I don't think you necessarily need to have seen the movie Sideways or read the book to easily get into this novel. Miles is about as flawed a hero as possible in this novel. There is plenty of madcap adventures and redemptive moments. Pickett does a great job of bringing the auxiliary characters to life. Scott Brick is probably my new favorite narrator, he really brings Miles and the other characters to life.
Not everyone will love this book, a lot of people are going to be put off by all the excessive drinking and the promiscuous sex. Not to mention there are several places in the book where Miles is downright unlikable and it is hard to have sympathy for him. He is not the best of heroes but in the end he does become heroic. For me if you enjoyed the movie Sideways then you definitely need to get this book.
Yes this is just another formula romance story. But this is one of the really good formula romance stories. I had a great time listning to it and I look forward to another Susan Elizabeth Phillips novel.
Great book, a lot of practical advice. I would recommend this to my friends. I regularly read self-help books but this one is better than most. I will probably listen to it a few times.
It is an interesting subject. However I am not sure I learned very much from this book. I am not sure I can cover how mysticism shape our nation after listening to it.
I choose this book because I love all things California Costal area and Red Wood trees.
The book is really just a formula romance novel. Not as bad as some but not particularly great either.
Probably not, the narration was fine.
a solid formula romance.
I am almost done with listing to this the second time. This book explains so much about what we call psychic phenomenon. There has been a tremendous amount of research on the subject over the years. This research was performed in top universities and by the US government.
For me this book was very meaningful. I loved how she called all of us to be Christian Mystics. Honestly, if you just select one book for spiritual enrichment - this would be a good one to choose.
This book might have low ratings with some listners because it is not chock full of bible facts but more geared toward spiritual enrichment. It talks alot about the different saints of the past. For me it was precious.
