YES Repetitiveness! I understand that Mother Teresa had her struggles, but they were often the same struggle. I think it's very human to struggle with the same things but at the same time, when I am reading, it is annoying to read the same thing as if you hadn't told me once already. This is really my biggest problem with this story. Also, there is a mix of letters and them kind of a commentary of Mother Teresa. I think her letters are way more interesting than speculation or the interference of another person writing in the middle.
I am not sure how to share the ending without giving spoilers so I am skipping this question.
The pace seemed maybe a bit slow at times, specially in between letters of Mother Teresa.
No, this is not movie material. This would be a slow paced film. I don't know why this would be asked because a film script does not have the same liberties that a novel has. This is fine as a book, not a movie.
This isn't a bad book. I was just expecting a bit more information of direct info from Mother Teresa. I found the author almost an interference unless it was information of where or why a letter was written.
A bit long winded. Kind of Tolkein like in the sense of immense details to get to one simple point. Despite this it was poetic and lovely to listen to.
Simply written explanation of the complex relationships with ourselves, others and God involving love, condemnation, fear, etc.
Easy listening, well written, and perfect explanation of Christ's conflict resolution. This definitely sticks to biblical principles and even addresses believer and non believer conflicts.
I'd heard variations of this info but it was nice the way it was organized. The narrator does a great job, the book has great info. The basic point is get back to organic veggies, good meats, nuts, some fruits and your body should normalize from avoiding processed, wheat laden foods.
The last two hours for me were the most informative on how to start this program.
I completely disagree with the idea of having affairs when married as long as you keep it quiet.
However, I do agree with the idea that there should be mystery with a woman with her man. The section on beauty is fantastic. I agree Americans want understanding and ruled ways of life, boxed up and easy to digest in a false happiness.
Also, the battle of the sexes and true feminism in America is a serious issue and is discussed in the book also.
Ironically some of these french ideas are very biblical (despite the book blaming protestant ideals being America's biggest problem but many protestant ideals weren't biblical either!)
Overall, it's a great book and the narrator is easy to listen to.
Keep up with your friends that matter most. Know when to let go and when friendships naturally seperate. Get out of yourself but also know when you need your privacy.
This is the basics of the book. The rest of the book are those things elongated.
Phil Cooke is very blunt and straight forward. I enjoy to the point narration and listened straight through. I can understand if someone leaves this book wanting more and I don't think it's the authors fault but rather because it leaves you with the desire to find your one big thing which no one else but you can answer.
This book successfully guides you in directions of various ways that you can discover what you're really good at, what's really in your skill sets, honestly evaluating what you do best. There were many questions he asks for you to answer that I never even thought about.
This book posed more questions for me at the end of it rather than any conclusion, but I believe it's a good thing. He asks what your one big thing is and only the listener can finish the book with their answer.
Ted Williams doesn't hold back when he's sharing about his life, good and bad. His raw honesty in his faith's ups and downs were refreshing. He describes his struggles on a base level that makes him very relatable even in situations I've never experienced. Down to earth and great narration.
This guys voice is so awesome. It's the perfect voice to tell his own story.
It's interesting to hear who he admires and his experiences growing up to now. If you're wanting a lot of case information I don't feel like a ton of info is here (it's definitely there just not lengthy.) I think that's the point though, to be about him and not the case.
My only complaint would be that he uses metaphors beautifully but way too often.
Overall it's informative and brings a lot to light on the abortion industry. You can tell he's slanted to pro life but I appreciate how he explains pro life and pro choice thinking processes because he was so pro choice before.
In the beginning it has a lot of medical jargon so I had to pray I could get through it haha but then the author started to talk about how he grew up and talked about his experience becoming a doctor and going through college. Then I felt like I got sucked into the book.
He later describes more medical things so I was a bit confused from time to time but he still explained personal and public events powerfully.
