This is no good unless you really want to learn how to meditate. That was not my purpose.
I think, I got the message after less than ½ hour, but it just kept going on and on.
It was one of the extremely rare books that I quit long before the end. I often read even very boring books till the end but this one I just could not stand.
Good explications about the present state of everything and thoughts about the future accordingly.
He seems to have a good knowledge about politics and political structure in most of the world.
What would it take to keep the world stable while constantly balancing on the edge of disaster.
Fantastic emotional storytelling
All the authors other books.
Great emotional voices that makes the story get very much alive.
Nor laugh nor cry, but it certainly has the potential to bring up emotions of many kinds. It touched me very much.
As with the authors other books, I had a hard time figuring out the identity of everybody, because the story jumps in time and place. I struggled a lot with who-is-who and what were their names. At these points I would have liked to page back in a physical book to brush up on names.
No. I got the message.
No particular moment.
Did Jesus Exist?
Is Christ a made-up figure?
Interesting. I never knew, there was really so much evidence to be found.
I think so. But this is not for everyone. It would need some special interest in this subject, since it is not a traditional novel biografy
Her fathers friend. I do not remember his name.
I might. Now that I know the exact content, I would prefer a documentary style.
Never. I learned nothing from this one.
I'm sorry, but no.
If I could, I would have given no stars at all.
If I had not had so many other books that I would like to read, this is certainly one of those I would consider reading again.
The enhanced authenticity. This is fiction but I have no problem believing that this might as well be the true story of some unidentified persons.
Tahrir and Maryam.I find it fantastic how the author manages to let the bad guys show glimpses of something that just might have been nice - and the good guys show a tiny drop of evil.
The horror of everyday Afghanistan - then and now.
Fantastic mix of horror and kindness. Good and evil in fysical contact.
Revealing, explanatory and thorough
His voice is quite neutral but perfect for this kind of book. Being so neutral, it does not bring anything extraordinary.
Books and films like "The Wave" shortly and finely explains how movements like Nazism and the idea of the Third Rich come to rise. This is a thourogh description of how this could happen and why most Germans considered themselves innocent after the war because they learned how they had been betrayed by oratory and "mass movement".
This book describes these mechanisms more thoroughly and understandably than anything I have ever seen or heard before.
It reminds me of a myth about a Danish freedomfighter, caught by the Germans and sentenced to dead. While the soldier binds him to the pole for assacination, he says to the soldier: "You should know, that it is not you and the normal German we have been fighting - it is the evil that took host in you", and the German understood. A myth, but quite telling though.
Selvom jeg først er født i halvfjerdserne er det tidsbillede der stilles op ikke helt fjernt fra min egen barndom og det jeg har hørt om mine forældres barndom. Oplæseren bidrager virkelig meget til den samlede oplevelse.
Jeg har ikke nogen særlig foretrukken, men desværre genkender jeg træk fra fortællerens far i min egen mand. Hvis jeg nogensinde kunne få ham til at læse en bog som denne, ville jeg helt sikkert vælge at "prikke til ham" på den måde.
Den betyder alt. Det er den absolut perfekte stemme til denne historie. Den lyder virkelig som "bedstefar der fortæller historier fra sin barndom".
Man bliver helt sentimental.
Most of us like to have a glimpse of what happens behind the scenes.
He has a perfect voice for this kind of book - that is of course especially because he wrote the book and because he was there on many occasions descriped in the book.
Two steps forth - one step back.
The book became lengthy at moments but I am not sure what should have been left out. It is a very thorough book and I am not sure something less thorough would have made it a better book.
The fantastic story of this little girl and her courage.
The first evening in her new housbands family.
Everything. Her voice could not be more right for this book.
I love all kinds of biografies and autobiografies and this was definately no disappointment.
