The concept of her going a whole year & focussing on the many points of biblical womanhood & experiencing them first hand in serious commitment, but also honest conclusions of the experience.
Rachel was pretty much the only character.
I enjoyed her jewish corespondents input & the stories of the jewish customs that she decides to follow.
No. It got a little tedious in some parts and it needs a little more focus to follow her at times. I'd recommend a few chapters at a time to be able to take it all in.
I bought this book since I loved the movie, but I have to say it was a little deflating.
I'd recommend the movie, the actors really brought the book to life. The book just seemed more hum-drum.
It was fine, but a bit whiney at times.
Well yeah it already is..
Don't buy this book just because you liked the movie.
A better narration could have made this easier to listen to, and a more productive story line.
The first 5 chapters were practically the same information as the last book. Super annoying and super repetitive.
It's almost like the narrator doesn't even like Darcy (the main character) as she makes her as whiney as possible. Her inflections could be better for the other characters also.
Boredom and frustration.
Do not buy this book if you are interested in listening to anything more than incessant superficial complaining.
Yes definitely. I don't feel like I could take in all the information in one go! It gets dry at some points, but I feel that it would be important to still make the effort to pay attention.
The content and explanations are quite good.
Nope. But he seems to do a decent job.
Well other than you pretty much decide you probably should turn vegan..
I'd cut out a bunch of his random stories. Many of them were quite dull and appeared to have little significance.
Very possibly not. William Shatner appeared quite full of himself, and even though he was telling the stories, the way he talked about himself made him sound a bit self involved. He often felt the need to dispute horrible things people had said or felt against him, giving the impression that there was something causing it to begin with,
Maybe. The audio for this book would be loud one minute then become very very quiet, that I could not understand what was said even when the volume was up full blast. I have the feeling it was the way Shatner spoke, however you'd think someone producing this could have easily fixed the problem.
Up near the top for sure. The narrator is fantastic & the book has got a great mix of highs, lows, funny bits, sad bits and so on that make it really easy to keep listening.
I loved the stories behind the music. What was going on in their lives when they were doing which shows. Anthony Keidis very unconventional childhood is interesting, as is his continued functioning as a musician to such a high level, whilst leading such a dysfunctional long time drug interest!
Never, but this one was fantastic!
No idea, but I would love them to make a film!
I'm just not sure that it was written that well, or perhaps the abridged version made it seem that way. Perhaps a different reader may have made it more catching.
Perhaps not. I really had difficulty getting into this book.
His voice is very sexy but as a reader it was not very catching and had more the effect of a relaxation tape. I would end up just zoning right out.
Honestly i had a hard time remembering actually what went on in this book, since i pretty much fell asleep most times I listened to it.
Yes I would, but with a few warnings. I liked the journey part of the story. However I felt there was quite a bit of dysfunctional grieving, explicit references to sex, and a terrible story about killing a horse that I could not listen to.
I've not read any of her other books.
I enjoyed her stories of other hikers along the trail.
A few laughs here and there. Definitely cried! Was pretty traumatised by the horse story, I had to skip ahead.
I felt the book was typical of many teenagers that I know, over analytical, using big descriptive words about basic things to make themselves sound important. I did enjoy it in the end, but for large parts I felt disinterested & easily tuned out.
I think so.
Well I felt myself tuning out quite a bit, and was just keen to get it finished and out of the way rather than enjoying being involved in the book.
Probably not. The book was a bit all over the place. The guy Vinnie is obviously a great dude. I'd recommend this book for novices to health and fitness.
There was no real ending really, since there was no continuing story line. It was multiple little stories all tied in together.
He does some personal commentary that's not in the book. He seems to have a lot to say, and would probably be really good to talk to 1-1. But for the book style it can kind of be a bit off topic at times.
I could see it being a great TV reality series with Vinnie training a variety of people from complete novice to amateur athlete.
Yup! but I just love audio books better in general!
If you like Eat and Run you would probably really like Born to Run. It's kind of different though since Eat and Run is an autobiography, Born to Run is a number of autobiographical & biographical stories in one.
A bit harsh, took a bit of getting used to.
If you have 8 hours maybe
Great informative book for any runner interested in distance running.
