    "Another book from Iyanla that taught me so much"
    What did you love best about Peace from Broken Pieces?

    I loved that not only was this the story of her own life lessons but that it was imbedded with spiritual wisdom and practical life advice that I can apply to my own life's journey. I never tire of her teachings and appreciate learning some of her history to how she became such a powerful and wise woman.


    Which character – as performed by Iyanla Vanzant – was your favorite?

    I love that she narrates her own books - you can feel that every word she speaks is important.

    Story
    "Very engaging"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Peace from Broken Pieces to be better than the print version?

    Yes, especially because its autobiographical and the author tells her story in her own voice - she does a really good job. Typically I don't like when an author reads his/her own book, but in this case its really well done.


    What other book might you compare Peace from Broken Pieces to and why?

    Can't immediately think of one...


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

    I have all her books in print but got turned off of her when I could not find alignment with advice she offered to the public and reports about her life that leaked to the media. Now I understand and really appreciate her. It brings to the fore something I have always told myself, "watch the message and not the messenger." In this case, anyway, the messenger has been rehabilitated making the book an interesting and engaging read. Iyanla again has my attention.


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

    Rising triumphant to the foot of a new mountain.

    "Educational and spiritual!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to a friend. I like Iyanla Vanzanant. There are a few points in the book where I feel Iyanla is a bit repetitive but nonetheless, it is overall a very good book. It's a very good life lessons for women to learn from. Woman can learn from their past so as to not repeat the lessons that hurt and by learning from their past they can save themselves pain in the future. Women may also be able to save their children from pain as well by teaching their children these lessons as well.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Iyanla Vanzanant.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were so many scenes in the book. But I think the death of Iyanla's daughter. That was such a poignant scene and I think that was when her transition first started.


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

    "The lessons women learn"

    Story
    "Well intentioned but too long and drawn out"
    Would you try another book from Iyanla Vanzant and/or Iyanla Vanzant?

    Of course! I love her.... but I wasn't expected this book to be an autobiography/memoir. It seems as though this book was a healing process for her and I can totally relate to that however, the tag line says: How to get through what your are going through - therefore, I was expecting more ADVISE and less detail by minor detail of her story of abuse.

    Had the title of the book or tag line stated "Memoir" - It would have been better and I would have been more prepared. Because I believe this was another healing project for her, I also believe that is why the book is 11 hours long.

    It's still a great book....it just caught me off guard is all.


    What aspect of Iyanla Vanzant’s performance would you have changed?

    I would have changed the detail by detail by detail by detail!!!! There are much better ways to describe an experience in a much shorter way and still convey the same message.

    If it were mystery, fiction or true life story....extreme detail would certainly be understood. However, this is a self-help book that simply uses some of her life's experiences to help the point.....so the life story part should be much shorter and to the point.

    I hate to say it but that simply makes it drag for me. ~~sorry~~


    Do you think Peace from Broken Pieces needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    NO!


    Any additional comments?

    It began to lose me in the first chapter! As I was ready and anticipating MUCH NEEDED positive advice.....I almost forgot I was listening to a self-help book because it go straight into her childhood with no references back to how to deal with something....anything...???
