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.
I had high expectations for this book because so many raved about it. It was good but not great in my opinion.
I'm a reasonably organized person but this book helped me tremendously. I appreciated that the author gave me permission to get of told bridesmaids dresses, my Grandfather's hat, and other sentimental things that I was just hanging onto.
Hahahahahahaha. Definitely made me laugh. An enjoyable read. I was quite impressed with how true to Austen's characters the author remained. Overall, pleasantly surprised!
This was a fine biography. Not particularly interesting and not particularly performed well. Just okay.
Well written, enjoyable, and personable. I like how Rob Lowe says the interactions he appreciates and looks for the most are sincere ones and connecting with people on a deeper level. He demonstrates that through his story-telling. His book has a feeling of openness that makes one feel like old chums.
Elizabeth Smart is an incredible woman who shares her story in a profound way. Not only does she detail the account of her abduction, she shares insights into her story of healing. It is amazing to me that while she was taken by a man who claimed religious dominance, she never turned her back on God. In fact, she says she felt watched over by Him.
The parts I found most touching are when she talked about her Grandfather and not letting her abductors steal another minute of her life. What an incredible perspective.
Where is part two of the story? Well read--very enjoyable, but incomplete. Not sure why Audible has this version available.
While I listened to this book several years ago, it still haunts me today. A well told, well thought out story of abuse that shouldn't be taken lightly even though it is written from the perspective of the young child.
C.S. Lewis is a favorite author of mine, but I think I missed major themes from this book. It would be an excellent book club book as it would take many people to help me uncover all that this story holds.
An interesting re-telling of the Cupid and Psyche from the perspective of Psyche's sister Orual. Read if you're ready for something that will make you think!
I fell in love with this book almost instantly and have listened to it several times. One of the great classics that should be read continually. The commentary about the turn of the century, poverty, school, and growing up is lovely.
It is easy to come to love each of the characters as the story gives you a glimpse into each of their perspectives.
