    PDF alternate universe.co å Jamesland Kindle ½ jamesland kindle, Jamesland EpubBetween 3 and 4 stars I really enjoy Hueven's writing styleand sometime's it's so Nice to read a book that ties up loose ends and gives you a warm fuzzy feeling inside I liked the philosophy bits and I'm a huge sucker for characters so I enjoyed those as well That being said some parts are a too unrealistic and the characters' faults are almost universally erased or turned into virtues by the end of the book I was very happy reading it but in retrospect I'm less content Still a good book uick easy and enjoyable

    PDF alternate universe.co å Jamesland Kindle ½ jamesland kindle, Jamesland EpubI can't decide between 3 and 4 stars It's a uirky book which I liked Characters who are unbearable and annoying at first somehow uickly become endearing and likeable despite the stupid things they say and do Drags a bit at points but includes well described and delicious sounding food

    PDF alternate universe.co å Jamesland Kindle ½ jamesland kindle, Jamesland EpubI am a Michelle Huneven fan and am glad I finally read this book after being put off the book by the cover yes I do judge books by their covers A good story I think it will be especially appreciated by Unitarian Universalist ministers and their spousespartners and friends There is stuff in there that you just can't make up You will find yourself smiling andor cringing at times It is so real so honest This is not for everyone but I am thinking that at least some of my friends

    PDF alternate universe.co å Jamesland Kindle ½ jamesland kindle, Jamesland EpubThis is the second time I've read this book The first time was about a year and a half ago and I loved it I recommended it for my book group this year which is why I read it again I still enjoyed it very much though it didn't have the same sense of discovery that it had for me on my first reading I think the characters are all compelling and the uestions about spirituality and one's life of love loss and redemption are all ones that resonate with me

    PDF alternate universe.co å Jamesland Kindle ½ jamesland kindle, Jamesland EpubI ended up really liking this book though it didn't grab me right away I'm so glad I persevered because the uirky story of three people trying to make it in the world Pete's constant refrain How do people live in this world? is both funny off beat and eventually absorbing That a successful life can be lived to many different ways never fails to interest me and on that note the book does not disappoint

    PDF alternate universe.co å Jamesland Kindle ½ jamesland kindle, Jamesland EpubI'm not sure how this one ended up on my to read list I suspect it might have been a book group selection for a meeting I wasn't able to attend and I forgot to take it off hold at the library At any rate it was fairly interesting The characters are everyday people all flawed and troubled but the author gives the reader hope for their happiness This is one of the first books I've read with a Unitarian Universalist minister as a primary character having been a UU member for 15 years or so I think her character rang true More information than I ever thought I wanted to know about William James and his family

    PDF alternate universe.co å Jamesland Kindle ½ jamesland kindle, Jamesland EpubBeautiful tale of interwoven lives and personalities Huneven shows us that no matter one’s flaws and so called imperfections we are all perfect in our own way This is a lesson in acceptance and honesty of others and oneself Pete’s Aunt Kate’s and Dr Freeman’s bluntness is not judgmental it is a huge relief and in the end compassionate and kind than all the tiptoeing and contorting we seem to do these days Eventually Alice gets there too
