Roth could take lessons from Wallace Stegner. You don't have to descrive everything about sex in every book. Humans know about sex. Use words that inspire not just to sell books.
Seymour, he is doing the rightthing.
The narrator was great.
It was a great book I am looking forward to seeing what they do with the movie. It represents my lifespan. I fel sorry for the younger people in the book.
Tell Roth to avoid John Updike's determined to exalain sex in every book. We got it.
No this is not a book but a mess. A nightmare of sentences or disjointed thoughts that that the author says began in his head. Who would say something like that. There is no outline, no story, no reference of order. It could be an attempt at how not to write. Save your money.
History of Spain by Walt Disney.
The narrator reads as if he hates the USA and we should speak Ute.
A character would be a good idea, he uses names but not enough information is given to have a character.
I heard the author speak on CPAN Book TV and thought I would give it a try even though I could bare understand him and he appeared insane. My mistake.
We are great, are are better than anyone in the world and will never die. We are Chopra's. Well.......
No thank you
It's a book?!!
I'll pat your back and mine if you'll pat mine.
Get a narrator
The book would have been better if about half of the characters were cut and the remaining characters developed.
Save your money.
The author;s discussion and relation of Southern Baptist"s is mostly accurate. She leaves a lot out about the behavior of Nigerians and the nature of diabetes spending most of time in an idylic reminiscence of stories living in the past. The life of illness she lived leaves too much out about the politics of getting a multiple transplant. Her medical information is too but extremely brief.Someone is left out of the story.There is too much missing about how she lives now. It is definitely not a "Poisonwood Bible" comparison..
No there is not enough realistic detail to be helpful too dreamy.
Yes the narrator was ok.
The truth about what happened. Such as sources for the causes of diabetes and then the causes of kidnet. They are not scientific and if she decided to use them why and when. I have had Type 1 DM 42 years.
If you don't have diabetes or are not a Baptist or a recovering Baptist esoecialy privileged Baptist you won't make it though the book.l
No! It's someone talking with their hand over their mouth and leaving out a lot of the vowels.
No! The author should try plumbing.
The Mountains did a good job.
This is like listening to a book read backwards. Save your time and money.
The story is ugly and an obvious attempt to be ugly and in your face. The dumbing down of American literature has arrived with this piece. It is unfit to read.
Hired Bill Cosby as an editor.
Read instead of yelll.
It taught me who to avoid as an author.
Save your money.
I have read the bio of Wilson and William James and the beginning is very interesting. Then you will need tooth picks which the author tells you about puss or Puss. You will get sick of puss. Then wear the seat belt so you can finish the book.
Leave out the middle.
Too much puss and snuff and shouldn't the murder be more central than Wilson, Princeton and the Nassau Club?
The humor of Walt and Henry with the dog in the city.
Walt's care for his daughter in his aspirations for her to have the corner office and of course the surprise death.
He is Walt and John Valjean.
I want them to go back to Wyoming.
I am glad Walt loves his daughter, I have a daughter.
Good to put you to sleep.
A great disappointment. I listened 3 times and still didn't get it.
No the author never touches on any genuine issue. It is pop culture-hype only.
No just this author, read Susan Jacoby.
That's all it was a performance a no brainer.
The author who was the narrator.
The author needs to be serious aboout why he changed from believer to non-believer. This book is just pulp.
