My Reviews

 
Book Club Recommended
Informative, Interesting, Insightful
Great Read

I thought this book was really great. It explains a lot about the science behind it, but so much more of the human aspect. I think it's wonderfully written. It definitely isn't a dry, science-y book that one could get bored reading. I was sucked in from the get go.

 
Slow, Boring, Insightful
Disappointing

I was pretty disappointed in this book. When you read a story, it's usually a glimpse into someone's life when a big event is happening (example: in James Patterson's Alex Cross books, it's some case he's working on), but I feel like this just let us look at a family's life where nothing was super interesting. I thought it was kind of boring and I think Patty is ridiculous (not in a good way). I liked a little bit of it when I was in the 300s page-range but seriously, how many people will actually read that far into it if they don't like it? I'm just a person who doesn't like to leave a book unfinished.

Our group chose this book because some members watch Oprah and saw this had been on her bookclub list. If this is representative of some of the books on her list, it won't be the first source I go to to find a book (though in all fairness I will admit that there have also been some great books on her list as well).

But hey, obviously a lot of other people enjoyed this book so to each her and his own.
