It felt like being taken back in time and into the world of the characters
The Author was my favorite as she put so much intensity into the book that her reflections were like an additional character.
I had no idea just how intellectual and avant guard Georgiana really was. I loved hearing how she impacted the world of politics and knowledge in her time.
The film was not nearly as informative as the book, in fact it sensationalized but at the same time glossed over the most sensational aspect which was that the duchess was a very modern woman living in a world where women could and did make a difference.
Fantastic reader, her voice added to the ambiance of the story.
My husband listened with me on vacation and we both will miss the people of the story.
A book that will open your eyes and allow you to understand the war in Afghanistan.
The book is an entry point into America's war in Afghanistan as well as into the afghani culture. I found myself not wanting it to end.
The last bit of the book when the author describes PTSD was just brilliant in its ability to explain a concept most people cannot grasp for lack of a personal experience. Having a clearer picture of what our vets are going thought when the come home from deployment has made me look at military personnel in a different light.
Overall the book is an easy and fun read it will show you the good and the bad of life in a war zone. The author has an incredible ability to draw you in!
Get this book!!
The author knows how to write and to convey information without patronizing the audience - she is about information (draw your own conclusions). The book also does not fall into the statistics trap.
Without hesitation an excellent (albeit frightning) resource on climate change and it's consequences.
Reader is also perfectly suited.
I would recomand this to anyone who would like to understand the crusades.
They are well thought out and brilliantly delivered.
