The overall story is good, written with good intentions and an impressive self reflection but I feel like it could have done without so much bleeding heart liberal talking points.

I like her ability to pinpoint the things in her life she dislikes from her propensity to be greedy to her desire to save the world and try to change these things by example. Not necessarily preaching about peoples everyday lives in contrast to hers.

Story of self reflection and self discovery and her journey to remake herself and better herself in ways I think should be an example for most people.

She pinpoints many environmental issues, some I agree with but most i completely disagree with.
I certainly wasnt expecting a environmentalist story, and was mildly put off by it, but I'll admit she weaves it all together in way that doesnt come off as smug and condescending.

I would read it again.

What an incredibly well told story this is.
Took me a few tries to get interested and then i was hooked.
listened to whole book in 2 days, the story of Kaya was just heartbreaking with many triumphs and victories along the way. I was captivated by her character and rooted for her to the end.

This is a must read!

I enjoyed the story, shed alot of light on the mental stability of August and the demons she must have been battling.
My only criticism was that I thought he could have used more witnesses and possibly mental health experts.
Sad and unfortunate story.

Excellent book, very well written which captures the angst and musing of teenagers.
While it is a sad story I can hear myself and my friends in this story.
Your view of the world at that age is small compared to adulthood, you find yourself romanticizing the strangest things. The girls you had crushes on during that time were viewed as mystical creatures rather than human beings who most likely felt the same way you did about you or someone else.

Great book, brought back tons of memories from my youth..

Book was too slow for me at 15 and I must have skipped large portions of it because the book was so much better this time around, lots of stuff I dont remember from back then.
Outstanding book and I was bummed out that it ended.
The movie was good but it fell well short of the book!

I can see why this book has been known as one of the literary greats .
The narrator did an amazing job.

The story it'self is quite controversial, but very well writen, and parts of it were hard to listen to, but i guess that's part of the draw of this story.

I will listen to again at some point to try to find things I missed the first time.

I really enjoyed the insiders perspective to the Trump Campaign, great stories, I only wish there was more of them.

My only complaint about this audio book is that the narrator read the book with voices that made the President sound like a villain! Other than that it's a great book!

I think the author done a great job pin pointing what it means to be a man, but I think he uses too primitive of an example of how modern men should bond and experience the world around them.

Ancient men indeed did have to act a certain way to survive, he is right!
However I think the way of the Spartans and Romans does not apply today unless the shit hits the fan in a major way.

He done a great job explaining the basic instinct of men, but I think he fails to explain how men today can harness that primitive instinct to work for us today in the workforce and daily life.

Good book but quite depressing and pessimistic about the future of mankind!
