Item Description...
A collection of stories and ideas about the life of celebration that God gives us, this book offers a vision of life as a collection of bright and varied glimpses of hope and redemption and celebration, in and among the heartbreak and boredom and broken glass.

Publishers Description
Cold Tangerines is a collection of stories that celebrate the extraordinary moments hidden in our everyday lives. It is about God, and about life, and about the thousands of daily ways in which an awareness of God changes and infuses everything. It is about spiritual life, and about all the things that we have called nonspiritual life that might be spiritual after all. It is the snapshots of a young woman making peace with herself and her life, and trying to craft a life that captures the energy and exuberance we long for in the midst of the fear and regret and envy we all carry with us. It is both a voice of challenge and song of comfort, calling us upward to the best possible life, and giving us room to breathe, to rest, to break down and break through. Cold Tangerines offers bright and varied glimpses of hope and redemption, in and among the heartbreak And boredom and broken glass.

bookclub  Jan 14, 2010
I won't be very eloquent but straight forward...............the book was boring, the author was whinny and self obsorped and the entire book club disliked learn a little something with each book you read but this one really isn't worth it. Frustrating......didn't want to finish it but forced myself.
Refreshing  Jan 7, 2010
Cold Tangerines is written my a 30-something year old woman, Shauna Niequist. She writes about the lessons she has learned thus far in life - through faith, her parents, her husband, and motherhood. I loved this book! Her humor and ADD-ness, which I appreciated, really comes through in her writing. She wrote honestly about life's struggles. Her authenticity and humor were refreshing.
Excellent book  Oct 18, 2009
Very refreshing, easy read! Inspiring, fun book. Highly recommend for just a light read with some great reminders for living life to the fullest!
Amazing Book  Oct 17, 2009
O.k. so to be honest right from the get go, I am not into religious books. I am not into a book that houses God in a church, or uses God for excuses. But I am what you would call quite spiritual. That means many things to many people, but it's a general statement that's important for this book and for one reason only. This book talks about God all the time.

Yet because of her writing, I was ok with the fact that her religion is Christian, and mine is not. I was ok with the fact that she has a slightly different way of approaching her spirituality than I do. Once I crossed that bridge in the beginning chapters, I was in awe of her. Some of her stories I think will change my life. Perhaps lean me into a direction that is a little bit more of who I really am.

The way she contemplates her life is so complex, thoughtful, touching, riveting, hilarious, intense, vulnerable and most of all REAL.

The talent of this author has to do with her honesty about humanity. About the human experience. She is a fantastic authentic storyteller, and so each chapter is a chapter about her current life. Specific experiences that were either highly beautiful or very challenging, and she describes her process, her reactions and her meditations on each subject. How she made sense of it all.

Reading her book is like being in her mind and looking at the world directly through her lens. Now that's talent. There were times I laughed and, truly, times I cried. There were times where I had to put the book down to reflect, because one of her stories impacted my own life so intensely.

I would say that anyone who would not like this book would be those who are offended by her god. But I believe that is what balanced critical thinking is about when it comes to reading ~ opening yourself up to another person's life in a way that is inclusive to whatever works for you as a person. Leaving the stories or philosophy that is not relevant to your life, out.

Yet, she also states clearly in one of her sentences that she equates extreme religious fundamentalism to things like environmental destruction, so I'd have to be honest and say that this put me a bit at ease!!

So, those of you who hesitate because you're too liberal, too un-church going, too "alternative": just go for it. She'll touch you deeply if you keep your mind and heart open.
