message 1: by Sandi (new) - added it

Sandi Beverly, I'm curious as to why you gave this only one star. I'm considering adding it to my to-read list because people keep talking about how good it is. I want to hear the other side.

Beverly I found it a bit "precious." There were some parts that just frustrated me, some inaccuracies, and some parts that left me feeling insulted (my own personal reaction, so I can't say whether other people would like this or not). Also, I felt that the author was rather insulting to one of my friends about a question she had asked regarding the book. I think all readers should be treated with respect, not disregarded or verbally slapped for asking a question about something the author wrote. Again, this is just my opinion and many other folks truly love the books. I think my reaction may be tainted by other information. So try out the book for yourself and let me know what you think. all best, bev
