    Would you consider the audio edition of Bittersweet to be better than the print version?

    Yes, read by the author, you can hear her inflections and emphasis, this adds more depth to the story


    What other book might you compare Bittersweet to and why?

    Self help with a strong Christian core. Don't normally read this genre, but she made it approachable and not preachy.

    Listening to her tell her own story really adds layers of depth


    What did you learn from Bittersweet that you would use in your daily life?

    You can't control what life gives you, but you can control your response and your interpretation of it

    I have recommended it to friends and family

    Story
    (1884)

    First appearing in print in 1890, the character of Sherlock Holmes has now become synonymous worldwide with the concept of a super sleuth. His creator, Conan Doyle, imbued his detective hero with intellectual power, acute observational abilities, a penchant for deductive reasoning and a highly educated use of forensic skills. Indeed, Doyle created the first fictional private detective who used what we now recognize as modern scientific investigative techniques.

    David says: "mouth watering"
    "Great to see how the legend began"

    The ladies voices


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
