Over-dramatic and complete opposite of finding happiness in SIMPLE living.
No good.... her voice alone is pretty irritating honestly, with a side dish of bad actress.
I picked up a good or mildly enlightening point every 45 minutes (if that often). "Gift List" is a great idea and I will likely do it, however the story is unnerving when she spends an insane amount of words to, for example, add soap bubbles to the "gift" list. She dramatically describes the miracle bubbles for 30+ minutes, while barely mentioning her children playing in the yard.... I think she missed the boat.
NOT a live-changing book. The publisher's summary blows Voskamp's writing away and sets the potential reader up for great disappointment.
Just plain old not-so-great.... It seemed pretty negative, but it is a memoir so I suppose he's just telling it how he sees it. However the book was a far cry from the editor's summary and not what I expected.
