I was into this story in the beginning. It was interesting to hear how Starbucks started and how products came to life.
However, I stopped reading it after the first half. It became too repetative and didn't have me hooked enough to continue.
Yes - it was suspenseful and fascinating.
I almost cried when Joe found his way back into the varsity boat and his team members welcomed him back. Beautiful scene.
What a story.
I have always heard great things about this book, but am left wondering if I read the same book.
I'm sure this was a great book about listening to your heart and working towards your goals a long time ago, but I have heard it all before. I did not get anything from this book that was new or memorable or ground breaking.
Read it if you want, but I didn't not find anything special about it.
However, Jeremy Irons has such a lovely dramatic voice. I would listen to another one of his.
I read this book with high expectations. I forgot that it was written for teenagers, not 30-somethings. As long as you remember the target audience for this book, you will be fine.
The idea is interesting. It's post-apocalyptica US-meets-reality-television. Some creative concepts and visuals came from this idea.
The end became a little long and at times cringable, but don't give up. I was wrong about the end.
