    Critically acclaimed author Keith Lee Morris—who has drawn favorable comparisons to Richard Russo and Richard Ford—delivers a stunning collection of stories. Through these tales of deep humanity, the flaws and strengths of young men are explored with remarkable clarity.

    What did you like best about Call It What You Want? What did you like least?

    The short stories in the collection are exceptionally well-matched to the gifted narrators. Each story is quite good on its own. As a collection, the whole is very powerful.

    That said, there didn't seem to be a "theme" or oganizing principal for the stories nor was it immediately apparent that they were even by the same author.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    As I noted above, this is a collection of short stories rather than "a" story. I might have enjoyed more if there were a more obvious theme.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrators sound perfectly matched to the stories they tell -which are typically narrated in a first-person. The sense they convey is that they are separate people - each sharing their own truth.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Because this is a collection of unrelated short stories, not sure how it could be converted to a movie.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there were more available from same author, I would definitely use another "credit."

    Best-selling author and motivational powerhouse Dr. Judith Sills shows how to leap walls and push past boundaries so we can move ahead and live life fully.

    Thomas says: "Good Title - content doesn't deliver"
    "Witty, Wise and Well-Spoken"
    Overall

    While nothing in this book may be startling, the author does a very good job of presenting her material and illustrating her ideas with the real-life experiences of patients from her practice. The audiobook is presented by the author, who has a tremendous voice and a real flare for presenting her mateiral. I've read the book and listened to the audiobook. I prefer the latter and think this audiobook has something to offer everyone who feels "stuck" or who wishes to change something in his or her life. One of the better self-help titles I've read or listened to!
