I would definitely listen to Parable of the Talents again because it is such an amazing story about perseverance. Laure Olamina is an awesome young woman who is determined to survive in this post-apocalyptic time. And while her religion is not one I would choose, I understand why the Acorn community lives according
There is a moment in Parable of the Talents when the protagonist and her community are enslaved by a fanatical Christian group and it is such a defeating and hopeless moment. However, things do turn around for the Acorn community...
This book starts off EXTREMELY slow!!!!!!!!!!!! It doesn't get remotely interesting until about chapter 70. I don't really see what all of the hype is about, honestly. I just couldn't really connect with the characters. Lincoln is a nice guy, but I couldn't connect with him. The email conversations between Beth and Jennifer were interesting, very nice dialogue. Outside of that, I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would.
I loved that there was an unexpected twist at the end. It was just as funny, if not funnier than White Girl Problems! Babe never disappoints!!
A co-worker recommended this book to me and I was hooked from the beginning. The bond between friends is near and dear to my heart, as I know what it is like to have an unconditional friendship (BFF). The narrator was awesome in her delivery and the storyline, though a little long winded, was well thought out and somewhat suspenseful. I would def listen to it again!
