I did not get bored. I backed it up if I thought I missed something. It moved quickly. Very interesting.
It's just an expose. It doesn't sound like the author is really slamming all of these companies it is exposing, it just feels like you are privy to being there at every private meeting among the money grabbers. They don't care about humanity, in my opinion. They care about money. It's a free country. They can do that. But this book has equipped me with some insight to see what they are doing, and not fall victim to it. It's eye opening. It will help me feed myself and my family more thoughtfully, not that I have ever been one to gorge myself with any of this fast food stuff, Fritos, Hot Pockets, etc., but it seems that even the stuff you think might not be so bad, is so bad. I've heard it, but it didn't register. Now I don't feel so stupid for falling into their grip. They have many scientists who have figured out the best way to "hook" the best of us. We all have free choice. This book is going to help me make better choices.
I might like this book better if I were reading it instead of listening to it. Seems very informative and I am interested in the subject but I just really couldn't get into the sound of the man's voice who was reading it.
I told my neighbor about this book and she was extremely interested in reading it so I have ordered the paperback for her to read.
Not for me.
I love dogs and I reluctantly listened to A Dog's Purpose. At first I didn't think I would like it but I really got in to it and have now started listening to a few dog books. That is why I purchased this one. I have given it a couple of hours and still am not really liking it. I'm gong to give a little more time.
Maybe the best.
This is a story about life. It changes just as life does. It's kind of like a "if I'd known then what I know now" sort of story. You grow up with this man.
This book is over 900 pages so it's not one you're likely to listen to all in one sitting However, this is one I had a hard time putting down. It made me late for work a few times as I'd sit in the car continuing to listen. Sometimes even kept it going as I'd be running down steps on my way in, allowing on-lookers to wonder if I was nuts.
I chose this book after reading the reviews. I'm so glad I did. This author is deep. I appreciate his kindness and love of humanity. I can still feel this book and wish it wasn't over. I may even listen again. I can see, smell, feel India. I have a more open mind towards so many things, people, cultures. "But for the grace of God, there go I", I feel. When I was finished with this book, I felt like we, the author and I, had been through a lot together. I felt like I could remember years ago when we were doing this or that and I had a feeling of "if I'd only known then what I know now". This is a story of life, with love, joy, grief, bad choices, boredom, hatred, forgiveness. It's a learning experience. The performance was spectacular. I can't say enough good about the reader. It does get a little syrupy now and then, but I think that is just because the author has so much soul. I love him! Somewhere in the last third of the book I lost some interest for a while, somewhere in Afghanistan. I felt like I'd want to fast forward and skip some of that stuff but then I'd hear something, get the answer to something I would have missed if I'd skipped. So I listened to every word. And now it's over and I miss it. What a book.
