A tale of survival and dignity, of small miracles and big surprises, Honor Thyself creates an unforgettable portrait of a public figure whose hopes, fears, and heartbreaks are as real as our own. Her courageous journey inspires us all.
I just wish you knew what happened in the future. It was a cliff hanger. Maybe a sequel will come out.

Would you listen to Honor Thyself again? Why?
It is a book that you will remember for you ever, it keeps on the edge all the time on the Edge waiting to see what is going to happen
Any additional comments?
A great book
A story of a woman who lost her memory and fought her way back to the she life and love she had before the accident
Is there anything you would change about this book?
I would have made the story line more complicated. It was very predictable.
What do you think your next listen will be?
A good spy mystery.
What about Kyf Brewer’s performance did you like?
He did a good job, but would have preferred a female's voice for the female parts.
Any additional comments?
Honor Thyself is 9.5 hours of listening, read by Kyf Brewer.<br/><br/>Repeating myself a bit with other Danielle Steel book reviews …. but if you’re a fan, you’ll understand from where I speak :-). Danielle Steel is one of the most prolific writers in America today. As a reader, you either love her or hate her, there really is no in-between, and she has legions of fans. If you are ever in the mood for sweet romance, meaning a teenaged girl can read the book, pick up a Danielle Steel novel. It’s easy to become absorbed, the stories are not gray-matter growth material; they aren’t intended to be. Danielle Steel is a die-hard romantic, and directs her talents to that end, pretty much exclusively.<br/><br/>Most stories involve a strong female lead, as does Honor Thyself. The lead surrounds herself with unique, and sometimes quirky, characters and the trials and tribulations of each traverse the pages. A typical, Danielle Steelesque, satisfying conclusion. The books often speak to personal familial relationships and issues, as does Honor Thyself.<br/><br/>I’m pretty simple when it comes to critique of a narrator. If I don’t have to re-wind to determine who-is-talking-to-who, I’m good. Ergo, Brewer does a nice reading, a decent production.<br/><br/>Did I say ‘boy gets girl’? Pretty much! Beach reading paradise? Sorry if my review is redundant, similar to other Danielle Steel books. But, hey … the books are a bit redundant, too. Enjoy … if you like Danielle Steel beach reads.
No plot. Unless u find 20 chapters waiting for something to happen interesting. Just a lot of treble.
Danielle's book was great. First I heard on audio & the audio was awesome
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
NOTHING! I was very disappointed
What was most disappointing about Danielle Steel’s story?
How the character kept repeating from one chapter to the next.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kyf Brewer?
Anyone, all the characters sounded the same except for the French man
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
No very disappointed
I enjoy Danielle Steel's novels as a diversion from hectic living and an easy read. Honor Thyself is minimally intriguing and even more predictable than her other novels. I was disappointed but listened to the entire book hoping the plot would thicken,but alas, it did not.
I thought this was the worst Danielle Steel book yet. It was totally predictable and the story line was incredibly boring.

I thoroughly enjoyed every word of this book, Kyf Brewer was an excellent narrator.
the storyline was exciting in parts and also emotional but a current topic.
I listen to all of Danielle Steel's novels so I am used to the formula.
This story is one of her average plots. It is slow, comfortable, and doesn't really go anywhere.
Regular fans will Know that there is usually a crisis point midway, and a couple of possible outcomes.
Honor Thyself is not one of these.
The central character has a traumatic and life-threatening brain injury and yet soon bounces back, with ease. It's laughable but it's Danielle!
She has written far better novels than this one but it did the trick and took me away from reality for a few hours.
The Excellent narrator helped.
