Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Like every other Chicken for the Soul books this one is filled with short stories that are inspirational, personal, heartwarming, funny, and encouraging. Some of the stories were written by Canadians, some we have never heard of before and others we have. There are other stories written by neighbors from the U.S. that come up for a visit and have shared their stories. I mostly enjoyed the personal touch of every story. Although I enjoyed every story and I am a Canadian I thought there were too much stories that touched on hockey. I understand it being "our" sport, but that isn't the only sport we play and the only thing we do in Canada.The book started off with a hockey story and throughout there were more hockey stories. I didn't mind reading them, but I feel someone else might bore of it easily.I enjoyed Liona Boyd's songs. There were also quotes by a variety of people at the beginning of every story which I enjoyed. The sharing of memories were touching. Sometimes, it would bring memories of my own back, or shed a tear or make me chuckle. Many stories make one realize that the world is a wonderful place. All in all, I am glad that I read this book.
