Doc is a refreshing look at the life of one of the greatest young pitchers of all time. I remember his rookie year, the World Series year and I remember the struggles with drugs. I am thankful he took an honest look at himself and presented it in a way that may help others become honest with themselves. Having worked in Substance Abuse Treatment I appreciate how he finally realized that being open and honest made life better. After all, "If you hide nothing, you have nothing to hide."
Amanda Lindhout tells the story of her captivity. Even though the beginning of the book was somewhat slow, the description of her and Nigel's suffering at the hands of the Muslim extremist helps us understand some of the danger in the world. It is not as safe a place as we here in America seem to think it is. My step-daughter was in Junior High School with Ms. Lindhout and it was fun hearing the places mention in central Alberta, Canada.
Team of Rivals held my attention even though it was a long book. I really like history so it held my attention. I learned things about Lincoln I had not known before so I really enjoyed this book. Too bad the movie missed about 60% of this book.
Wow, even though there is statements of reincarnation, the story is very intriguing. My interest was held throughout. The story helped me appreciate my dogs more than before, and I already appreciated them. If you are looking for an interesting read, here is a good book to try.
Patrick Stewart should have read the entire series. I loved his ability to bring this story alive. This was a great conclusion for the story and had a perfect explanation of the unpardonable sin.
The Magician's Nephew started out as an average book, but as the story developed it became a delight to listen to. The narrator presented the story in a very entertaining manner.
Shasta is such a brave little boy that has the adventure of a lifetime. He met a young woman and two talking horses that had much of the adventure with him. I enjoyed this book.
Traveling to the end of the world, what an adventure. I loved the descriptions of the islands and the adventures that the children were a part of.
CS Lewis developed an interesting tail that carries the story of Narnia into a very interesting space. I appreciate this book.
C.S. Lewis creates a fantastic land that helps one understand how love is the great equalizer. Hate is the destroyer and it destroys the one who is doing the hating. Love is the "stuff" of life and the one who loves will find love indeed. This story weaves pride, lust, atonement and deliverance into a great tale for children.
Prince Caspian follows The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe with a delightful tale about the Children's return to Narnia. The story does answer what happened later and held my interest now as it did 50 years ago. The narrator made the story come alive.
