4.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your pain, September 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A story of redeemed grief. Jessie's dad is a loving father and humble man who leverages his pain to become a political powerhouse to advocate for mandatory sentencing and notification laws for child predators.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure I can finish it..., August 24, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The text is full of misspellings, poor grammar usage, and awkward phrasing that make comprehension a bit of a chore for readers.

The author laments her lack of success as a writer within the first few pages, and my first thought was, "Perhaps it is because your writing is poor."

2.0 out of 5 stars poor writing, bad grammar, February 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I stopped reading this about 10 pages in. A good story is ruined for me when told through awkward sentences, fragments, punctuation errors, and bad grammar. Hire an editor and proofreader! Every author needs them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real person who follows Jesus, January 10, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
What a refreshing read. Kimberly Smith is a real human being who follows Jesus and isn't afraid to tell it like it is.

If you're wary of another autobiography of a superChristian that has never wrestled with God in the dirt, you should read this book. If you're tired of reading about people's tragedies and insurmountable difficulties that turn out all shiny-happy in the end after Jesus has been applied to the situation, because you know damn well from experience that complex, systemic evil abounds in the world and can't be easily defeated, you should read this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps true but full of proof-texting, December 30, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book attempts to deal with the problems that result from negative thinking and speech in the life of the believer and how to combat them.

The basic premise is that your beliefs, thoughts and speech, in part, create your reality. This is common sense. The author's attempt at putting this in a Biblical framework I thought was lacking.

The problem I had with this book is I really need to accept by faith that the author has done her homework and can be trusted. Many of her assertions are not supported by anything and are just stated as fact. The ones she supports are given partial, sometimes sloppily paraphrased "proof texts" that are given no Biblical context to show the verses support her claims.

I was able to walk away from reading this with a few nuggets or truth, but it would be too much work for me to look up every verse and try to discern what that verse is saying in its context, and then apply it to the author's assertions. I think that should be, for the most part, the author's job.

There are plenty of minor grammatical/editing issues, too, which for me detracts from the message.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great advice for the beginner, December 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book gives detailed instructions for the novice on how to ferment vegetables. It describes the fermentation process, the steps require to get the process going, and why each step is important to the process.

There is a bit of redundancy in the different chapters of the book. You will never forget that 1-3 t of salt per quart of water is required to make brine, and that any more salt will cause fermentation to "grind to a halt." This information is repeated at least 5 different times. But redundant info would be helpful for the novice who is skimming or Skipping chapters.

The recipes are diverse. I wish there was an attempt to describe the flavors of each fermented recipe to help me decide which ones to try.

The recipes don't specify what size container you need to ferment them in.

2.0 out of 5 stars starts out suspenseful, ends with sexualized gore, December 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Darling (Kindle Edition)
The story starts out relatively well-written, mysterious, and suspenseful. Until the last 25% of the book. It quickly descends into cheap, slightly pornographic gore. I was very disappointed and had to skim the last 10% of the book, which is filled with one unimaginative depraved image after another.

If you like zombie rapists and reading about homicidal children being butchered, this is the book for you. If not, don't waste your time.

4.0 out of 5 stars quick, easy, relatively healthy, December 8, 2013

I like most of the recipe ideas in this book. All are easily adaptable, simple and quick to make. Much healthier than a sandwich and chips or processed food.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just a List of Foods, September 18, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book may be a list of "superfoods," but the author provides little to no information about how or why these particular foods boost metabolic rate. There are no references to back any claims. Some food entries make no health claims at all. For example, under "avocados," it says that you shouldn't cook them and they taste better cold.

The book also contains contradictory information, such as claiming that each type of the following foods takes the longest to digest: high-fiber carbs, fats and proteins. Well, which is it?

I think the author found a list of healthy foods, got on the web and found 1-2 sentences posted somewhere about each type of food, and plugged them into his book. Voila. This hardly constitutes "research."

If this book is free and you want a list of nutrient-dense foods, it might be worth downloading. If you want information about the foods listed, you'll have to do your own research.
Based on the info in the book, don't think any of these foods speed up metabolism. There's nothing to support the author's claims.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly frank, April 5, 2013
I really liked what this book has to say. It is refreshingly candid about the ugliness and difficulty of parenting teens. No, my kids don't swear all the time or argue at every turn, but I'm glad to read a parenting book that acknowledges that these things do happen, that teens can be ugly and incredibly selfish/disrespectful, and that the world is not going to end because of it. I also agree that there is not a whole lot you can or need to do in these situations (I.e., "control your child") and that it is too late and counterproductive to micromanage a teenager.

As a Christian, I get tired of reading parenting books that assume Christian kids never use foul language, disrespect their parents, smoke pot, have sex. They are sinful human beings going through a crazy time and are perfectly capable of plenty of stupidity. This book acknowledges the seedier side of teen life, and I found it to be refreshing.
