This story will stay with me for the rest of my life. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to feel challenged to live with more gratitude, faith, and joy. The narration was excellent and the story was life-changing.
I LOVED Miller's book A Million Miles In A Thousand Years, so I was eager to purchase this one. I was disappointed. It took me two months to get through it because I just couldn't engage. I think a major problem was the narrator. He talked slowly, and he made Miller sound pompous. A Million Miles was narrated by Miller himself, and I loved his quick, self-depricating, funny delivery. There were some good insights in this book that have stayed with me and made me think about God in a different way--but I wouldn't strongly recommend this book to a friend. I might recommend a few chapters but certainly not the entire book.
The story itself is inspiring, but the writing was not beautiful or gripping. I wouldn't listen to it again, though I am glad I know about this story of commitment.
The main character is very likeable. I enjoyed listening to this book, but it didn't grip me like most novels do. An interesting story of a very unique life, but not a life-changing story.
A beautifully written epic about the struggles of women in Afghanistan. It was a difficult read but such an important one. At times I thought it was getting too long and involved, but it came together perfectly by the end. I fell in love with the two main characters and have thought of them often since I finished the book. Most of all, this book made me think about the world and my place in it--it made me profoundly grateful for my life, my family, and my freedoms.
This book made me think about my life and how I want to live a better "story." It made me feel reflective and inspired. Best of all, the book was funny and interesting, not preachy. I am going to buy the hard copy of the book now, so I can reread and annotate some of his profound insights...it was that good! A great listen.
