Reviews - What do customers think about God Rides a Yamaha: Musings on Pain, Poetry and Pop-Culture?

Amazing  Jun 15, 2006
Kathie Shaidle is a Canadian treasure. This book will grab your heart while you travel with her in her illness. In this collection is a series of columns that were written after she was diagnosed with lupus.

"'Quitting your day job' is every artist's dream. Mine came true in 1991, when some government arts grants let me write full time.
Six weeks later, I contracted systemic lupus erthematosus, an incurable, life-threatening disease." p.7 Now she cannot even live her dream job.

At 26 she had reached her dream. She was writing full time, and looking forward to it. Then her life crashes around her feet. The pain was to the point that she could not even write. In these 26 chapters you will journey through pain, despair, hope, faith and doubt.

Shaidle has opened her illness, her life and her faith to us with a tremendous vulnerability. She states: "I can't help but think about the bad TV my life would make. I'm not a likeable, disease-movie-of-the-week heroine, pretty in a plain sort of way, running marathons or whatever in spite of my incurable illness." p.23

With such chapters as `I've fallen and I can't get up' and `Confessions of a bearded lady', the book will also uplift, encourage and make you smile and laugh.

But to find out why God rides a Yamaha you will have to read the book.
 
God rides a Yamaha and is a winner  Sep 9, 2000
Cool book, hard to put down once you get started. I found it to be thought provoking and amusing. Kathy's writing was great and you felt that you were right there with her at times. I won't give away the source of the source of the tile, which is revealed near the end of the book, but I found it to be very appropriate. Two thumbs up, especially from a fellow Yamaha rider.
