Reviews - What do customers think about Lost Choice?
A little boring Jan 9, 2007
For some reason, this book just never managed to lure me in. The mark of a good book is being unable to walk away from it without feeling the loss and being eager to get back to reading it. This book didn't achieve that. To be fair, I'd say that the last sixty or so pages were very well written and got me more interested. However, I don't think it's worth reading an entire book to enjoy a quarter of it. Overall I'd say that it's a good book and you won't be sorry you read it, but with all of the AMAZING books out there, you might want to think before you pick it up.
Wonderful read, especially if you are looking for inspiration Feb 20, 2006
I bought The Lost Choice because I really enjoyed the author's previous book, The Traveller's Gift. Lost Choice is even more inspirational, while Traveller's Gift provides motivational messages you can put into action.
I read the first 60 pages of this book a couple of weeks ago, then misplaced it. This was quite annoying, because the plot was just getting interesting. But eventually I found it and finished it, and feel quite satisfied for the experience.
Thsi is the kind of book that causes you to question yourself, and what you're doing with your life. if you prefer the unexamined life, stay away!
Andrews is still coming into his own as a writer. He's become a very good story teller, but needs to mature a bit more in the difficult art of writing, characters and viewpoint in particular. Given the overall high quality of his work, I'm sure this will come.
Overall, a good book, well worth reading. I hope Andrews stays with his writing-it shows great promise!
Pretty good book... Dec 28, 2004
The book goes back and forth between history and present without tying it together until later in the book. This tends to aggravate me no end...thus my 4 star rating. I am such a linear thinker, that is tough for me. The message of the book was fabulous though. I actually had a huge life decision to make while reading this and was inspired to move forward with it. If anything, the book was worth the money for that =) I hope it does the same for you.
Readable but too gooshy for this cynic Dec 16, 2004
This book was too heavy on its goody-goody message - that magical ancient objects put in the hands of ordinary people can lead them to greatness. Made me almost feel like "Gee, I guess I won't really make it unless I find a weird old piece of bronze."
The characters were incredibly one-dimensional - even when they got a hold of the "things." I thought I was reading LaHaye and Jenkins until I looked on the flyleaf and saw that Andy Andrews is a motivational speaker - then it made sense. I am totally non-suceptible to motivational speakers - sorry but I think it's all corn.
Don't get me wrong - I have read some inspirational work that I thought was great - Gloria J. Gibson, for example, but this? Not for me.
If you love "Reader's Digest" you might love this. If you are a bit jaded and an anti-Pollynanna, you might not care for it.
