Review Guidelines: Rachel says, because we’ll be reading different books, we decided to make the review process a little more stream-lined. So, we made a little mnemonic for the suggested way to do your review
[you can do it differently]
Here’s my R.E.A.D.S review of BOUNDARIES…
What part of the book could you NOT get enough of?
> I loved the material presented , especially how our childhood character development reflects in our boundaries as adults. I also valued the scriptural substantiation that often provided new depth to understanding of the examples provided. Such an excellent wealth of material, it’s hard to choose one part.
How did you relate to/care for the characters?
>I related to many of the character examples used to illustrate boundary issues. Those reflecting descriptive scenarios of self and others I recognized, both adults and children.
What’s your thought on the plot line and twists and turns?
>Thorough exploration of personalities and boundary development, the twists and turns were relevant to the discussion and informative material.
What other books are like this one?
>Many books, even with the same title. I particularly like this book’s faith based material.
Does it serendipitous-ly line-up with things going on in your life/the news right now?
>Perhaps a readiness in me to hear the material for my own growth – a preparation of the soil for these seeds to root. Also, beneficial in understanding healthy growth and maturing of children in various stages of development. Definitely lining up with the confrontation of daily world news exposing boundary issues on many levels.
You know you judged this book by the cover. > 🙂
What did you think of it? How did it relate to the contents of the novel?
> Creative simplicity in this cover. The message is conveyed simply, directly, and effectively. That single pencil line divides the title into a revelation. We are BOUND when we don’t have boundaries – when we don’t know how to say ‘no’, when to say ‘yes’, and how to take control of our own life.
And the font and layout of the pages?
> N/A as my copy was audiobook. As such, the relevant issues are narrator’s capability and recording issues. I found the narrator capable and skilled at inflection, tone, modulation, clarity and very easy to follow. He added personality to the various characterizations of personalities. Recording quality was clear and without distractions.
Stars. How many out of five do you give this book? 5*s
Would you recommend this book to a friend?
> Definitely. Especially to friends interested in understanding how their inner perspectives on boundaries effect their actions, those interested in personal change, and how applying this knowledge can become part of transformation and well-being.
