Nothing. It is a sweet story but it was not enough to be a book. Would have made a great short story or documentary. I kept reading it thinking it would get better but there was nice dialogue but no action.
It was a great story, but it was like being hit over the head with it...over and over and over again.
The best part of the book was her performance. Her accents, especially Ovid sounded authentic. The voice of Dellarobia was a little too monotone to me. I found my mind wandering when she would go on and on about everything.
It is an important topic with real issues that affect us all. She certainly did a lot of scientific research and it seemed genuine and accurate. Although it addresses social and ecological consciousness, there was just not enough material for a book.
I did like the way she developed the characters, but all in all i did not like her writing style. It is doubtful I will read another Kingsolver Book.
Some new information. I read the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and it was amazing. I was looking for additional insight and applications when I chose this book. All the examples were exactly the same as the in the original book with very little new information. The only way this book makes sense is if you have not read the first book.
I don't know. I was craving more based on the first book but this one was such a letdown.
It didn't seem genuine. In his effort to be sincere, it sounded almost fake.
All of it. I would have added some new stories, ways of applying the 7 habbits.
I really felt this was a wast of money if you read the original book. TOO much repetition.
Yes, it was a thoughtful story with great characters and an interesting plot.
How it went back in time and wove the current lives with the past.
She was very believable and did a great job changing character.
The plight of the mother trying to keep her teenage daughter happy and safe and free of the mistakes she made when she was young.
I liked how the book toggled between the characters, allowing for simultaneous unravelling of the plot.
Yes, many unexpected twists and turns. Clever and cunning plot.
Riveting story about love, lies and the ultimate deceit...
I did not want it to end. I was a little surprised by the atypical Hollywood ending :)
Pour Your Heart Into It: How Starbucks Built a Company One Cup at a Time by Howard Schultz and Dori jones Yang
Nothing in particular. He did a good solid job
I think the points of the book with the most impact were when he got ousted from Apple and in the end when he became more pensive and introspective about his life, choices and perhaps mistakes. It was touching.
Walter Isaacson did a brilliant job of portraying Steve Jobs exactly how he was. It is hard not to get sucked into Jobs' genius and I really think Isaacson was able to retain his nuetrality and tell the "true" story of Jobs. Outstanding!!!
