Over Top Quickly

Molly Burke does an amazing job narrating her life story thus far. Three hours was not enough time & I hope she makes another book in the future. Thank you Molly for sharing your incredible story. We couldn't be more different but I really connected with this book. Love, from a fellow Canadian.

Incredible and so genuine

I recently started following Molly on YouTube and as cliche as she my say it is. She is so inspiring. I too have cronic disease that impacts my life, in very different ways than Molly. I have always tried to make the best of it. Making jokes about it and being optimistic, but there have of course been difficult times as well. Hearing Molly talk genuinely about it, the bad and the good, I almost felt like she was talking about my life. I felt so connected with her I felt like she was a friend talking to me. I love her optimism about her struggles and how genuine she was talking about her life. Thank you Molly, I have hard days with my diseases, and you inspire me to continue to be optimistic.

Enjoyable Read!

This book is an interesting story most people wouldn't otherwise know. Especially interesting if you're familiar with Molly's YouTube channel, but enjoyable regardless. I especially liked her enthusiasm reading, her top ten audiobook recommendations at the end, and her chapter on her entrepreneurship because I found it relatable. p.s. I wish all authors included book recommendations at the end their books! Love from Ontario, Canada 🇨🇦

Amazing! Love Jasmine T ❤

Thought provoking, brutally honest and educational in a fun way, Molly says the facts without searching for pity and makes you more aware of bias or issues surrounding her disability without bore, truely an insightful memoir that can help anyone. TL;DR Molly is inspirational, fun and her story can help anyone ❤ Must Read (also I am on my husband's account my name is Jasmine)

Authentic, heart-wrenching, infinitely hopeful

I’m a pretty masculine guy, I ride motorcycles, drive a big truck, shoot guns, etc. I rarely cry. This book had me ugly crying at one point. And welling up with tears as several others. It’s one of the most real, authentic books I’ve read in a long time. Absolutely worth it.

Very Inspirational

I totally recommend this book! It is such a great book! I feel that more people need to spread the word on breaking stereotypes and learn how to respect people that are different. The world is full of diversity and people need to realize that and respect it. It’s reality. Not only am I a huge fan of Molly but I love her story! I too, was bullied and I think people need to learn to be kind, and not put a target on someone’s back. I feel all bullies out there (you know who you are) need to seek help and not take it out on ‘easy targets’. The way Molly talks about her journey in life so far, is so mature and refreshing. It’s refreshing because, a majority of people look at things negativity and more people need to think of the glass half full! I purchased the book the day it came out! I love it so much!❤️ -Emma. 12 years old

I’m visually impaired

I’m visually impaired and I found a lot of similarities in myself and Molly’s stories. It made me feel very empowered to follow my dream to do more public speaking. Thank you Molly. Thank you for inspiring me and being an advocate for our community

3 books with varied results

This book is really 3 books, which is weird to say about something so short - Youtube career trajectory 2/5 stars: this is like hearing a film star talk about their rise to fame over decades, honing their craft, the trials and tribulations, the ups and downs... only replace all of that with how many followers your youtube channel has. - Motivational speaking: 3/5 stars: your reaction to this area will depend on how you feel about positive but fairly generic motivational speaking and affirmations. - Personal memoir: 5/5 stars. This was the most interesting parts and if you get the audiobook it should be for this. Her life story and experiences are interesting and well-told -- both the parts specific to be being blind and the parts which have nothing to do with blindness. I'd love to have heard more about her as a person.

Loved it so much!

I'm so glad Molly read her book, first of all. I've been a follower for a while now and learned more than I knew previously through this book. It sort of fits many of her different videos into the story of her life in a way that the videos don't because they are just that, videos added at all different times on specific topics. The advice given and lessons learned are something I could go back and listen to again for inspiration because they're that powerful. To me it always seems that Molly's success and confidence came easily because of her attitude and personality, but it's obviously not that simple and I appreciate her sharing her struggles. Love hearing about her support systems and the importance of those. Molly is an amazing person and even though I'm older than her, she's a role model for sure.

You must read this book!!

This is a book about Molly's life. Her story is relatable even for a sighted person. I have been watching her YouTube video's for about 3 years now, and I still didn't know about 1/2 the stuff she says in this book. Its really inspirational to go after your dreams. And as someone who struggles with mental health its awesome to know that not everything comes easy for anyone. She really shows her personalty in this book as well, witch I love!

Who knew

Who knew that a 25 year old woman could inspire and teach me as a 44 year old woman. Her stories are not only an inspiration, but have really deep life lessons. I am so grateful to have been inspired by Molly. Keep up the great work that you are doing.

Interesting

This is not a book I would have chosen had it not been offered as one of the free Audible Originals for this month. I had never heard of Molly Burke. I'm glad I had the opportunity to choose it and listen. I ended up liking it and I even got a little emotional at some of the parts discussing her early years. Then I got really emotional when she talked about Gypsy passing away. It's Not What it Looks Like is a quick listen, only 3 hours and 5 minutes, and is narrated by Molly herself. She sounded as though she was reading it but that didn't bother me at all. She isn't a seasoned audiobook narrator so I got what I expected and honestly, I prefer to hear it in her own voice rather than have a typical narrator. I really liked the little intermission where she discussed Guide Dogs vs Service Dogs vs Emotional Support Animals and fake service animals. I think this is an important issue that needs to be discussed more frequently and should honestly be screamed from rooftops until people get it through their heads that they are creating a disservice to many by lying about their dogs to just bring them along. Don't even get me started or I'll have to get out my soapbox. Now that I have listened to this audiobook, I'm curious to know more about Molly Burke and will be heading over to YouTube to peruse her channel a bit.
