Absolutely! C.S. Lewis' narrative is powerful and full of truth. It is the story of the constant battle for human souls and the many, many ways we deceive ourselves right out of salvation.
When Wormwood is describing the state of the church, it seemed he had spent time in the same pew as I have.
The reading was powerful but his voice was very deep and hard to hear when not turned up.
I believe everyone should read this book-it is such a great picture of the human condition and our precarious balance between heaven and hell.
Absolutely! It is such a great illustration of all the reasons we struggling to truly have faith in the unseen.
It was reminiscent of the Chronicles of Narnia-written for children yet there are so many layers of meaning that you can't truly appreciate it until you are an adult.
When the Princess was with her grandmother-such a beautiful picture of the peace that comes when we are truly 'home."
When the Princess is trying to introduce Curdy to her grandmother and he cannot see her.
This is a powerful, beautiful story and highly entertaining. I plan to share it with my kids.
It was such a powerful story-I was hooked from page one.
I wish she'd been better able to distinguish her characters. It is difficult to track dialog with the cues of the written word.
No-you almost had to take it in slowly over time-although it was disorienting to read about her disorientation at times.
I will never look at someone with dementia the same way again.
Zombies. I had always heard about what a great classic this is but I don't get it.
The Princess and the Goblin by George MacDonald-just to get the icky taste out of my brain.
His characters are distinct and he conveys the full range of their emotions.
I learned the signs and symptoms of anemia. Great news-I don't have it.
I imagine this is what we'd get if Ernest Hemmingway had decided to write the screenplay for a pornographic movie.
It is one of my top 5.
The eulogy written by her friend-so funny!!
Mindy herself-she is delightful.
Not really-the book was nothing more and nothing less than I wanted: a light-hearted and hilarious memoir.
This book had all the sass and humor of Tiny Fey's but without the heavy-handed liberal ranting.
This has been one of my favorite listens. It is an incredible story about the psychology of power and John C. Reilly's performance is gripping and unforgettable.
Ken Kesey tells a story not only about the despicable treatment of those with mental illness in the 20th century but also about the potential we all have for great evil in the right conditions. Nurse Ratchett is as chiling a villain as you will find and McMurphy is an unlikely hero.
He conveys Cheif Bromden's vision with conviction and heart.
I would enjoy talking to Harding. He has piercing insight into human nature and the mechanisms of society.
Probably not-the book went on WAY after the real story had been told.
This is a haunting and beautiful Holocaust story. However, the modern storyline was sooo shallow and pathetic as to be a distraction and did not enhance the story at all. This book makes it clear why people hate the French. Such a shame because there was definitely potential there!
Such a great culmination of a wonderful trilogy! Keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout.
Absolutely! So hard to turn it off when I had to head to work!
Definitely the best of the Hunger Games series!
I can't imagine actually reading the book because it was so entertaining just to hear Tina tell her story.
She does get a little political at times and is awfully condescending toward the right so depending on your own leanings, this could be a selling point or a deal breaker.
Despite all her self-deprecating remarks, Tina has spot-on comic timing, which was quite enjoyable.
When she talks about her struggle with deciding whether to have a second child, it was like she had been reading my diary. She is very genuine and transparent.
