I loved this book. It carried the message that in giving our lives away we find meaning and purpose and joy.
No suspense, no intrigue. I had a very hard time making it through until the end. The first book in this series was better and showed promise. I am not planning to waste my time on the third book in the series.
An honest book about the realities of living with a serious mental illness. This book offers understanding to those who have a loved one who is mentally ill, it impresses those who work with the mentally ill to show compassion and respect, and to those who themselves have a serious mental illness, it offers hope that a fulfilling life is still possible. A wonderful read. I highly recommend it.
Beautifully written. A rich story told from the perspective of the loyal dog. This was on my wish list for a long time. I kept putting off listening to it, but I am so glad I finally did. It far exceeded my expectations. Definitely one of the very best books I listened to this year.
Mater Story Teller, Rich Characters and Wonderfully Detailed Storyline. I NEVER wanted this book to end!!!!!!!!!!!
I loved this book from beginning to end as the characters grew and their outlook changed over time. The main character begins as a selfish & spoiled northern young woman who begins going to abolitionist meetings only because the man she has her eye on believes slavery must stop. Although she begins her journey for selfish motives, as she gets involved , her heart is won over by the cause. She also learns she needs to put her life into the care of a God who loves all people no matter what differences may separate us on earth.
A delightful novel about triplet sisters. I love my own sister so much and I laughed out loud to read the story of these irreverent, funny, highly independent and fiercely loyal sisters.
Incredible story, well developed characters. I FELT what they were going through. Liane Moriarty is an amazing author. She shows brilliant understanding of women. Her characters are humorous and believable. This novel exceeded my expectations. Liane Moriarty never stop writing!!!
I enjoyed the follow up book just as much as the first one. Star Girl remains a friendly and extremely unique individual. She is very accepting of those she meets and she makes friends with other unusual and interesting people. After reading this book I feel my own creativity stirred and I feel inspired to go out and LIVE!
A lovely and often humorus story of a teenage girl attending public school after years of being homeschooled. This girl has her own unique way of thinking, dressing and participating in high school life. Star Girl is comfortable with being herself even though she is different from the other kids. Star Girl is like a star beam shining new light
& life into the local high school.
This is a well written novel about loving someone who suffers from a mental illness. I appreciated the realistic dilemmas faced by both the person living with the mental illness and the ones who loved him. How does one support this person without trying to control him? How does a person love one with a mental illness and not lose herself in the chaos? Does medication help or does it create as many problems as it is supposed to be solving? The book was beautifully narrated and executed. The story in no way sugarcoated the issues involved in living with mental illness but the characters were not without hope or sprinkles of joy. It was a satisfying read.(listen.)
