I purchased this book not knowing who the author was, so I didn't know she was a Christian speaker. The book description doesn't mention that this book is extremely biblical based, so I was completely shocked when I started hearing scripture after scripture blaring out of my car stereo. I'm a new Christian and have been getting more heavily involved with the Word, so it was a pleasant surprise for me, but I can imagine that one who wasn't expecting this and is NOT a Christian would probably be pretty ticked.
That said, I absolutely love the book. I find the scripture references particularly helpful since I am not all that familiar with the Bible and would have no clue where to look for some of these things.
Overall, I would say it's probably going to be a big life changer for me.
(On a side note, the speaker sounds like she's from Boston...it's not overly annoying, but it's not the most pleasant listening experience... no offense to Bostonians.)
Wow. That's the word I choose to sum up this book. I don't normally feel compelled to write book reviews, but this one definitely earned one. The Martian had me on the edge of my seat for most of the book. It also had me literally laughing out loud several times right up until the very end. You definitely need to read this book no matter what genre you usually like to read. I'm normally not into space travel or scientific stuff, but this is absolutely one I am so glad I bought.
