    (2.5) I’ve read all of Lamott’s nonfiction, and am quite fond of her rambly theological memoirs. Although this is probably one of her two weakest books, her fans will want to read it anyway. The overall theme is a bit loose and the personal anecdotes seem tired and/or thin on the ground, e...

    For me, Anne Lamott's nonfiction books on living in faith (and I don't mean denominational Faith) are not individual volumes but one continuing narrative. I mean this as a compliment. True, some books are slighter than others, either literally or figuratively, but all are needed and welcome. If you'...

    I must admit that this is my first book that I've read by her, but I really, really loved it. It was exactly what I needed to her. This world could definitely use more mercy and kindness....

    Every time Anne Lamott releases a book, it is somehow just what I needed to read. I definitely struggle with forgiving people, and I do fully grasp that the only one hurt by this is me. (People should never be allowed to keep hurting you, and one of the ways they can do that is if you keep dwelling ...

    I generally read anything this author writes but even if I didn't the title in this one made it a must read. This world needs more mercy and compassion, it is I feel sorely lacking. Although I found this offering more scattered, less concentrated than her usual works, some of what she talks about ju...

    Just okay. Maybe me, maybe her, but nothing special about this one....

    Lamott's books are always hit or miss with me. Even her misses are good for me to read, like plain oatmeal can nourish the body, even if it doesn't do much for the soul, but here, in Hallelujah Anyway, she has hit it out of the park. Her writings on faith tend towards the autobiographical, a memoir ...

    Anne Lamott's books are so comforting. Even when they're challenging, they are challenging in a comforting way, like a long-time, trusted friend. In the challenging times in which we live, it is comforting to know someone like Anne Lamott struggles with the same stuff I struggle with, that so many o...

    I loved this book as I have all of Anne Lamott's books. She is so imperfectly perfect! Real Christianity here for us to relate to. This is one I will read over and over. The only flaw was she never said how she worked out her problems with her son....

    This is what I get for rushing to load my Kindle before vacation. I though it said from the author of "THE Help." Oh the power of a tiny article! This author wrote a book called "Help..." not "THE Help."Anyway, the wordy first person testimony didn't work for me. It came across as condescending. I t...
