  1. This is a book that we've noticed is on a lot of people's "Favorite Books of All Time" lists. That's piqued my curiousity, so I'm glad we've read this as a book club.

    I really like this story and its message. It may be true that these are things we already know, but I don't mind hearing good things again and again told in different ways like this. A reminder of this kind can only ground you more and give more hope and inspiration and energy.

    I enjoy the author's fable-telling style. It's a quick read and gives pause for contemplation and that's not ever a bad thing.
