This book is really good, beautifully read, practical and helpful.
This book has had a big impact on my life. I've re-read it more than once and I always get something out of it. I love the way Ann Voskamp writes and I really love that she is the one who reads the book to us. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to grow in their relationship with the Lord, the teaching is practical and something we can all take to heart. It is by offering thanks to God for all the blessings he gives us, even the hard ones, that we live the fullest life.

Worst. Gift. EVER.
I'm not falling for it. Nope. Not drinking the kool-aid on this one. I am sure I am going to catch flak for my opinion, but I am going to put myself out there anyway, for the sake of future listeners.

What the heck is all the hype about over this book???? Seriously!! This woman cannot write! Or read!! The author reads the audio book herself. Big mistake! She is not a fluent reader, nor can she portray expression at the proper times. This is one of the most dull, monotone readings of a book I have heard in a long time! She reads with absolutely no feeling whatsoever, and her voice/words sound forced!

AND on top of that she WHISTLES when she speaks! Almost EVERY word! It's sort of a high pitched lisp, but at the end of every word she whistles! When you listen to the book on your mp3 player through the ear-buds it is amplified, and it is like nails on a chalkboard. I don't know if anyone else has mentioned this in their review yet, but I would suspect they have. This is my biggest problem with the book, however, I doubt a better narrator could make it any better.

Her story, such as it is, gets lost among her melodic monotonous writing. (Too many words lady, just get to the point and get it over with!)

Overall I found this book to be just simply weird. Weird thoughts, words, reading, reviews, etc.

Here is a web address where you can go and actually hear her speak. This will give you the whistling sound to her speaking that I was talking about: (w w w . a holy experience dot com / one -thousand -gifts -book /) In this video you will also see and hear that she sounds an awful (literally) lot like Joel Osteen!
