Was not sure what to expect with this book, and it turned out to be a fantastic read. So many fantastic tips on how to be more productive in order to enjoy more free time, but also so much more. Some information, especially about computers phones and technology in general, is a little outdated, given how fast those evolve, but the ideas are still incredibly helpful. I am so enthused and cannot wait to apply many of Mr. Ferriss’ tips and start living a more fulfilling life.

In 1985, Anthony Ray Hinton was arrested and charged with two counts of capital murder in Alabama. Stunned, confused, and only 29 years old, Hinton knew that it was a case of mistaken identity and believed that the truth would prove his innocence and ultimately set him free. But with an incompetent defense attorney and a different system of justice for a poor black man in the South, Hinton was sentenced to death by electrocution. He spent his first three years on Death Row at Holman State Prison in despairing silence.

Mr. Hinton is extraordinary. His outlook on life after his devastating injustice experience is a lesson to us all. His capacity to forgive those who hurt him so much is mind boggling, as so few of us would have the strength and heart to do so. Yet Mr. Hinton succeeds in proving to us that forgiveness is the right path, for so many reasons, the most compelling for me being to not give one more second of our life to those who wrong us. This book reminded me to live fully, to make the most of any situation, and to trust God. It also reminded me of the deep imperfection of our justice system, and of the consequences of this system in need of reform. There are many more lessons in this book, and i recommend it to everyone; it recounts a profoundly sad story, yet Mr. Hinton finds a way to fill us with hope thx to his wisdom and wonderful heart and mind, to lift our spirit and make us appreciate life, to find happiness. Mr. Hinton is extraordinary.

Et vous, quel est le truc le plus idiot que vous ayez fait de votre vie ? Au début, c'est à cause de son nom rigolo que Julie s'est intéressée à son nouveau voisin. Mais très vite, il y a eu tout le reste : son charme, son regard, et tout ce qu'il semble cacher... Parce qu'elle veut tout savoir de Ric, Julie va prendre des risques de plus en plus délirants.

J'ai ri aux éclats! Un livre très drôle mais aussi un regard sur le genre féminin très surprenant, parce qu'il est fin et juste, venant d'un écrivain masculin. La narration est de plus parfaite, avec des intonations qui tombent pile et contribuent à l'humour. "Le chat, si tu parles, je t'épile!..." J'ai dû m'asseoir et m'essuyer les larmes de rires plusieurs fois :)

Elsa est une enfant solitaire et sa seule amie est sa grand-mère. Mais un jour, la vieille dame meurt : la petite fille fera son deuil en allant transmettre des lettres que sa grand-mère avait écrites pour de nombreux destinataires : lettres d'excuses, de regret et d'amour. Elle comprend petit à petit que les contes qu'elle lui racontait s'inspiraient de personnages bien réels.

Quelle imagination, et quelle merveilleuse histoire d'amour pur et éternel... Ce roman m'a rappelée de vivre chaque minute en appréciant la vie que j'ai, et d'être pleine de gratitude pour avoir la chance d'aimer comme Hope et Josh. Bravo!
