A very awe-inspiring, hair on the back of your neck story! If you are a Christian and have a belief in the afterlife, then this book is definitely for you. It really makes you take into account what your life is like right now and what the importance of people mean to you. Great book!
After reading this book it made me realize that I am a lot more "in touch" with my psychic side than I sometimes realize. John gives me a lot of inspiration and hope for the future, especially connecting with those that are with my physically and spiritually. I really loved this book imensely.
What can I say other than Nicholas Sparks is quite an author - I'm a sucker for romance and he sure knows what he's talking about. BUT - he seems to always have different endings (they're definitely not predicitable) and this book was no exception. GREAT BOOK!
Catherine Anderson definitely is not a "typical" romance novelist as I think of a novelist to be - a sappy, mushy love story. She brings in characters of unconventional means and turns it into an almost hopeless story filled with some pain and angst, and it ends up being a wonderful romantic story that's more believe than a Harlequin type of story. Loved this book! :p
BORN OF THE SUN is a fictionalized reality of the painful history the Namibian people have suffered at the hands of those who invaded their country and set out to crush them. Many of us in the liberation struggle in Africa are bound to see ourselves in this moving and compassionate story.
This was an ok read but I was disappointed because I didn't read the description of this book close enough. I thought it was more of an erotica book and it was not that, so it took me some time to plow through the book.
Very disturbing story, so much so that I couldn't finish it at certain points of the book because of the things that happened. Author was very honest in the information he provided, granted I'm not sure if anything was left out - but it was definitely well written I thought.
Never have I imagined such horrors of child abuse than this story tells about - it's beyond words what one human being did to another. It boggles my mind that this child survived at the hands of his mother and has gone on to become a motivational speaker - God sure took care of him, what an amazing person Dave Pelzer is. Very disturbing and sad book, but well written.
Nicholas Sparks never ceases to amaze me with his writing talents - he's a man for crying out loud and the stories that he puts on paper are as if he's an overly compassionate woman. I don't mean to sound sexist but not many men can write the way he does and with such compassion and conviction. What an AWESOME book this was - I thought I had the ending figured out, oh no - he totally had it changed than what I figured it out to be. Great book!
What a great book to read since I don't typically read murder/mystery books. The twists and turns in this book kept me wanting to read it constantly - of course I couldn't put it down the closer to the end that I got. Great book!
The more I read about John Edward, the more I can relate to him and know that he is the real deal and not someone out to make a quick buck. He sure has had his trials and tribulations - but he has come out on the "other side" just fine. I'm hoping to fine tune my abilities in the near future - a lot of what John has talked about in this book and previous one's, I can really relate to.
There aren't enough words to describe the utterly appalling feeling I got while reading about this poor little girl, she suffered so much and her outlook in her future is so tarnished. I read this so fast that I don't remember two days going by - I couldn't put it down. Cathy Glass is definitely a saint for all she went through with Jodie - phenomenally written and yet such a depressing story. There are so many sick people in this world, but the people in this story take the cake.
I still can't get over how well Nicholas Spark writes such detailed romance novels - he gets right down to the nitty gritty on a persons feelings. This was such a touching story and a very emotional one - the endings aren't what you think they might be in a romance novel, he ends them more like the movie 'Braveheart' in some respects. I just loved this book and was so moved at the end that I couldn't stop crying and did like the way he did end it, but would have rather had it a different way. Oh well - still a great book! :p
I loved this book! I could so relate to everything Allison said in here and it helped me to know that I'm not the only one with abilities. What a detailed gift she has and it's so cool to see how many lives she has touched. Great book - quick read too.
Another great book in the "Strip" series - this one was really similar to the Stephanie Plum series; there is even a character named Lulu in it! I really like this series and thought this book was better than the first - on to the next one! Great book!
