If you could change one thing!

Post by DShore »

If you could change one thing about the book, what would it be? It could be a character, a different event turnout or a whole different start to begin with.

There isn't anything I would change. I thought the book was decent.

I would have enjoyed more photos.

I wouldn't change anything because every story was meant to be told in its own way.

Latest Review: "That Place of Knowledge" by Philip Alan Shalka

Post by Ljessup »

I think the book was fantastic as it was! I don't think I would change anything about it because it flowed nicely and all tied together beautifully. :D
I love the question though. I have had some books that I wished I could change a bit, but I also think that is more about personal preference because the changes I wanted to make might not be as great to others! Nice idea!

I don't think I would change anything because this is someone's truth. If we were talking about a fiction book, it's always fun to think about what we might change, but with non-fiction I think we embrace what we are given.

The book is interesting and well told though for the fact that I hate dangerous environments, I would change the setting maybe.

The $10,000 krugerrand loss would not have occurred, or it would have been returned. But it was inspiring how it did not impact the family's attitude toward the trip. Nonetheless, there's still part of me that wonders if it's just hidden away somewhere and it will show up! If not, I hope that whoever ended up with it used it for something good.

I think that every story is unique and has a specific purpose of it to be written. So I think this author designed it in this manner for a specific course. Nothing much I would have changed.

I don't want to change the book because evrey writer has his personal view and know what direction he want to give to his story.

I think it is okay the way it is. I wouldn't change a thing. I liked even the cover.
