good book May 4, 2006
this book isn't just for girls even though the cover would make you think that. its for anybody who didn't know what to do or where to go after college. its funny and it makes you think.
It was fun and I learned some things too Mar 28, 2006
I got this book on recommendation from a friend and loved it! The people that you meet in this book are unforgettable. I laughed, learned about different worldviews (some very different - check out chapter on "a new angle"), and thoroughly enjoyed this read.
Funny and Insightful Mar 25, 2006
I picked this up as an impulse buy and once I started reading it, had trouble putting it down. As a recent college graduate working a retail job, I understand the frustration of not having a job in your major. Jennifer's story is great for recent college graduates and anyone who isn't sure what direction his or her life is taking and wonders "Is this really all meaningful?" This book will show you that no matter your circumstance, you're really not alone, and things really can work out in the end.
Excellent read! Mar 15, 2006
I found myself completely immersed in this book from the author's opening comments. Her engaging descriptions of people she meets along her life's path along with her raw honesty and sense of humor make this book a wonderful read. The author asks questions about life in the post college zone that are refreshingly real and vulnerable. This book is smart, witty, and speaks to the heart of those searching for life's meaning among seemingly unconnected experiences. Highly recommended.
Clever, fresh, and witty... the possibilities are endless. Mar 13, 2006
Fantastic! A hilarious and eye-opening page-turner. This book kept me wanting more with every chapter. I love how the author reveals her honest perspective about the world she's found herself in the middle of. She skillfully describes this world full of fascinating (to say the least) people and experiences, just waiting to change her life in subtle, powerful ways. Everyone can relate to this book somehow: have you ever wondered why you're in the place you're in? What crazy lessons life is trying to teach you? Been amused by intriguingly random interactions? Frustrated with choices you've made? With Faith and the City, you'll be reminded that life's possibilities pop up in the most perplexing places. I highly recommend this book.
