What I love is that we get to know about her life story before the bench. It says a lot about her humility. She is a wonderful storyteller and I'm so glad that she allowed us to get to know her in this way.
I loved that she talked about real life issues that impact many families. She covered alcoholism, juvenile diabetes, poverty and the myriad of obstacles that many young latinos face along the road to higher education from not knowing how to study to not knowing they system.
She brings flavor and sounds a bit like the Justice given their backgrounds so at times I felt like it was the Justice herself reading it.
Yes. When she gives advice to women about neglecting their partners. It's so true and yet so frustrating to create that balance.
Every young latina with aspirations to enter the legal world must read this story.
If you are looking for a feel good book this is not it. But it is a beautifully written story that draws you in. There is some magic realism that feels almost real. It starts out slow and the reader grew on me after a while and by the end I decided she read it just right.
The magic is not quite over. Probst manages to pull off another story with a strong female character that gets her man.
Imagine sharing your deepest darkest secrets about your past boyfriends to a potential one - who would you talk about? How much would you share? I like the idea that these two characters are trying to get to know each other by divulging the strengths and weakneses about their past romances and in the process revealing a lot more about themselves than they would in a traditional relationship.
I also really enjoyed the two readers they brought a lot of character and emotion to the book. I liked being able to hear a man's voice when the male character spoke and a woman's when a female spoke. So much so that I'm wondering if there are any other books like this.
I should have read it. I did not like he reader. I kept saying slow down!! She read parts so fast I thought she was running out of breath.
When the man realizes who she is and understands that he is being played.
If the story had been read much slower it would have been better. What was the rush? I even tried to slow down the speed but it was way to slow. It was very inconsistent and bothered me so much that I couldn't wait to finish the story and move on.The description caught my attention but the characters were not developed. Characters were introduced but not developed - like the doctor he was sitting in for. The history between the two was very vague and I was surprised to hear that he had liked her all along as well. Didn't really make sense. The writer, like the reader, were in rush to finish the story.
It's hard to say because the book was too short and I don't feel like I got to know the characters at all.
I thought the story and the characters could have been developed a little more. I wish there had been a little bit more about what they were like when they were younger. Develop the story about what happened - I didn't understand from the story that he was into her at all when she was younger. It felt like it was truncated and I was disappointed.
I don't know I only heard the audio version and the reader was perfect.
My favorite part of the book was Pi's openness to practice three different religions. His description of each one was priceless. Adults in his life tried to make him choose one. His reasoning "I love god!" - who can argue with that?
Pi was my favorite. He was able to portray a precocious and witty child and later a young man and his journey so well. I loved this character.
I wouldn't. Now that I finished it I can't think of what else to call it.
I had heard it was a good book but was kind of hesitant because the movie previews just showed a boy with a tiger in a boat. I was mildly interested. I had it on my list of books to hear for a month before I finally gave in and I absolutely loved it. A must read. One of my favorites this year. You won't be disappointed.
Yes - it was an interesting story with a few twists and turns.
Yes - It had an interesting story line.
Yes - the reader was good.
I'm not sure.
