really liked it

This was a 180 degree turn for me to read as I read Karl's take on the philosophy of life he's lead so far. It was filled with his 4 children and other miscellaneous items such as bats, bicycles, god, and other items. He described many things using larger words that I used the Kindle's dictionary quite often. I am a two time stroke victim and the larger the words, even if I knew them before my strokes, needed to be looked up. We had many similar things happen such as his son was stung by three ground wasps. My son had a similar thing happen where he ran out into the street to get away from the ground wasps. He was stung a lot more than 3 times. I liked when he talked about poets and will look them up as soon as I can. This was quite a change of menu for me and I was surprised how are beliefs are quite similar. I enjoyed his book because it was quite a challenge for me. I know I will find myself thinking of this book a lot longer then the mystery books that I normally read.
