Yes, I had first listened to Mrs. Kennedy and me which led me to this book. I will probably visit this book again in the future. I usually take a book to work to listen to on my job, so sometimes I miss things in the book.
I think the will power Ethel Kennedy displayed while awaiting word on JFK jr. She was certain he was coming to the wedding of her daughter and would not except that he would not make it.
Jackie-- I thought I would cry when I heard the words Jackie said after Bobby's death--oh my God they are shooting Kennedys.
the Kennedys up close and personal
I liked the story. The ups and downs of training a service dog was fascinating.
A dog named Boo--both books were about overcoming obstacles that are associated with disabilities. But Daisy was a little more of a feel good book about all kinds of people than the Boo book was.
no it has too much information that I considered superfluous
this book needs to be edited and all material that really doesn't pertain directly to the story needs to be taken out.
yes put this down as one book I don't want to listen to again
there were so many different tangents going in directions that it was hard to concentrate on--don't get me wrong I love history but too many people just clog up the story--sigh it could have been so good
this is just soap opera details--not a history book I couldn't even finish it.
this book had places that I think just dropped the story. I was really disappointed because Brock and Bodie Thoene are some of my all time favorite authors. This story just skipped around in a lot of places and was hard to keep track of the story line.
I really enjoyed this book -the twists the story took made it so interesting and well worth listening to ...I think this book is in the upper third of the books I listen to. However, I am such an eclectic reader that it is hard to rank books--I just like so many genres.
This is a legal seat belt suspense (sorry Brandilyn Collins)-a little of Brandilyn Collins, a little of Nora Roberts and a lot of twists and turns.
No but I liked his voice
I might have to listen again just to verify what I thought the ending was--I usually listen to my audio downloads at work while I am auditing a large bill for the VA --sometimes I need to go back and listen to certain sections of a book because I might have been too wrapped up in my work then I have to say huh? did I hear what I thought I heard?
Horrific compelling and inspirational
Rebecca. She witnessed such terrible tragedies and yet had the dignity to endure and forgive the ones who hurt her.
The scene where the neighbor called
Rebecca asking her forgiveness for terrorizing her family
This was a book that made such an impression on me that I did not want the story to end.
this is a book about finding what you really want in life. It teaches a lesson that what you think you want and what you really want are sometimes different things. It is a cute funny story reminiscent of the Herriot veterinary books only told with people.
Carolyn Jourdan the author. I like the way she changed from being all involved in the phony crowd she worked with to becoming a person involved with people and their feeling.
Yes--it was not that long and it had very funny parts in it. I just wanted to see what happened to the main character.
good like Unbroken
When Baeder kept trying to escape and the Germans took his artificial legs.
At first the narrator was difficult to understand but once you get into the story where the flying occurs-this book really takes off.
Yes, I always take a book to listen to at work while I am doing data entry, at the end of the day when the story wasn't finished I was unsure if I could wait until the next day.
I couldn't stop telling my co-workers about this book. It has been a long time since I read a book that had me laughing and talking about it when I finished.
This is such a funny story considering it deals with cancer. Josh just was determined to have a uniform. . .regardless of circumstances or what life dealt him.
Josh - he is extremely funny and clever about coming up with some of the most outlandish ideas.
Josh brought his full emotionally packed story--I don't think anyone else could have made this book as much fun as it was.
This was a book that was very fun to read--I laughed out loud at some of the events that happened in the story.
