it was amazing
Read in March, 2011

First off I want to say that I think this is a book that everyone should read. We are a world that is too quick to speak. We are too quick to dirty someone’s name when they aren’t around to defend themselves. In Rene Gutteridge’s book, Listen, you meet the citizens of a small town called Marlo who quickly learn the power of words. I absolutely loved this book. I was drawn in immediately and I was kept enthralled all the way till the end. The thing I liked most though was the realness of this book and the ability it had to open my eyes up to my own life. How often do we talk badly about other people? How often do we say one thing behind someone’s back, but another to their face?

After reading this book, you’ll start seeing yourself in a different light and you’ll start realizing that your words have power. Do you want that power to be uplifting or bring people down?

“Speak Kindly. Love powerfully. Listen Fully.”
