The value and quality are fine but I found it extremely boring to listen to and I couldn't get through the book. To me and in my opinion only, it read like a 15 year old's diary and not like a grown woman's account of a love affair. Even listening through the system in my car, I found myself bored and waiting for something interesting. It never came. This is just my experience. Someone else may like it.
I bought this for my niece's birthday. She turned eleven. She loves to read and loves animals. My sister read it first to make sure it kept with her parenting expectations. She was pleased with the story line and it kept her 43 year old attention. This is a very conservative family (which made me a tad nervous since I didn't read it myself). However, it was a hit!
I am in awe of the book. I wanted to learn a little bit about Reiki and finally decided on this book and I am so glad that I did. The author takes one through steps imparting reverence and simplicity through each step. I started noticing changes in just the reading of the book without putting any steps into practice. I feel really wonderful about recommending this easy to understand book about Reiki. I has left me with a great respect for Reiki and all who practice it.
For all the hype surrounding this book as the first use of the word "robot", it has precious little to do with what we in the current day would identify as robots. For starters, this is actually a play, not a book, that takes place in 2 or 3 rooms in a building. All of the "action" is outside and off-stage. It IS probably the first cautionary tale of how technology is advancing much faster than our morality, or indeed our capacity to adapt to its effect on society. It's certainly a good read.
