As a mother this book has made me want to run out tomorrow and by a journal and write a journal entry everyday to my two children. Kelly Corrigan really is such a gifted story teller. Very Enjoyable!!!!

Lift by Kelly Corrigan

This is the second ebook I read on my new Nook. It was entertaining and well written, however, I was quite surprised to find out it was only 45 pages long, after I had already purchased it. I wouldn't expect such a short story to be this expensive.

    I was so disappointed...

    I was so disappointed in this book. When I saw the author interviewed on TV and listened to her reasons for writing the book, I immediately thought it would be a terrific Mother's Day gift for my daughter and daughter-in-law. But when I read it, I knew that neither of them would enjoy it. I suppose I shouldn't be amazed that many writers appear to think that everyone else shares their values. But, we don't. I can actually think of only one of my friends who would have agreed with her views.

    I am grateful for the idea of writing a chronicle of what life was like and what important events happened while my children were too young to remember them. However, when I'm finished I will not be tempted to publish it. This book convinced me that these private thoughts should remain among those closest to me. I am not arrogant enough to feel that the world would judge them with the same importance that I do.

    Waste of time

    After reading the reviews of this book, I thought I was in for a real treat. I couldn't have been more wrong. I totally missed the purpose of this book. This is nothing more than a few collective memories she has of her family. I felt as is she was writing in stream of consciousness. Bouncing from one thought to the next. When I reached the last page I felt as if she decided that was enough and just stopped writing mid-thought! Don't bother reading. Instead, write down your own personal thoughts and memories of your family. You'll get more from them! I'm ashamed of myself for 1) buying this book and 2) reading it.
