Such an amazing autobiography of an icon. And to be read so well by her daughter made it even more special.

Excellent - required reading IMHO

Loved this book. Love the sarcastic tone mixed with hard facts. Should be required reading not just for schools but for everyone. Narrator was a great fit with the tone of the book.

Loved both the content and how it was delivered, as well as the lessons I was able to apply to my own life. A couple of the stories were pretty “out there” but I respect them as his own experiences and beliefs. As with anything, take what works for you, and leave the rest.

I found that although the middle book in the series wasn’t as compelling, this third book was excellent. Great action and story.

Engaging

Very engaging short story. Any reviews about it being “too short” don’t seem to comprehend the concept of a short story. It’s a glimpse and very well done.

Peaceful listening

Thich Nhat Hanh shares so much wisdom in his books and this is no different. It's a peaceful listen, with so many nuggets to think about and apply in my life. It's not my favourite of his books, but certainly added value to my life.

Definitely worth a listen

I read some reviews before I started this book, so I knew it would have a bias toward living with alcoholics, and a strong Christian theme. And so, with those grains of salt in hand, I ventured forth. The best thing about this book is all the self-identifying examples and language. I had never thought of myself as codependent, as I was very independent my whole life. For any of you who don't think you are codependent, but tend to care for others, are in a healing profession, or feel unappreciated, i highly recommend reading this book. You might get a glimpse of yourself. Now that I've read the book, I'm hearing friends and strangers use language that indicates codependency all the time. I'm more aware of it now. That doesn't mean they are suffering and need to seek help or anything. I just think many of us have some of these tendencies, and being aware of them allows us to grow and change.
What I did not appreciate about the book was the aforementioned focus on alcoholism and addiction. I understand that the author is only sharing her experience, and so she should, but it is truly heavily biased toward this particular type of codependent relationship, the spouse of an alcoholic. There was an entire chapter on the 12 step process which was entirely unnecessary in my opinion - that can be found in so many other books. But was easy enough to skip. Overall, it is considered an excellent resource for codependency because it was one of the first to put it all together, and I'm glad it was written. I'm glad I read it. Just don't expect much more than self-awareness from reading it. That in itself is already a huge gain.

Excellent

Fantastic follow up to Hawkmaiden. Such an enjoyable ride. The concept of the thoughtful knife was so cool. The narrator is amazing.

Wow. Lived up to the hype.

Well noted as a must-read classic, Kindred did not disappoint. Just incredible. Entirely relevant in today’s world.
