I've read Siddhartha once, and listened twice. It's deep on many levels.
No favorite scene. The whole book is a joy.
Never read the print version. But I thought the audio was excellent.
I'm a big fan of Steven Pressfield's The War of Art. I put this up near that on for calming my nerves about my work.
The right attitude.
No, nothing extreme, just a feeling that I'm not alone in my worries and fears about my art. That I'm not crazy. ALL artists feel like I do, and that alone makes doing my work easier. My new mantra is "Embrace uncertainty."
It's the doing. It's the process. It's what we learn and become while making our creations that matter, not the end product.
No. It feels like it's not really well researched, or that the author used too few sources. It just didn't feel "authentic".
Some folks might, and obviously do, like this book. I just felt like I was hearing legends and folk tales instead of scholarship.
No. Rehashed stuff. Platitudes. Dull reading.
Sounds like a corporate motivational speaker writing a book.
Depends on the friend's sensibilities.
Talking about Bruce Willis. That was enlightening.
If I was Kevin's father-in-law I'd punch him in the mouth each time he crossed my threshold for talking about my daughter like that.
I'm a 50-year-old military veteran. I'm not much up on fluffy bunny stories. But I've heard of this book for most of my life, and after reading all the reviews I figured I'd take a chance and see what I got. WOW! What a great story! It's now one of my all-time favorite stories. I love the characters, the friendships, the struggles together. It's one of those books that lingers with you long after your finished.
The snare scene.
Get this: I listened to this book on the way to a friend's house. Shortly before arriving I finished it. When I pulled into the friend's driveway there sat their black Labrador Retriever with a dead rabbit hanging from its jaws.
I wasn't sure I would like this one but it was a Daily Deal so I took a chance. I loved it! Bronson does a great job of narration, and the story is action-packed and fast-paced. It kept me riveted.
Almost anything Faye was up to was exciting and funny.
I've not listened to other work of Bronson's but I will definitely seek him out.
Get this book. You'll enjoy it.
Charles Portis, yes. Donna Tartt, I'm not sure. She takes very long pauses between "He said" and "She said" It's distracting. Also the recording of this book isn't very good. I can hear Donna breathing and swallowing... It feels a bit "low budget", if you know what I mean.
My first western. Can't say.
Someone more experienced.
