1.0 out of 5 stars Know what you are getting…., October 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Reader beware. I was interested in the movie, so instead of seeing it... thought I would read the book first. Yes, talented writer, intriguing storyline.
But it is literally, filth. Wasn't ready for the graphic porn novel I was reading. So bad I deleted if off my Kindle..and I never have done that with a book before.
If I could give this book no stars, I would.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Iron I Have Ever Had, October 17, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I cannot say enough good things about this product. It is fantastic, and literally every time I use it (which is almost daily), I say, "I love this iron!" It really is the little things in life that can drive you crazy when they don't work well, day in and day out. I spent many years frustrated with irons (leaking, don't heat well, too light). Not the case with this iron. I would buy it again without hesitation. Worth every penny!

4.0 out of 5 stars Would buy again....., April 21, 2011
Decent ESL Conversation book, and is well set up. Good topics. LOVE the proverbs, idioms & quotations offered and the conversation starters. My only critique? I would give this book a 5 star plus rating if it had some creative activities offered, of which it has none (either for in-class use or for homework). The teacher will have to come up with these on their own.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing....., April 21, 2011
I am a ESL Conversation Teacher overseas (who has lived overseas for 11 years). Most of the topics are completely inappropriate, devoid of cultural/religious sensitivities, thus, I found myself rewriting most of the lessons. I had no idea I was buying an extremely agenda driven book (leading questions towards author's opinion, etc.). My students were really just not that interested in discussing at what age a woman should stop having biological children, or about a girl in Florida who wanted to divorce her parents. This is a very "western" book that does not work well at all overseas, and tends to offer negative stereotype of the US. I am disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars exceptional book!, January 13, 2011
This is one book that I recommend to everyone I know who wants to understand more about themselves, their neighbors, and culture (and even those who don't! ;-) Far from the boring textbook format that we often see with books on culture, this is well written, concise, insightful...and fun. You don't know how many times I hear from someone I recommend the book to, "If only I would have known this before, I would have reacted differently!" or, "I never heard this before!"

I am also using this book for my ESL classes as well where I teach overseas, and the students love it. You really can't go wrong with this book.

God on Mute: Engaging the Silence of Unanswered Prayer
God on Mute: Engaging the Silence of Unanswered Prayer
by Pete Greig
Edition: Hardcover
45 used & new from $1.85

5.0 out of 5 stars worth it....., March 20, 2010
I read...a lot, and usually recommend most books half-heartedly. This is just one...good...book. Love the way Greig takes us on a journey of Maudy Thursday through Easter Sunday. Very original and powerful concept. And Greig is not afraid to tackle the hard questions. A favorite quote: "What greater prize could there possibly be than to be ordinary again?" (pg47). You won't be disappointed with this read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Can See My Toes!, February 9, 2010
Was swayed to buy these socks by the 5-star ratings (should have headed the 2-star ratings which warned against holes). After only a few wearings, found holes in toes of both socks. Customer service no help. Standard line, "Thank you so much for shopping with us today" did nothing to help. Beware of a company that will not stand behind its product. I only gave this a 1-star because there was not a "0" star rating. Bad product, bad customer service.
