The list author says: "Well, last year was probably my dullest reading year! I didn't have too many books that blew me away, I also didn't read as much as I usually do. SO, this year I am going to have to just read more!! update: as of september I am getting a decent amount of reading in - yay!! read on....."
"Non-fiction story of a man who was in an accident, suffered major brain damage - he survived and weaved his way back into his former life. It was written by his wife. The story is interesting as I have not read this subject but the wife/author is nauseating!!!!! I could not wait to get her voice out of my head! good thing it was short!"
"This book was good, the author did an amazing job telling the story! The writing was wonderful! The characters Frank Lloyd Wright and his mistress Mamah were a bit pathetic and hard to love - the story was interesting though!"
"when I finished this book, I wasn't 100% sold! Sure it was a good read and it was interesting - but I wanted something more substantial or more of something!! I started on book 2 right away and once the characters came more to life and the stories got deeper - I WAS HOOKED!!"
"Once again I have come upon yet another book that I couldn't finish!! I gave it to 100 and there was just nothing that grabbed me. I need to start researching my picks better! I think I have way too much confidence to find happiness in this book - it was just bleh!"
"(audio)I always go back to Nicholas Sparks when I just want a nice, good story-telling! The Characters were not nearly as loveable as his other books. and this was highly predictable, but held my interest throughout!"
"The story was great...but it takes big effort on your part..the author doesn't do it for you. I made the mistake the first half of the book, assuming at any time the author was going to further develop the characters for me. Pay very close attention to develop them and root for them. I didn't really find that until the book was 2/3 done."
"Overall - just okay! how many times can the author write a scene with the nazi officer taking sexual advantage of the main character - it got so old afterwhile! no real substance and the ending is all way too predictable!"
