I would definitely recommend this audiobook! I love all of the great factual information that you learn while the author still keeps you fully entertained. I have already listened to it twice and recommended it to a lot of people. I am sure I will probably listen to it again too. Each time I hear it I pick up on more facts.
I loved learning the facts behind so many of the warnings and threats you hear as a kid. I kept thinking that my mom HAS TO listen to this one because there are so many things he proved wrong in this book that I heard my mom say to me growing up.
There are not really characters in this book. Ken Jennings does a good job of connecting with the listener though.
So many things! The proof or dismissal of so many "old wives tales"!
This is a must read/listen!
Inspiring, LOL funny, hooked
The whole feel of the book was great! I loved the different voices and how the story all came together. Simply a great book.
Too many good ones to choose from
Heart touching, Frustrating, Family
This story was all about family dynamic and how we handle tough situations. High levels of stress can tear your world and your family apart if you aren't careful.
I think Amelia was my favorite. Lost little girl is a world focused on her sister.
The ending... don't want to ruin it for you.
I also liked when she got to go to camp.
Wish the end would have been a little different.
Dynamic, unpredictable, thought provoking
The hero of the story changes thought out the book. It makes you want to know what happens and you can't stop listening
I think my favorite character was probably Amy. She is a very dynamic character
I laughed more than I cried but the laughter was mostly in disbelief and awe of the story. It is a far fetched story but still believable. I think this is one of the things that made me really like the book.
Strange book in some ways but a very interesting and dynamic storyline. I love books like this that are unpredictable with lots of twists and turns that you don't see coming. The characters are very interesting and you can't decide who you want to root for.
