A book on the redemptive power of repentance. This book dives into topics about forgiving other and finding forgiveness for yourself. The book is broken up into topics and refers a lot to scriptural texts. If you’re trying to find peace and joy in your life this is a good book to pick up.
If you are a Robert Heinlein fan then you will get that this book is true to his form. It ends unexpectedly almost like it wanted it to be more and yet it wasn’t. Low on my recommend list just because it ended abruptly and I am not sure how the ending fits with any of the rest of the book. But if you are a true fan, go ahead. It is mostly entertaining.
I enjoyed the background and insights to animals and zoos. That has nothing to do with the shipwreck portion. I love the two viewpoints of the same experience, leaving it to the reader what really happened. The story moves well and keeps you turn the pages. This is a story you will not regret reading.
This was a fantastic little book. If you are looking for a way to better your perspective and live in the moment it is a must read. If you are wanting to better understand meditation, it is a must read. If you are struggling with life, it is still a must read.
This is a very short read that contains a lot of perspective on us spiritually as it relates to us physically. Written by a heart surgeon prophet it will leave you with pleasant thoughts.
This is the third book in the Hero’s Guide books. If you’ve not read any of them, pick one up. They are more middle grade in content. You get the charming princes and princesses from all the stories. The characters are fun to follow and the pacing is good. If you know someone who enjoys a good adventure story, this would be one I would recommend.
This was a good book written about personal revaluation. If you are struggling this is an excellent book to give you some direction in life. If you wonder how the Lord influences your life give this a read and ponder on ways you could enhance your relationship to him.
If you want the normal James Patterson, then don’t read this. The writing was not as bad as I have seen other reviewers state. This IS NOT a thriller. This is a dystopian Sci-Fi. You’ve been warned. Given that there were a lot of predictable parts in the plot and had incestial overtones, the book was a 2.5 star read and I think you could skip it. All that said if you do read it, it has some Bladerunner tones with a Holocaust theme.
This was a biography of the President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The writing was done in episodes detailing specific topics to tell you more about the man behind the office. If you want to know more about a revolutionary heart surgeon, who became a prophet this is a fabulous text. I was moved by several of the stories and would highly recommend this book.
If you are an old school Scooby Doo fan this is a twist on that. Even to the point of trying to make the characters feel then. Albeit there is a considerable amount of cussing. I wanted to enjoy this book and did not hate it. But the thing that made Scooby Doo so amazing is that they could show you behind the curtain that all of it could be explained. This book just cops out to the supernatural. All in all I thought this book/ idea could have gone much further than the author took it.
