Intelligent, Insightful and Enthralling
The Outsiders due to the intro/retrospection and the way in which it's told from a 'beyond one's age' wisdom yet is true to the youthful nature of the story.
Melody, Conner, Mrs V., Claire, (Ok, all of them!) An absolutely outstanding narrator.
It is a very touching story and the narrator truly brings it to life. There couldn't be a better reader for this book.
perhaps a pdf to accompany the audio.
It's simply not meant for audio. Very disappointed. Tough to follow and difficult to get into.
It's not the narration it's the content.
Yes. It's the field guide you've been looking for.
It gets to the heart of the matter with real world scenarios and practical advice. It gives the reader an observational perspective on their own behavior. The whole book may not pertain to you but you can be sure that you will be able to apply some of it to your life.
I liked the scenario's given and the 'split view' of what was happening internally.
To stand back and let life happen...worry is only a facade and trickery of the mind. You will be alright no matter what.
Worth a read and a re-read
Better advice. This is not something that would be 'new'. Basically remember to say thank you and treat people with respect and decency. This book is more or less telling you to mind your manners.
Not in the genre per se...but definitely this author. Not impressed.
Friend, "Welcome Home"
What I liked best about this book is that it can be listened to any number of times and still hold it's potency. You may extract new messages from each read. This book is suitable for all ages.
There is not any one scene that was my favorite as they all play so wonderfully upon one another. It's truly a story.
It's the kind of book that is perfect for a cold winter's day. You do want to listen to it all in one sitting but with a child's heart and a cup of cocoa.
Well worth a read or more. This book as well as 2 and 3 remain on my bookshelf - others come and go, this one stays.
YES....but not in a big hurry to do so....this book is hard to digest.
No, as every book is different and deserves a honest chance.
More engaging material. I don't think it was the performance that was the issue. It just seemed so very dry and difficult to get into.
I would try to make it more engaging. It was like reading an antiquated clinical dissertation on the interest of the author.
This is NOT a book that lends itself to learning the Tarot, nor is it a book that is 'easy to listen to'...
Absolutely not. In fact it almost turns a person off of it. Told from a very feminist perspective, spirituality is left out while the emphasis is placed on religion. Though it has 'rituals' in its name the ones presented are nothing more than glorified meditations. Very uninspiring. But, to be fair, I may not have been the target audience and some may find this book to be very good...
I found the format interesting. It wasn't a book as much as it was a lecture done in a conversational style. Least interesting..was the stance the author took. It is very much a 60's sort of feel with an us against them mentality.
Good question. The performance itself is ok
Not in my opinion.
Scott Cunningham may be a better choice if looking into this area.
