I did not care at all for this book. The author seemed to be doing a complete turnaround from what I thought the book would be. I thought it would contain learning about magic and the history of magic. Boy did I think wrong.
I could not even finish it--I thought it was that bad. But different strokes for different folks maybe someone out there who loves math etc will like it.
Mr. Montlvan should have told the truth about the VA. He trashes the very people who determined medically what his condition was. If he is like the other veterans that I work with every day, he is getting a pension, free meds and probably his education was paid for by the VA.
I once ask a vet why he had such a cute king charles cavalier spaniel that he was calling his service dog--he looked me straight in the eye and said the dog is a chick magnet.
I think that is exactly what Mr. Montalvan uses Tuesday for--to attract attention. I am not saying that service dogs are not of benefit to veterans and that the wounded warrior program is not a great program that benefits the veterans--I am only saying that Tuesday is in the role of attention getter which is what Mr. Montalvan is really wanting.
nothing by this author
Mr. Montalvan could have reserved his bitterness about the US government, after all he never said he turned down the VA benefits promised to the armed service members for serving our country--if he is so all fired happy about being a cuban then return the VA benefits and go back to Cuba.
Yes, Richard Pimentolo did not work so hard on the ADA for veterans to have a whiner like this author complaining. America Mr. Montalvan love it or leave--but if you go leave Tuesday he is the best part of your story!
This is the worst bunch of lies I have ever read--If you folk want to find out about real service dogs--talk to Freedom Service dogs in Colorado--they will show you how and why service dogs are needed by the veterans-and trust me they won't complain while doing it!
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.
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
