Disappointing read - I didn't get through even 1/2 the book. The various stories were not engaging, the characters were odd and not relatable. I really wanted this book to be great but it fell extremely short for me.
This was a good book! It had surprises in it that I did not anticipate - that always makes for a good book:) It was an easy read - great for a winter night infront of the fire or a beach read in the summer.
This book is a great book for people that like to figure out what makes people tick. The way the story is told gets you guessing, then tells you - in an ooohhhh, that's why she's like that - kinda way. I loved this book!
It took a while for me to get into this book - it was hard for me to follow at first. But once I got it I really enjoyed it! I grew to like Lillian and wanted to know what happened to her. I think what made it difficult to follow at first was that for every person(s) that had an impact on her life, the story told what happened to those people even after Lillian was no longer in their lives. This was an interesting twist and one I grew to really like.
Definately not what I thought it would be. This is a real story, not so much about micro-lending, but about how one person changed the world with micro lending. Yunus thought outside the box and did great things. Very thought provoking. Excellent book!
gut-renching, soul torturing, heart breaking...This book was so hard to read because it is from the 9 year old boys point of view. The unbelievable acts of humans is so disturbing, but it is our history.
This book had a lot of filler stuff I didn't understand. It was very long, and it seems to me that the same story could have been told - even better - with less filler.
I did still enjoy the overall story.
