All These Wonders: A Review

I recently read The Moth Presents: All These Wonders.  The Moth is a worldwide storytelling phenomenon.  At Moth events, people get up and tell their real-life stories.  The Moth's mission is to promote the art and craft of storytelling and to honor and celebrate the diversity and commonality of human experience.

The book is a compilation of stories that were told live, on stage, at The Moth, and adapted to the written page.  It includes forty-five true stories about risk, courage, and facing the unknown.

I really liked this book.  I loved the wide variety of true stories, and I especially loved that each one took 15 minutes or less to read.  This is definitely the kind of book that you can read in bits and spurts of down time.  I laughed, I cried, I groaned.  Most of all, I loved reading about extraordinary experiences otherwise ordinary people have had.  It was fascinating, and it reminded me that we can never know anyone's full story just by looking at them.

In addition to reading the book, you can listen to The Moth Radio Hour on the radio or via podcast, subscribe to The Moth's YouTube channel, attend a live event, or share your own story.  There's even a mobile app.

I received this book for free from the publisher through Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
