A controversial tale of friendship and tragedy during the Great Depression.
A controversial tale of friendship and tragedy during the Great DepressionOver seventy-five years since its first publication, Steinbeck’s tale of commitment, loneliness, hope, and loss remains one of America’s most widely read and taught novels.
An unlikely pair, George and Lennie, two migrant workers in California during the Great Depression, grasp for their American Dream. They hustle work when they can, living a hand-to-mouth existence. For George and Lennie have a plan: to own an acre of land and a shack they can call their own.
When they land jobs on a ranch in the Salinas Valley, the fulfillment of their dream seems to be within their grasp. But even George cannot guard Lennie from the provocations, nor predict the consequences of Lennie’s unswerving obedience to the things George taught him.
Of Mice and Men represents an experiment in form, which Steinbeck described as “a kind of playable novel, written in a novel form but so scened and set that it can be played as it stands. ” A rarity in American letters, it achieved remarkable success as a novel, a Broadway play, and three acclaimed films.

This is truly a heartfelt story. As always, I personally, think you would enjoy reading the book before you see the movie. It’s impossible not to feel compassion for all of the characters involved. It will pull at you until you finish it.
I picked up this copy to read with my daughter for her Freshman required reading in High School. It’s my third time around, but it’s just as enjoyable as the first. The way Steinbeck creates relationships without sentimentality is amazing.
He brings a new level to the feeling of “brother from another mother”. his writing continues to astound me decades after it’s considered relevance.

“What is masculinity? Ask ten men and you’ll get ten vague, conflicting answers. Unlike any book of its kind, The Way of Men offers a simple, straightforward answer-without getting bogged down in religion, morality, or politics.
It’s a guide for understanding who men have been and the challenges men face today. The Way of Men captures the silent, stifling rage of men everywhere who find themselves at odds with the over-regulated, over-civilized, politically correct modern world.
If you’ve ever closed your eyes and wished for one day as a lion, this book is for you. “–Publisher description.
Hemingway’s Pulitzer Prize-winning classic The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway’s most enduring works. Told in language of great simplicity and power, it is the story of an old Cuban fisherman, down on his luck, and his supreme ordeal — a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream.
Here Hemingway recasts, in strikingly contemporary style, the classic theme of courage in the face of defeat, of personal triumph won from loss. Written in 1952, this hugely successful novella confirmed his power and presence in the literary world and played a large part in his winning the 1954 Nobel Prize for literature.
Ernest Hemingway did more to change the style of English prose than any other writer in the twentieth century, and for his efforts he was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1954. Hemingway wrote in short, declarative sentences and was known for his tough, terse prose.
Publication of The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms immediately established Ernest Hemingway as one of the greatest literary lights of the twentieth century. As part of the expatriate community in 1920s Paris, the former journalist and World War I ambulance driver began a career that lead to international fame.
Hemingway was an aficionado of bullfighting and big-game hunting, and his main protagonists were always men and women of courage and conviction, who suffered unseen scars, both physical and emotional.
He covered the Spanish Civil War, portraying it in fiction in his brilliant novel For Whom the Bell Tolls, and he subsequently covered World War I. His classic novella The Old Man and the Sea won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953.
My first time reading Hemingway, I was disappointed, not with the style nor content, but because it was too short. The story left me wanting more. When Santiago is out in his boat, I could feel the heat of the Sun, smell the salty sea and the waves making me rise and fall with him.
Most acutely, I felt his experience of aloneness and eagerness to land the giant fish that pulled him farther and farther away from land. I now live in anticipation of reading more from this great author, and completely recommend this short, but powerful, literary masterpiece.
My journalist father was 4 years younger than Hemingway. There’s a story that they met at some point, but I have no details. When I was a high school senior, Dad gave me “The Old Man and the Sea”, saying, “This is how it’s done” – a high compliment from my very exacting word-crafting father.
I’ve read all of Hemingway’s books, this one more than once. “The Old Man and the Sea” is classic, then and now. The title almost, but not quite, says it all. Enjoy.
“‘A Better Man,’ with its mix of meteorological suspense, psychological insight and criminal pursuit, is arguably the best book yet in an outstanding, original oeuvre. ” —Tom Nolan, The Wall Street Journal”Enchanting.
one of his most ennobling missions. ” —Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book ReviewCatastrophic spring flooding, blistering attacks in the media, and a mysterious disappearance greet Chief Inspector Armand Gamache as he returns to the Sûreté du Québec in the latest novel by #1 New York Times bestselling author Louise Penny.
It’s Gamache’s first day back as head of the homicide department, a job he temporarily shares with his previous second-in-command, Jean-Guy Beauvoir. Flood waters are rising across the province. In the middle of the turmoil a father approaches Gamache, pleading for help in finding his daughter.
As crisis piles upon crisis, Gamache tries to hold off the encroaching chaos, and realizes the search for Vivienne Godin should be abandoned. But with a daughter of his own, he finds himself developing a profound, and perhaps unwise, empathy for her distraught father.
Increasingly hounded by the question, how would you feel. , he resumes the search. As the rivers rise, and the social media onslaught against Gamache becomes crueler, a body is discovered. And in the tumult, mistakes are made.
In the next novel in this “constantly surprising series that deepens and darkens as it evolves” (New York Times Book Review), Gamache must face a horrific possibility, and a burning question. What would you do if your child’s killer walked free?.
I wasn’t impressed by the book. That started off with knowing the geography of the area. The author suggests that floods would cause that part of Canada to wash into Vermont, but Vermont is uphill from Canada! Later in the book, it seemd to me that the author couldn’t make up her mind as to where the story was going.
Another riveting novel in the series with Inspector Gamache is my review of the 15th book about the characters in the Quebec village of Three Pines and the Surete du Quebec. The people in the stories are just as lifelike and charismatic as they were in the other novels.
There is a reality here of life as we know it as difficult and challenging, but with the hope of the counterbalance of the love and caring of family and friends healing the wounds. Louise Penny takes you farther into this world of murder and mystery than many of the other writers in this genre.
Loved the series at first but it should have ended 2 books ago. The plots are great. The descriptions are awesome but. It could be that while I love the way Penny writes , I despise her hero Gamache & his wife and Clara the artist.
They are exactly what their detractors in the series say they are so I have no empathy for them. I do love Ruth the poet & Jean Guy. Its time for Gamache to retire and Penny to start a new book or series.
New York Times bestselling author and Hollywood producer DeVon Franklin speaks out frankly and openly about why men behave the way they do and what everyone—men and women alike—need to know about it.
Men cheat. Men love power. Men love sex. Men are greedy. Men are dogs. But is this the truth about men? In this groundbreaking book, DeVon Franklin dishes the real Truth About Men by making the compelling case that men aren’t dogs but all men share the same struggle.
He uses the metaphor of a dog that needs training as a way to explore why behavior persists in men that can lead them to act against their vows, their integrity and even their character. DeVon provides the manual for how men can change, both on a personal and a societal level by providing practical solutions for helping men learn how to resist temptation, how to practice self-control and how to love.
He argues the same discipline that drives men in their professional lives needs to be applied to their private lives. DeVon is also transparent about the challenges he faces daily as he endeavors to “Master the Dog” within.
But The Truth About Men isn’t just for men. DeVon tells female readers everything they need to know about men. He offers women a real-time understanding of how men’s struggle affects them, insights that can help them navigate their relationships with men and information on how to heal from the damage that some misbehaving men may have inflicted.
This book is a raw, informative, and compelling look at an issue that threatens to tear our society apart yet it offers a positive way forward for men and women alike.
I found the book to be a real eye opener. I’ve been married 21 yrs. , and this book helped me to put a finger on what I could see in my husband but never identify, much less name. I am goin to have my teenage daughter read it to help her avoid making poor choices of immature men.
It could have been written a bit better but the concept is right on track. Bravo!.
When Christopher Isherwood’s A Single Man first appeared, it shocked many with its frank, sympathetic, and moving portrayal of a gay man in maturity. Isherwood’s favorite of his own novels, it now stands as a classic lyric meditation on life as an outsider.
Welcome to sunny suburban 1960s Southern California. George is a gay middle-aged English professor, adjusting to solitude after the tragic death of his young partner. He is determined to persist in the routines of his former life.
A Single Man follows him over the course of an ordinary twenty-four hours. Behind his British reserve, tides of grief, rage, and loneliness surge—but what is revealed is a man who loves being alive despite all the everyday injustices.
I expected this book to be in used condition because it was so cheap but it was pretty bartered. Had writing on the first page, some folded pages and was generally very worn. Book and plot it’s self was wonderful and would recommend.
From the bestselling, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Road comes a “profoundly disturbing and gorgeously rendered” novel (The Washington Post) that returns to the Texas-Mexico border, setting of the famed Border Trilogy.
The time is our own, when rustlers have given way to drug-runners and small towns have become free-fire zones. One day, a good old boy named Llewellyn Moss finds a pickup truck surrounded by a bodyguard of dead men.
A load of heroin and two million dollars in cash are still in the back. When Moss takes the money, he sets off a chain reaction of catastrophic violence that not even the law—in the person of aging, disillusioned Sheriff Bell—can contain.
As Moss tries to evade his pursuers—in particular a mysterious mastermind who flips coins for human lives—McCarthy simultaneously strips down the American crime novel and broadens its concerns to encompass themes as ancient as the Bible and as bloodily contemporary as this morning’s headlines.
No Country for Old Men is a triumph. Look for Cormac McCarthy’s new novel, The Passenger, coming October ’22.
This novel is America’s best novelist’s best novel. No Country For Old Men is entertaining and exciting. It paints a true picture of 1980’s West Texas. The characters are spot-on, the plot is original and interesting.
I’m reminded of a famous Texas movie critic’s remarks concerning as to why the motion picture industry is so interested in Texas: because evil thrives in Texas. In No Country For Old Men, as in real life: evil thrives in Texas.
First let me say that my opinion is currupted having seen the movie prior to reading the book. I have to say that I enjoyed the movie better as it gave a darker view of the story and the acting was outstanding.
Without giving any spoilers, I will say that the book varies somewhat from the movie and does provide a few more answers to questions that I had after watching it. There was a balance of characters that had more of a roll in the book but less or not at all in the movie.
The book stayed true to the main characters overall but I thought the book made Anton’s character seem a bit more human (if thats possible) than the movies depiction of him being this evil, almost ghost of a man.
I was not crazy about the authors style of writing when he was giving descriptions of things or actions of the characters but enjoyed the vocabulary used by all as I have lived in the southwest and I am also a lawman which the latter made me able to relate to Sheriff Bell.
I kind of feel the same way he does sometimes. Anyway, I can go on and on but will say that I probably would have given 4 stars if I had not been spoiled by the Cohen Brothers film. (I’m a big fan of thiers) That being said, if you can do so, read the book first then definitely see the movie.
The book itself is an easy read and is reletively short in my opinion. I hope this helps! Enjoy!.
Seller was amazing, really quick. Really good price on the book. The book itself was awful but that is my opinion. The English language used is very Southern American and is just really bad. I wonder if people actually talk like that, or used to, because it is just ridiculous.
I found it very distracting, I think the story might be good but I just wasn`t able to get into it as the bad grammar was very hard to read.
Read the New York Times bestseller that has taken the world by storm! In this “charming debut” (People) from one of Sweden’s most successful authors, a grumpy yet loveable man finds his solitary world turned on its head when a boisterous young family moves in next door.
Meet Ove. He’s a curmudgeon—the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him “the bitter neighbor from hell.
” But must Ove be bitter just because he doesn’t walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time? Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove’s mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul.
All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents’ association to their very foundations. A feel-good story in the spirit of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand, Fredrik Backman’s novel about the angry old man next door is a thoughtful exploration of the profound impact one life has on countless others.
“If there was an award for ‘Most Charming Book of the Year,’ this first novel by a Swedish blogger-turned-overnight-sensation would win hands down” (Booklist, starred review).
The book is about a grumpy old man called Ove, who wakes up every day to end his life because he is all alone after passing away of his wife, but each day something or the other happens which makes him to postpone his resolve.
Ove has hard time coming to terms with people around because he doesn’t like people much and he reluctantly help others because he is literally dragged into such situations where he has the least say (even if he does have a say, it is mostly overruled by himself ).
But still he does. Though he might be sulky but he possess a loving and kind heart which keeps in mind the memories of his wife Sonja and tries to do as he think she would have liked him to do. The narrative of the story is crisp with dollops of good humor, which makes it a very gripping read.
The experience is almost that of watching a movie, it is so vivid I could visualize it for the entire length. But I felt that this book was really much more than just a story of an old man coming to terms with his life.
It was also about the notion of giving because living is not merely about what we can take from life, it is also about what we can give it back. To receive happiness and kindness in one’s life is blissful but to be able to give it to those in need brings a tranquility, which can make the life more meaningful.
I strongly believe that this process is cyclical. A giver gives and the receiver receives and the cycle moves on and in the process the giver also becomes a receiver. I felt this book very elegantly brings this about, focusing on the inherent goodness, all the while also managing to be light and humorous.
“Death is a strange thing. People live their whole lives as if it does not exist, and yet it’s often one of the great motivations for living. ” -Fredrik Backman A Man Called Ove is such a gem! This story follows a grumpy, VERY stubborn old man named Ove – pronounced “oo-vuh” who is set in his ways.
As Ove’s story unfolds, you learn about his childhood, his loves and losses, along with everything else that comes to eventually define him. My three words to describe Ove are: hardworking, honest, and hardheaded.
This wonderful novel touches on the different stages of life, love, and loss. It was a bittersweet reminder that tomorrow isn’t promised and that things can change in the blink of an eye. Backman perfectly depicts the loneliness and feeling of irrelevance that often comes with old age.
This sweet but incredibly heartbreaking book holds such a special place in my heart. Fredrik Backman is one of best writers EVER. His novels always leave me thinking about the storyline and characters long after I’ve finished the book.
He is a literary genius and his writing style is perfection. One of the best things about his works are the characters and this was also true for Ove. I laughed so much reading this one but it definitely also tugged hard on the heartstrings.
The change in pace throughout the story was amazing and the character development was incredible. You can’t help but fall in love with all of the characters in this book!.
Good Condition As New. Best book I’ve read in a while. Ove is very funny and a real hero. Very well written it takes you through an emotional roller coaster. A story of human kindness. My husband is now reading the book and he’s laughing and crying and thoroughly enjoying it.
“Haruki Murakami’s Men Without Women examines what happens to characters without important women in their lives; it’ll move you and confuse you and sometimes leave you with more questions than answers.
” –Barack Obama A dazzling new collection of short stories–the first major new work of fiction from the beloved, internationally acclaimed, Haruki Murakami since his #1 best-selling Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage.
Across seven tales, Haruki Murakami brings his powers of observation to bear on the lives of men who, in their own ways, find themselves alone. Here are vanishing cats and smoky bars, lonely hearts and mysterious women, baseball and the Beatles, woven together to tell stories that speak to us all.
Marked by the same wry humor that has defined his entire body of work, in this collection Murakami has crafted another contemporary classic.
This book ALWAYS has a waiting list at the library. My intellectual father told me to Read this book. A thoughtful writer with delicate nuances and hints. I want to call the author himself, tell him who his character is.
Pornography. Adultery. Television addiction. Immaturity. Edwin Louis Cole, known as “the father of the Christian men’s movement,” was not afraid to tackle the tough topics that affect men today. His straightforward, biblical insights help men and women alike to realize their full potential in Christ.
Putting the principles found in Maximized Manhood into practice will revolutionize your home and transform your life into what God designed it to be. This newly revised edition of a best-selling book for men just got better!.
Awesome book. This book is making me be a better man toward guiding my family in the right path. Use this book for our group meeting with my church friends. Would recommend to all men out there that are struggling with understanding who we are as men.
Edgar Roy-an alleged serial killer held in a secure, fortress-like Federal Supermax facility-is awaiting trial. He faces almost certain conviction. Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are called in by Roy’s attorney, Sean’s old friend and mentor Ted Bergin, to help work the case.
But their investigation is derailed before it begins-en route to their first meeting with Bergin, Sean and Michelle find him murdered. It is now up to them to ask the questions no one seems to want answered: Is Roy a killer? Who murdered Bergin? With help from some surprising allies, they continue to pursue the case.
But the more they dig into Roy’s past, the more they encounter obstacles, half-truths, dead-ends, false friends, and escalating threats from every direction. Their persistence puts them on a collision course with the highest levels of the government and the darkest corners of power.
In a terrifying confrontation that will push Sean and Michelle to their limits, the duo may be permanently parted.
The King and Maxwell series contains great plots and themes, with realistic characters. The Sixth Man was a great read! I hope the series continues. The character flaws and personalities really come through, and the plot and storyline are realistic.
The series started off great and got better with each book. Baldacci knows how to get and keep a reader’s attention, and he does it with great writing. Many other authors use an abundance of sex related meterial, and graphic content.
This series contains enough information to get the point across, but not so much that it became theme of the book. There is a reason Baldacci is one of the best. The bookstore I do most of my buying from recommended that I try Baldacci and I have not been disappointed.
Baldacci is an incredible writer. and this is one of his books that stands out as one of the best of his writings. The King and Maxwell series is quite an ingenious spellbinding saga that shows the author did a lot of research in creating truly unique situations to keep the reader glued to the pages.
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER – “For all those who have lived with Vonnegut in their imaginations. this is what he is like in person. ”–USA Today In a volume that is penetrating, introspective, incisive, and laugh-out-loud funny, one of the great men of letters of this age–or any age–holds forth on life, art, sex, politics, and the state of America’s soul.
From his coming of age in America, to his formative war experiences, to his life as an artist, this is Vonnegut doing what he does best: Being himself. Whimsically illustrated by the author, A Man Without a Country is intimate, tender, and brimming with the scope of Kurt Vonnegut’s passions.
Praise for A Man Without a Country“[This] may be as close as Vonnegut ever comes to a memoir. ”–Los Angeles Times“Like [that of] his literary ancestor Mark Twain, [Kurt Vonnegut’s] crankiness is good-humored and sharp-witted.
[Reading A Man Without a Country is] like sitting down on the couch for a long chat with an old friend. ”–The New York Times Book Review “Filled with [Vonnegut’s] usual contradictory mix of joy and sorrow, hope and despair, humor and gravity.
”–Chicago Tribune “Fans will linger on every word. as once again [Vonnegut] captures the complexity of the human condition with stunning calligraphic simplicity. ”–The Australian “Thank God, Kurt Vonnegut has broken his promise that he will never write another book.
Kurt Vonnegut Jr’s last book, A Man Without A Country. I enjoyed reading it so much and learned a thing or two. Did you know the story behind the title of Ray Bradbury’s book, Farenheit 451? Are you a ‘twerp”, or not? The answers to these and many more questions are to be found in this delightful, funny, sad, angry and thought provoking book.
One of Vonnegut’s better books, within an already wonderful collection of works. This one is full of allegories especially poignant in this time in history. Condition of the book is very good/excellent.
Kurt Vonnegut’s latest book, a collection of essays rather than the fiction he’s known for, is at turns illuminating, maddening, and depressing, very much like the fiction he’s known for. Vonnegut is focused on his advancing years here, and he comes perilously close to sounding like a grumpy old man.
Every time he does, however, he manages to throw in an unexpected zinger of crystalline prose that–agree with him or not–makes you want to jot the passage down for posterity. Pieces like: Human beings are chimpanzees who get crazy drunk on power.
By saying that our leaders are power-drunk chimpanzees, am I in danger of wrecking the morale of our soldiers fighting and dying in the Middle East? Their morale, like so many bodies, is already shot to pieces.
They are being treated, as I never was, like toys a rich kid got for Christmas. This from a WWII infantryman and POW who famously lived through the firebombing of Dresden and wrote about it in Slaughterhouse-Five, my favorite Vonnegut novel.
He’s pissed off and in full-on man without a country rant. But just when he gets you wound up and fed up, he hits you with this: When you get to my age, if you get to my age, which is 81, and if you have reproduced, you will find yourself asking your own children, who are themselves middle-aged, what life is all about.
I put my big question about life to my biological son Mark. Mark is a pediatrician. Dr. Vonnegut said this to his doddering old dad: Father, we are here to help each other get through this thing, whatever it is.
So I pass that on to you. Write it down, and put it in your computer, so you can forget it. He gives you Candide’s laughter in the face of tragedy–he mentions Voltaire’s work in the book–and its deep satire and irony as so few have managed since.
Reflections Of A Man is a book designed for both men and women to enhance the quality of their personal relationships. For the women, it encourages you to recognize the true value of your love, to reevaluate your standards and to make the decision that you will no longer settle for anything less than someone who loves you, respects you, and truly makes you happy.
For the men, this book will not only encourage you to learn more about the emotional needs of a woman, but it will provide you with clear insight into what a woman truly needs from you, emotionally, to be happy.
Through beautiful words of poetry, powerful quotes and advice full of wisdom, Mr. Amari Soul creates a truly enlightening experience for both men and women with Reflections Of A Man. On one hand, women gain a new perspective on the true value of their love, raise their standards and refuse to settle.
On the other hand, men become better equipped to, not only understand a woman’s emotional needs, but they are better able to meet or exceed their new standards as well.
I am not a book reader. But when I saw this on Facebook and read some contents, it gives me an idea to get this book a chance. And now I got my copy and it is great! I will buy one for my friend. I will definitely recommend this book!.
I bought this book several months ago for myself and read it in 3 days; it is an easy an addictive read. I learned so much! I bought it this time as a gift for a friend and they have already mentioned how excellent this book is.
From internationally renowned authors, Allan and Barbara Pease comes the worldwide bestseller Why Men Don’t Listen and Women Can’t Read Maps. Men and women are have different values and different rules.
Not better or worse – just different. Everyone knew this but very few people were willing to admit it. That is, until Allan and Barbara Pease came along. Their practical, easy-to-read and often controversial book will help you discover the truth about men and women – and teach you what to do about it.
They explore why: * Men really can’t do more than one thing at a time * Men should never lie to women * Women talk so much and men so little * Men love erotic images and women aren’t impressed * Women prefer simply to talk it through * Men offer solutions but hate advice * Women despair about men’s silences * Men want sex and women need love Why Men Don’t Listen and Women Can’t Read Maps is a sometimes shocking, always illuminating and frequently hilarious look at why the battle lines are drawn between the sexes.
Read this book and you’ll learn so many secrets about the opposite sex you might never have to say you’re sorry again!.
Great book. Explains a lot about how men and women are different and why this is so. We are biologically different, our brains are different, we have different hormones and environment plays a part. Men and women have different strengths and weaknesses, and not just the obvious physical ones.
Also the title is tongue in cheek so there are lots of men who do listen (when they want to!) and lots of women who can read maps.
looking for answers. laughing makes one feel good, plenty of causes to make that happen in this book & I mean really laugh to the point of being almost unable to stop. Just a little too many statistics & references to people with names unpronounceable, that people like me with only basic education can digest.
This is a must read for anyone But I would particularly recommend it for any couple getting into a new relationship and it should come with the wedding ring !! It explains the difference between men and women and why we do the things we do.
It gives a much better understanding of the weaker sex(men)!!!!!.
The must-read thriller of 2018, this riveting and relentlessly compelling psychological suspense debut weaves a mystery about a childhood game gone dangerously awry that will keep readers guessing right up to the shocking endingIn 1986, Eddie and his friends are just kids on the verge of adolescence.
They spend their days biking around their sleepy little English village and looking for any taste of excitement they can get. The chalk men are their secret code; little chalk stick figures they leave for one another as messages only they can understand.
But then a mysterious chalk man leads them right to a dismembered body, and nothing is ever the same. In 2016, Eddie is fully grown, and thinks he’s put his past behind him. But then he gets a letter in the mail, containing a single chalk stick figure.
When it turns out that his friends got the same message, they think it could be a prank. until one of them turns up dead. That’s when Eddie realizes that saving himself means finally figuring out what really happened all those years ago.
Expertly alternating between flashbacks and the present day, The Chalk Man is the very best kind of suspense novel, one where every character is wonderfully fleshed out and compelling, where every mystery has a satisfying payoff, and where the twists will shock even the savviest reader.
Okay, so, I REALLY wanted to like this book. I mean I tried so hard! When it got recommended to me and I look at the reviews and so many people say it’s amazing, I just had to get through it and see what everyone saw in it.
So, I’m reading and I’m reading and I’m waiting for something to actually happen and well next thing you know the book is over and a bunch of stuff kind of happens at once, but it’s really just a three silly twists that are just there to make you say “OH MY GOD!” Troll 2 style, but really they just made me roll my eyes and wonder why I let myself read this.
I purchased this book based on the reviews from your readers who recommended this book. The storyline started off well enough but about half way through I began to lose interest, as the story became repetitive and basic in content.
Not worth the money I spent I’m afraid and I certainly found it to be no spine chiller.
Manual for Men is for men who are in the arena, warriors for Christ and His Church. It is for those men who battle daily for their souls and for their family. – In Part I, Bishop Thomas Olmsted calls for Catholic men to step up and “into the breach” in service to God, their families, parishes, and wider communities.
– In Part II, Travis Cook presents a treasure trove of prayers, church teachings, and writings from the saints that serve as a tremendous source of inspiration for men seeking to become better men of God.
It is at once an essential guide and a profound book of prayers designed specifically for men. – Now, perhaps more than ever, men need to be men. But what it means to be a man has been twisted into a pale and mangled image of true manhood.
Manual for Men serves as a field guide and instruction manual for those husbands, fathers, sons and brothers who would become real men of God — men who protect, physically and spiritually, those entrusted to them; men who sacrifice, pray, fight, love, and live by the example of Christ.
– There is a battle for our souls, our families, our world, and Our Lord calls us men to fight. Are you ready to answer the call? Will you accept Bishop Olmsted’s plea to “engage in the battle that is raging around you”?.
I chose the audiobook for practical reasons. The book would probably work even better as a physical book, where it really is a manual, a “hand-book,” that you have “at hand,” so you can look it up and use it in your daily life.
In terms of content, the book is excellent and a real help in my life as a Christian and as a man. The content also has a freedom and some surprising qualities that I find fascinating. You should hear it several times so that it sits on your spine, not to mention in your soul.
A great heirloom piece, this book is handcrafted in beautiful brown grain leather with edges guided in opulent gold, and it can be personalized, which is what I did for my husband as a Father’s Day gift, his name embossed in a beautiful script font.
He absolutely loves it and treasures not just the outside but the beautifully written words held within, furthering and depending his passion and growth for being a godly man. We couldn’t be happier with our purchase.
I purchased 3 of these beautiful books. One for my husband and one each for my adult sons. They are beautiful to hold in your hand and when you open it you will find something to read to fill you with grace for the day.

There is so much wisdom shared in Home Improvement, I was hoping Tim’s book would give further insight as to how this has developed in life. It feels like this book however is more so just poking fun at the differences between men and women (from a man’s point of view).
There are still some good quotes to be had. I guess my expectations might have just been too high.
I purchased the book because I loved the actor. I dont think there is a movie or tv show that he has done that I havent liked. After starting the book, Interesting to know that his real name at birth was Timothy Allen Dick.
(yeah, that part is funny) The book was written for guys-ALL guys-and I found it very hard to relate to much in the book as a female and to keep my attention to the storyline-it bounces around alot. It details alot of his childhood and what lead up to making him who he is, but also alot of comparisons between men & women (in a mans perspective).
There were a couple of good parts where he is telling stories of things that they did as kids but overall, I would only recommend this book to a man-women find it hard to relate to it.
