Although this is not the most exciting book in the world, I really enjoyed it. It made me laugh and cry. Most of the book is light humor, with a touch of poignancy. I listened to this on 35 minute commute every day and looked forward to it each time I got in my car. I'm going to download the next in the series.
I love Jan Karon's books, especially the Mitford series. The characters have become like old friends. The sense of wit and charm are welcomed and sometimes surprising. This particular novel in the series is a little more "down" that I have come to expect. More worries, sadness, and troubles. I am coming near the end of the series and am going to have to choose a time when I'm not driving to listen to "A Light from Heaven" as I'm sure it will bring tears
I don't usually write reviews, but I just could not get away from this book! Great story, great reader. You really feel like you get to know the characters, but this one also had a great surprise ending. Loved it.
This is the second in the series and just as good as the first. Even those these books are really long, they keep you interested. This story has been my constant companion while doing housework, sewing, and taking long baths. Looking forward to the next in the series.
Coming from a Christian perspective, I found this book surprisingly good. It combines high fashion, the corporate workplace, and down - home values that prevail at the end. A good, light listen.
I am normally a big Stephen King fan and love his books. However, I could barely get past the first hour in this one. Something about a father coercing his 14 year old son to kill his mother is just too wrong for me.
Although I love Beth Moore, I think this book would be better in print. There is a lot of scripture included that is intended for prayer. I think it's the kind of thing you'd really want to have in your hands as you are praying.
OK, the title is a little corny, but the book is really good. Just finished listening to it over the last 2 days. Great murder story by Sandra Brown. There is some gore and one of the main characters has a despicable attitude that makes you just want to slap him. It's not really a "who-done-it" since you find out early on who it is, but it does keep you riveted and there are some surprises at the end.
This is a great overview of ADD written by a college kid with ADD. Just reading through this prompted me to take action and get seen for my own ADD issues.
