Woods-is impossible not to love
the meet cute
made me laugh and cry
I recommend this book to anyone who is serious about living a life that reflects who they truly are
Hum, there is nothing quite like it. Other business books are not as good because Essentialism is really a practice that the individual develops in order to live a more authentic life.
Come one, y'all know there are no characters in this book. But Greg was a solid narrator.
I will apply the "less but better" mantra to my work and personal life.
This book is great for me because It really is about how to achieve the biggest bang for your efforts by finding the truly valuable things and focusing on them. The idea that 90+ percent of our opportunities, information, interactions are noise, are unimportant, are time wasters is really revolutionary in a world where so many of us are trying to figure out how to manage the deluge of nonsense (without first recognizing it as nonsense). Having this new perspective provides much needed clarity of purpose that should be valuable to any reader.
Probably not. I love Justine Eyre as a narrator.
A Calculated Life
She is pretty awesome. Very passionate voice. It adds dimension to the characters
Nope. Unless some awesome actors were in it.
The first novel in this series was a refreshing take on romance. But this story is based on a misunderstanding taken to the extreme. I also wondered why there is no mention of the heroin's family and why she didn't lean on them for support during rough times. The heroin is way to fragile for my taste. Even Cinderella didn't play the victim.
I haven't read the print edition
I love the imperfect, determined and complicated protagonist. Loved that there are no real antiheroes-just complex people.
She can deliver a joke well, and I like how she choses to emphases words in a way that adds new meaning to sentences. She is great at capturing angst especially in children's voices.
Made me laugh and grin. Twisted my stomach into knots at times too.
One of my favorite books by this author. I loved the treatment of the African American characters. But more than that, I loved the story of revenge, forgiveness and redemption. Also, it was funny and the story had many unexpected surprises. Almost every character had tremendous development.
The story was too wordy, repetitive, and didn't really have a plot. No real drama here. Shallow main character who simply isn't bright enough to be a doctor. The banter wasn't funny, the characters aren't really developed. I don't know why anyone would be interested in dating the doctor lady, given that she was a raging b*tch at the beginning of the book. She didn't bring much to the relationship and boyfriend did all the heavy lifting.
She is just not that good. She reads too slowly and doesn't do men well. She may have been more interesting if the story was more compelling.
Almost all of them.
I have no idea why this book had 4 stars. It was a painful listen. I have to power through it just to prove to myself that I have indeed predicted the ending.
don't know...i don't read books anymore, apparently...i have 81 books in my audible library, and its only been 5 months. I don't have the print version...
When Nick told Maggie she was in love with him, Loved how he saw right through her.
Nick-he was awesome,
Made me smile like a fool,,,
I read this series out of order, and saved this one for last, because I didn't like Maggie in the other books...particularly the first one. I love Maggie in this book. I loved how Nick saw right through her, and refused to indulge her in nonsense. Loved how she learned being alpha meant more than just having her way. Leadership and bullying are not the same thing. I feel like her character really developed in this book.
How it completely upended the formula for for romance novels, smacked you in the face with emotional conflict.
no such book exists
hum, no favorites
the part when she came back home from the day at the movies...i knew he loved her then
this is a great book. Justine Eyre is awesome. I loved the location, the characters, the emotion, the story...the conflict that is family/marriage
Absolutely. This was very clever and unpredictable, the narrator was awesome.
Dean, I enjoyed is cleaver and unexpected remarks
Dean's reply to the portrait Blue did of him.
Excellent plot development, superior character development, delightful dialog. Even the antiheroes are charming, in a grumpy sort of way.
This story could have been much better if the main characters weren't lying to each other out of fear and the supporting characters were more interesting. This story reads like it was written by a high school student trying to be deep.
Shallow characters, a plot driven by petty lies and Jersey Shore type drama. The story was way too long for such a simple mundane plot.
Jason was great Elizabeth Louise was annoying and she reads tooooo slow
Ugh, the stripper ex girlfriend
This story had potential but the characters were both so very insecure. I don't think people get tattoos to cover up their insecurities or pain. There was no wit, banter, or anything particularly smart about this story. It lacks depth, intrigue, and surprise but it was full of petty drama and male showmanship.
Lacey, she is so funny.
Among the best, Amanda is awesome
Lefty Monroe - He looks like Huge Jackman, who else would I want to have dinner with?
This is a fun story. The main character does a lot of growing, the antiheroes are a bit one note, but they serve their purpose. The supporting characters are funny and interesting. Nice change of pace for a romance.
I think the female narrator ruined it for me, but the story took forever to develop and it wasn't really interesting
The plot was really, um, unexciting. Got better near the end Sophie finally smartened up.
Drop the female narrator, or have her be less whiny. The male narrator was really great, he should have done the whole book. There aren't very many chapters with the male narrator.
I think the female narrator has a nice voice, it is just a bit...grating....it makes the protagonist sound insecure and flightily.
I hope not.
I really didn't like Sophie. I feel like she took no responsibility for her life. She accidentally got preggers, accidentally leaves her child with a druggie, accidentally ends up in a non relationship with a man she has loved for years, and the day she leaves him, she accidentally bumps into a neighbor how happens to have a spare apartment, and then, then, she happens upon a job...
I liked her ex-stripper college graduate friend much better than Sophie's ungrateful, stuck-up, drama queen self.
