The Domino Effect

Esther Larsen has a brilliant mind and can analyze the economic climate better than anyone else.  Because of this, she can see the potential for economic collapse long before anyone else.  This burden weighs heavily on her mind  This once quiet introvert has to tell others and lead the movement to challenge authority and right the wrongs they have done.

The story line is fascinating and quite intricate.  I could follow most of the financial jargon; however, I had a hard time following the character development.  For as much as Esther struggled to be a leader, she did just fine when she led others and became a voice of reason.  She was also great with supporting her boyfriend's 2 teenage daughters saying the right thing at the right time to connect with them.  It was uncanny her ability to connect with people even though she was an introvert who would rather be in front of her computer instead of in front of people.

I didn't like the book, nor did I dislike it.  It was just okay for me.

Bethany House provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for this review which I freely give.

Shaken

I have always admired Tim Tebow with how he has handled the many ups and downs of his football career.  He has impressed me with his focus on not football but on glorifying God even when it isn't always popular or profitable.

I have read Through My Eyes which further impressed me with this young man and his ability to handle pressure.  However, this latest book was a letdown.  Tim shares many anecdotal stories about his life and his personal thoughts going through certain events, but the book seemed disjointed with no real focus.  I had a hard time finishing the book because it really didn't interest me.

This was a tough review to write as I thoroughly like this young man and admire what he has done both on and off the field.  The stories he shares are interesting but as a whole, the book is mediocre.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
