Overall, I think this is a good program. I understand the need to repeat the phrases. However, there is often too much time spent on the information from the previous lesson. Good instructor, clear articulation.
Good technical thriller. I believe this book had the right amount of technical jargon and explanation. Pretty good. I am not sure what I was looking for with this book - but not bad.
For narration -- almost perfect French annunciation. Almost comical Russian accent -- especially female Russian accent (narrator is a male.)
Not sure what was so magical about this book.
I felt very depressed reading this book. I too have grieved like the author. However, not sure if she was sharing her grieving process, or expressing how wonderful her life was and their elaborate lifestyle.
I was not impressed.
In this book of short stories - I liked all of the stories except for the last one.
One of my favorite reads this year.
Not really a fan. I cannot pinpoint why I was not really getting into this book, but it may have been the narrator. Plus, I don't understand the "vanity" part of the title.
It seems like the characters could be your neighbor or your friend. I liked this book for something that was easy and not complicated. Light reading for the summer, but would be good to curl up by a fire in the winter. There are more books in the Elm Creek Quilt series, and I will pick up another one or two to relax with in the future.
I enjoyed Simon's autobiography - but I also enjoyed his short story. I love his imagination and creative flair, but he is down to earth and funny. Didn't realize that this was abridged version - so somewhat disappointed by that.
When you have a stressful job and just want a book to relax to - then this would be a good book for you. Yes, it is a children's book. However, it is enjoyable, and funny, and has some very interesting characters. It is not too complicated, it helps to zone out after work in the car on the way home. Some great quotes too.
After reading YA and other items, this was the perfect "adult" book to get me back into more grown-up themes. The book was funny but truthful at the same time.
I would describe this book as "old-fashioned." It was okay, and pleasant to read, but not griping. It made me smile in a couple of spots, and I think the narrator did a good job.
I liked this book -- may be closer to 3.5 stars. I think the author did a good job capturing the feelings of teenagers. However, I think I am burnt out on YA books - and need something more adult to read. Good book - would recommend.
