This would be a great book if you are going through marriage or divorce problems and people keep asking you about things and how you’re feeling (maybe even sometimes acting like you should “just get over it”)…you could hand them this book. Ken’s book was spot on for the feelings I had during my divorce. He’s the sympathetic and compassionate friend who, though you haven’t met, understands. In my estimation, understanding from someone in your shoes is worth a lot more than unfeeling and stupid advice that so many people are anxious to hand out.
I am so glad to have been given the opportunity to read Collette’s book. Like her friend Allen O. Green states, she does have a winning smile, and this book shows me that she has a winning life! Her attitude, passion for helping others, and engaging way of talking with her readers, make this a very inspiring book. In fact, I am a breast cancer survivor, and I learned more cancer facts through Collette. She is helpful to all people, in my opinion, sharing exactly what cancer is and how you can do healthy things for yourself to hopefully keep cancer away. Collette has a very great story that needs to be read.
I was hoping for a cancer experience book that could make you feel comfortable with the author. I was not disappointed. If I could, I would give Collette and her book a standing ovation. 🙂
5.0 out of 5 stars The Best So Far!, November 24, 2012
This review is from: A Little Lost Sometimes: The Complete Works of Ken Barr (Volume 1) (Paperback)
I bought a paper copy of this book because I wanted to have all my Ken Barr Kindle books in one place. So glad I went that route. It’s an amazing book, and its message never gets old. Beautifully written, the new poems in the book are a delight as well. Thank you, Mr. Barr!
I follow Tom on his blog and have always enjoyed his wit and creativity. So it was no surprise that Leather to the Corinthians is a huge blockbuster of unparalleled genius and talent. I laughed aloud at least once on every page, and my husband wanted to know what I found so funny. The plot twists and turns and very amusing characters left me breathless with anticipation for more, and turned my reading experience into fast page turning. There are so many references to big business, consumerism at its worst, old television sitcoms and catch phrases, I enjoyed myself immensely while reading this book!
Do you remember the commercial, “The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste”? Tom Lucas demonstrates what happens if kids don’t trash their brain with drugs – they can become powerful writers! In my estimation, he is the Einstein of creativity. This book would also make a terrific movie.
I really appreciated the full-length author biography and interview someone had with Tom. When I come to the end of a great novel I feel sad that now it’s done, so I read about the author in order to prolong the pleasure just a tiny bit. So often when I read a book that I really like, there is but one tiny paragraph about the author on the back cover, and I am left disappointed. Not so in this case!
