    Story
    "A fun read"
    What did you love best about Just Don't Fall?

    This is such a funny story considering it deals with cancer. Josh just was determined to have a uniform. . .regardless of circumstances or what life dealt him.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Josh - he is extremely funny and clever about coming up with some of the most outlandish ideas.


    What does Josh Sundquist bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Josh brought his full emotionally packed story--I don't think anyone else could have made this book as much fun as it was.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This was a book that was very fun to read--I laughed out loud at some of the events that happened in the story.

    "If you don't laugh and cry you weren't listening."
    If you could sum up Just Don't Fall in three words, what would they be?

    Beautiful, Difficult Life


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    One more thing, one more time. (1MT,1MT)


    Any additional comments?

    Found Josh through youtube and decided I really wanted to listen to the whole of his story. Josh is an amazingly open guy and his story has the feel of being told through whatever age he is at during that part. Good humor and a lot of richly recreated life moments. Some very deep stuff from cancer to learning how to deal with and overcome failure. I love that Josh doesn't sugar coat some of the things in his life because it gives the overall book a much better and realistic.. and therefore more meaningful, taste.

    Story
    "Just Don't Fall"

    This book seemed to be at first a Christian testimony of how an amputee triumphed over the odds and won a skiing award. Part one of the book was very well written; void of any offensive language or material. Part two was exactly the opposite. Vulgar language and explicit sex scenes are offensive to me therefore I chose not to complete this book. Although there were no descriptive sex scenes by the author in the book as far as I read, the casual reference to them by the author's companions was enough! Underneath it all I sensed an attempt for this character to find a place for himself in this world. I hope he accomplished that. Perhaps there is a sequel, which is more of my taste in reading material, about that accomplished end.
