Is “Oprah’s Book of Life” Worth Reading?

When Oprah Winfrey sat down to write the book, she had every intention of writing a volume that would reflect her complete love and devotion for everyone that she has ever met. It would be about the people she had loved and were close to her and everything that they have been through.

Her intention was to include all her best friends, her schoolmates, her children, the people she was never able to see in person and the people that she had worked with and become friends with. What she did not want was a book that reflected her being more than popular. She wanted a book that was a reflection of who she was.

The book is not that at all. There are things in it that have nothing to do with the people around her. Oprah’s book does not really feel like a book written by the woman herself. It feels like a series of anecdotes about the people that she met and became friends with.

I read this book because I’m the pageant winners and who knows my life better than I do. If you’re not a pageant winner, you may not have been able to get into Oprah’s book.

Of course Oprah was not a pageant winner, but she was a very successful author and the fact that she wrote about people like Oscar Meyer and Jim Beam helped people think that women who worked hard could also be a good writer. You could tell that she was not going to be afraid to let people see what they thought of her. That is why I liked her so much.

In this book, she talks about how she would call around the house, see if her brother wanted to do something like not to have her parents see her walk down the stairs, and give her phone calls while she was at work. She was just really honest about what she felt and said.

I guess one of the things that made the book so refreshing was the fact that it didn’t have an “I Love You” after it. Oprah did that at the end of her book “A Smile”. I felt like I was reading an autobiography when I was finished the book. I had a new feeling that I couldn’t shake off.
