I did like hearing Mother Teresa speak her own words but at times it was hard to understand the recording.
There were many memorable sayings. Mother telling her listeners that they do not have to go anywhere to start loving and helping. Start where you are. We are not called to succeed but to be faithful.
I was inpressed that she served and even encouraged people of other faiths to pray within their own faith.
Some of her saying have been over used and this dated the book for me. However, there were still a lot of inspirational thoughts.
I didn't read the printed version.
From a teacher's point of view, it came across realistic. I don't know that non-teachers would believe all we do.
I liked all the true teacher anecdotes.
No, maybe two sittings.
I found it insightful and enjoyed the true teaching experiences. I think most teachers would like this book but I don't know that others would believe it.
The book had some good and interesting information, but it was way too long and had too many statistics.
I would have condensed it.
Basic, ok, adequate.
I had to break up the book by listening to about 3 hours and then switching books for a while before going back to it. Many times I considered not finishing it.
I got this book because I am very fond of the Kate Daniels books by Ilona Andrews. This did NOT let me down. It is written in a very similar style. It has a strong no nonsense female character.
Rose is my favorite character in this book because she is strong and a no nonsense kind of gal. She can hold her own and doesn't mind proving it.
She also narrated the Kate Daniels books. In both series, I've gotten very into the characters as enacted in her voice.
The beautiful Rose has thorns!
All around Wonderful!
The discriptions of the insides of the tents.
The ending, it didn't let you down.
I wouldn't want to listen to it all in one sitting because I wanted it to last and the imagery to last.
The narrator, Jim Dale of Harry Potter, made this listen perfect. His reading made the book that much more magical.
