    This was the best book out of my summer reading assignment. The narrator is indeed a bit mundane but, if you put the speed up to X1.25 it's bearable.

    This book is a collection of short stories about life, there are no specific fact or figures or data. It’s a good review of some basic and important life lessons, so it’s worth reading. But it’s very “folksy” and written from the point of view of an ex-preacher. His voice can be soothing at times, but a little – what’s the word, maybe patronizing? – at times.

    This would have been easier to listen to if the author/narrator didn't sound half asleep all the time. some of it was amusing and interesting. Not my favorite book.

    It seemed kind of slow at first, maybe even boring. When I really started to listen and give the stories a chance, I found it touches your heart and reminds you of the little things in life that really do remind you of love. And therefore matter. I found the stories insightful, positive and uplifting. Inspiring hope and sincerity into my life. While depressed and self centered, I found that relating to other peoples life events is human and love. Opening my mind and inviting love, I am glad I picked up this audiobook. Thank you.

    I loved the book and the reader. I would recommend this to anyone, and would listen to it again sometime! This is a classic.

    This one didn't do it for me. The author seems like a really nice person, and he had some very cute little stories, but I really didn't see any point to most of them. Maybe I'm just too shallow!

    The narrator is a drone--I didn't last 5 mins with the monotonous cadence and boring narration.

    Waste of Time. read in a monotone voice. This may have been a good book a long time a go but please.

    I absolutely loved this book. The narrator's voice was soothing, NOT boring. He told the stories with great zest and comedy. I highly recommend the book to anyone and everyone.
