Review:I love Anna and based on her tweets alone I expected her book to be hilarious. Honestly, it was kind of boring. I thought the funniest part was the discussion questions she created at the end. It seems like a lot of people liked it though so maybe it's just me! It also might have been better as an audiobook, so maybe try that. Read more
Review:I'm getting really tired of getting suckered into buying titles based on reviews by people who claim the book is "too funny", "hilarious", etc. I read the first 23 pages of this book expecting to laugh several times, but I didn't even smile once. Obviously everyone's taste in humor is different, but to go from "hilarious" to not even cracking a smile is a bit much. The author's very short chapters - moving very quickly from getting divorced from her first husband, to how she and her 2nd husba... Read more
Review:My sons love Silverstein. His books are pretty much what they want to hear at bedtime. I think Shel Silverstein (from an adult's perspective) was a very multi-dimensional, interesting, intellectual, creative and talented man. He's a bit edgier than "Dr Suess" in the sense that some of his poems don't have very happy endings - but in our case, his books have stimulated our son's minds to think outside of the box. Read more
Review:- There was a lot of set-up for a story that never developed.
This was my 1st K.V. book.
I usually read/scan reviewers; if a mix of both genders is represented, I find a better chance of enjoying the book. (And, it eliminates the 'fluff'.)
MARS VS VENUS -Interestingly, there were mainly male reviewers & the majority of these gave the book high marks. Of the few women represented, most seemed to agree with me...or, I with them.
Since the book is void of car chases,... Read more
Review:Maybe my expectations were to high but I felt the book wasn't that good. The writing seems to drag on. The almost 300 page book seems to cover about what Adams would have covered in 50 pages. If you feel you need to read it go ahead, just do not expect much. Read more
Review:This book was beautifully written. It touches on the human soul. It gives a better understanding of some of the things we have not yet considered.
The life in the day of those who care for us in our times of grief and need.
I enjoyed this book very much and look forward to more writings by Caleb Wilde. Bravo! Read more
Review:I bought this book for my boyfriend, a medical student at SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, NY. Although I am not a medical student, I heard that this book is a must-read for men going to be doctors or are doctors. The book is supposed to give doctors a feeling of, "Yes, that is exactly how it all works" (in reference to the social/emotional/sexual interactions of being a doctor). Its not very long but it offers a lot and is cheap. I plan on reading it too! Read more
Review:When I started reading The Ticket, I thought it would be an enjoyable tale. It starts off with Allie, recently divorced, having a tough time. She meets Pete by chance. The story opens up into a funny romantic comedy, with both characters growing as the pages turn. I won't spoil the plot, suffice to say that lots of stuff gets thrown into the mix.
Allie is a great character. Forty-ish, blond, good looking and feisty. The author brings her to life effortlessly, giving her license to have fu... Read more
