I loved the descriptive imagery. My imagination went crazy with all the amazing scenes that were described in this book and the detailed characters. I loved it.
My favorite part in the story was the interaction between Mr. Baggins and Golhem. It made me laugh so hard.
Spoke clearly and was not afraid to sing the songs in the book which surprised me.
It really was. I never wanted to press that pause button.
Very good book, highly recommended to read before you go see the movie and have your imagination ruined
Yes, I would definitely listen to this book again. There are so many little gems about the saints and their lives and examples of how you can use their experiences to help you in your own life. It was so jammed packed I want to listen to it over and over again and take notes. I loved it!
There wasn't really just one memorable moment in this book. Each chapter dove into another Saint. Each time I turned the book on I was taken into their world and given a preview of them and their lives. I was also on James Martins personal journey as he met each saint not unlike you would meet a new friend and create a relationship with them.
I am currently going through the RCIA program at my Catholic church and am going to be baptized this Easter Vigil. During my class I was told that I could choose a saint to be named after for my confirmation. I knew about saints but felt like there where thousands to choose from and didn't know where to start.
I found this book and it was such a blessing. It taught me about a whole slew of saints. It also got me excited to keep learning about more saints and see how I can live better through their experiences.
I loved this book and can't wait to read it again to find things that I missed.
