If you want a reason to stop eating at chain restaurants, this is it! Well written, well read book about all the things restaurants do to make us eat more and come back. Whether you like it or not, it will change the way you view food.
Naughty, naughty, naughty. I'm a self-proclaimed and proud prude. And this is not a book for us.
I would probably give it 2.5 stars. I love the movie a lot. And I loved Saving Mr. Banks. But the Mary Poppins in the book was not Julie Andrews. She was pretty harsh and vain. (Something they allude to in the movie and play, but it went overboard in the book.)
Anyway, sit down and watch the movie instead of reading the book. :)
BJ super disappointed me with this book. I only got a few minutes into it and had to turn it off. So much swearing at the beginning. Blech. Not something I want to listen to!
Don't spend your time reading this book about revenge, it is unsatisfying. Read Les Miserables, a book about redemption--it is VERY satisfying and inspiring.
This book took such a unique view of World War II; showing the perspective of a German soldier was extremely fascinating and helped me understand how the German citizens may have felt during Hitler's reign.
Definitely a fascinating and eye-opening read.
I hadn't listened to many of Jim Gaffigan's sketches so I wondered if I would enjoy the book, but I found it on an Audible sale one day and bought it. The whole book was thoroughly enjoyable. I am a total prude when it comes to content, and so I appreciated how clean and funny it was. For those who have families or are part of a family, this book is for you.
While this was a cute story, that was well-performed, I don't know that I would recommend to anyone to run out and read it. It is a fun story for really young girls.
I'm new to the fantasy genre but have thoroughly enjoyed the Mistborn series. The story of a girl and her efforts to save a people from an unknown enemy. Strong characters, strong story, and well-read!
I love when I get lost in a book. That is one of the best feelings ever. I'm not much of a fantasy reader, but totally enjoyed book #1 of the Mistborn series. It seems everywhere I turn, someone is talking about Brandon Sanderson and what an excellent author he is. I would now add my voice to that crowd.
The Mistborn series is about a group of slaves trying to defeat the lord ruler. Engaging, well-written, with good characters. All in all, a very fun read. And I'm very glad that there are more books in this series!
I'm not a follower of the Freakonomics podcast so I found this book especially interesting! Loved the insights into thinking like a freak, as well as the stories told. Well written, well performed!
