About the Book
“You talk here about greatness. I just wanted to ask if you could understand what it was we were going for. That there is greatness in the attempt - something in the trying. That in trying, we set up a certain scaffolding that a new generation can use to climb to heights we only dreamed of.”
Anyway, I had to fight myself to continue reading this book. The first half is, to be blunt, ridiculously dumb. I can't even take it seriously. That's how bad it was. I almost marked it DNF. But then I was at a playground that was for kids only, so I couldn't even go onto the actual equipment and my phone was dead and this book happened to still be in my backpack... so my boredom powered me through the first half. I would like it noted that it came with great pain and a lot of sighing.
So, while the first half is bad, the second is much better. It's not what I'd say is "good", but it was interesting enough that I actually finished it.
In conclusion, Sofia gets -1 platypires for bringing this to the book swap in the first place. And I am pleased I was actually able to use this image in a review. It gets even better, because she's the one who made it. And she totally deserves it.
Oh, and the book itself gets 2 of them. This is because, even though it caused many an eye roll, I did like Daniel and the message behind it as a whole wasn't terribad.
