I loved this book. The title intrigued me instantly so I gave it a try. I was never disappointed throughout the book. The story is about an African game preserve and the ongoing adventures of the staff and their animals and neighbors. The central focus is the increasingly intimate and loving relationship of Lawrence with his small herd of elephants.
As you can see by the host of positive reviews this book is a winner.
My favorite is still A Walk in the Woods but One Summer is an interesting and fun listen. The personalities and stories are interwoven so sometimes it is a little disorienting but you get used to it and go on. The stories and details keep coming like Niagara Falls so hang on and enjoy them all.
This was a good four star book and story. The character development was good and the story line was average to good. I would recommend this book but without enthusiasm.
I always enjoy Jim Rogers being interviewed because he is not afraid to tell the truth as he sees it. This is a good book and I enjoyed it. Doing his own narration was a positive thing for the story and the book.
I would recommend you buy and read Happy Happy Happy by Willie's father Phil Robertson and skip this one by Willie. Phil's book is more interesting and entertaining.
Phil Robertson is a real character and is having a life that is making a difference. His life before and after his conversion to Jesus is night and day. The book is the real deal and I enjoyed it very much.
This was truly a great story. It was not as exciting as Unbroken was just as well written and enjoyable. The narration enhanced the story and put you right into the story and the emotions of the characters. This is a book I would strongly recommend and listen to again.
Overall I thought this book was just above average and just below good, a solid three point five.
His experiences in school prior to basic training were average and gives a weak start to the book. I enjoyed the part about Bear's experience in military training the best. The remainder of the book waffled between three and four stars for me. I finished the book but was not enthralled by it. I would not recommend it.
I got through most of this book but it was a real push. It was just on and on. I would recommend Ghost in the Wires if you like this kind of topic. It is much better.
I loved this book from start to finish. Becky Musser is a real hero. The adversaries and odds she was fighting were overwhelming but she fought her foes with a growing confidence and dignity. Becky did the narration and it too was very well done. She expressed the emotions she was feeling in the various situations in such a way that you could feel the situations in a more personal and authentic way. I loved her interpretations of the Texas sheriff. :) I have read Under the Banner of Heaven and Escape and enjoyed them all but Witness gives you the best description of life inside the FLDS.
I loved this book. The title intrigued me but with a new author you never know, especially with no ratings. The book grabbed me right from the beginning and never let go. It is very well written. It is funny, interesting, quirky, just an overall good experience. If you want to go on a road adventure through the back roads of America and into local peoples homes and lives try this book. I do not think you will be disappointed.
