Probably not. It wasn't a bad book but the story didn't build to an interesting climax. I get that it's an exposition of child prostitution but it ended too abruptly and was too short. Very good description and plays to all 5 senses.
She has an Indian accent so gave life to the little girl telling the story.
No, it would be too disturbing I think.
I feel like the really interesting part of this idea, all the problems that follow on a failure of the digital world and computerized systems, was glazed over in favor of how viruses work and a poorly written ethno-political motivation of digital attack.
I was not familiar with this phenomenon until downloading the audio book. It must be the strangest book I have ever been privy to. It is witty and hilarious at times and downright strange at other times. I think it is about the right length because it gets weirder and weirder as it goes on and I'm not sure I could take the insanity if it were much longer.
There were really well written and interesting parts of this novel, but it ended abruptly and not in the way where I really want to see an epilogue or book 2. I think the author got bored of where the story was headed and ended it quickly before it could go too far off the tracks. Not sure I'd recommend it.
It was a great read, very descriptive and interesting and many levels. The ending is a little "well jeez why didn't they think of that years ago" but it's a great read all the same.
It could have been great. I love the idea of paranormal/miraculous/unexplainable but this was lacking. The mystery portion wasn't necessarily predictable but it wasn't a great jaw-dropper either. The whole story left me a little unfulfilled and uninterested.
A brutally honest account of coming to terms with having a disabled child and how life changes, both the good stuff and the bad. There were moments of discomfort but I realize that’s not because the author was being inappropriate or rude, but because she was relaying honest truths, and sometimes such truths are hard to hear.
The book progressed well and had that uncommon quality of not wanting to put it down but afraid to hear the rest. A very good read for people with children with disabilities because it reassures you that even when you have awful thoughts about your “broken” child, you’re not the only one who has ever thought that about your child, and that’s okay.
A lot of this story was about the author’s spiritual journey, love, forgiveness, peace and self-control. She seems to be the “perfect” person, stifling anger, judgment and bittnerness. I found myself both in awe and disbelief at the same time. She was almost TOO perfect a person. After a while all that got old. I enjoy biographical works like this and “Beyond Belief” by Jenna Miscavige Hill was a better read.
The story was fantastical but the characters didn't seem suprised or shocked by anything that happened. One of the main characters just disappeared from the story one day without explanation. There was a lot of repetition which may have been part of the literary style but came across as poor editing. It was VERY long and could have been cut in half without sacrificing the story. After putting in a couple dozen hours I felt it would have been a waste to stop listening but having gotten to the end and not being particularly satisfied with the blah ending I wish I'd stopped listening earlier.
It was interview style. Why do you do X? Because...
It wasn't a story or even particularly interesting. Having an autistic son myself I was hoping for some insight cloaked in a good biography but its severly lacking in both.
"If you've met one child with autism you've met one child with autism". While their was some interesting material its not applicable to even MOST autistic kids since they are so different. This book stereotypes autistic kids.
Narration was good.
Its pretty short so yes it was alright.
