Ooohhh- a Demi Moore book.... love her. But wait where has she been for the last so many years. Thought I was getting your basic autobiography of Hollywood lifestyles and movie sets. Although there was a little look Into her career - it wasn’t the usual tabloid stuff. More the reasons behind roles etc. Demi Moore shares the most intimate aspects of her life - who she was, who she thought she was , who she thought she was supposed to be. Totally recommend this book to anyone who loved
Her back in the 80s movies, loved her image or who is just curious about “where did she go”. Thought I had followed her career but obviously not -learned so much more about the person she is and have a greater respect
For her than I ever had. She narrates it perfectly

Pretty good - unsure of ending

Enjoyed the book. Narration was good. Story was good - enjoyed . Not sure what I was expecting for an ending ... was somewhat surprised by the way it ended. Worth listening to- would recommend

After reading a handmaids tail numerous times over the last few decades I was very interested in this latest book. I feel I can’t give it 5 stars as the last hour or so of listening to it in audiobook was hard to follow. I repeated parts several times to make sure I was clearly paying attention. I enjoyed the book up until the last parts at which time I have been thrown off - do I simply not understand the ending? Did I expect more? Was this just a twist that I didn’t see coming? Having finished it I am a little
Disappointed. I spend many Hours with this book and then got to this ending. Perhaps I’ll give it some time and return to it again. I hate to feel let down but I just don’t get it

Is this a university thesis?

Looking to get some info on the history of voodoo and thought this might be the answer. I truly attempted to listen to it in its entirety but
Failed. Although a thorough insight into voodoo and race and gender with historical references. That’s about all this book seems to be. It focuses mostly on voodoo and its crossing of socio-economic groups. If you are looking for anything that talks about the root of voodoo and more practical implications of it this is not the book for you. A lot of work went into the research for this book but it honestly reads (or sounds in the care of audible) as a university thesis.

A surprisingly interesting and enjoyable book... not heavy

Wasnt sure if this wAs going to be textbook like or something from left over hippies.... it was neither. It was An interesting discussion in the death practices of other cultures as
Seen through the eyes of someone in the North American funeral business. It was enjoyable ... not scientific not religious but simply enjoyable. It makes one think and question why death is seen as something scary that we don’t want to be involved with. The practices of those described make total sense. The author reads the book on audible and her voice is soothing. Yes - soothing! That’s what this book was - a soothing glimpse into other cultures and how they deal with death highly recommend - content is not heavy

Wow! A must read!

Growing up in Canada I watched Mr Dressup and not much Mr Rogers. I got this on audible and have recommend to everyone!!! I have a new appreciation for what Fred Rogers represents and what he has contributed to our world. To sum it up - he’s an onion. Every time you think you understand you find out there’s another layer to what he did. The way that he thought everything through down to the very last detail is simply amazing. This book was a breath of fresh air and had made me into a fan- if not of he show itself, definable the man behind it all. I’ve tried to tell others about aspects of his life and I have done it no justice. I truly believe everyone should read (or listen) to this book. The choice of narrator was perfect. A movie of his life is due out in the future and I really hope it does him the justice he deserves. Fred Rogers was a true genius and should be an inspiration for all.

Not any new information. Pretty much a collection of bits and pieces of previously shared tips on healthy living. Was well presented though and was a very easy listen.

So the book started off saying that we’ve all been bombarded with what we know we should do to be happy. And that this book wasn’t going to do that. Well I tried - perhaps I didn’t give it long enough. It talked about journaling and gave up to 10 different things I was to make note of .... to me this book just did what it said it wasn’t going to do.

Not a boring self help book

The narrator had a nice easy to listen to voice. The book was not a boring self help book on steps to a better life. Enjoyed the story of how the author made some small changes to
Her own life. It’s a book about her everyday life and what you take away from it is an individual experience. No steps to follow or things to do - presented is a much more laid back manner which I enjoyed

Would be better as a physical book

I had high hopes for this book. I do believe that in this case the physical book in your hand would have been better. It is informative and you don’t need to listen to chapters in order. However, that being the case it is difficult to go back and reference something from another chapter. This should be treated as more of a text book/ reference book not as easy listening
