PLAN B: Further Thoughts on Faith

Editorial Review - Kirkus - Jane Doe

Funny, acerbic reflections on faith and family during George W. Bush's first administration.Readers have long awaited Lamott's second book on spirituality (after Traveling Mercies, 1999), and it won't disappoint—or not too much. As before, Lamott charts her life as a deeply religious Christian and committed leftist, though she's no stereotypically pious Presbyterian. For example, she has ... Read full review

Editorial Review - Bookreporter.com - Cindy Crosby

"On my fortyninth birthday, I decided that all of life was hopeless, and I would eat myself to death." So begins PLAN B: Further Thoughts on Faith, a collection of delightfully honest and gritty essays from Salon.com columnist Anne Lamott.

My 50something-year-old stepmom LOVES Anne Lamott and loved this book. I really enjoyed _Bird By Bird_ (her book on writing), but think I'm not old enough to fully appreciate this one. Read full review

I really wanted to like this book because so many authors I love/respect hold Anne Lamott in high esteem. I haven't given up on Anne yet but I definitely gave up on this book (about half way through). Read full review

User Review  - Deb Finnegan - Goodreads

Again. I LOVE Ann Lamott. She writes with such honesty that I can almost feel her joy and sadness. For me, Ann Lamott has the best description and examples of grace I've ever heard. She's a Christian who isn't afraid to be real. Ann writes of struggles, failures, sickness and joy. Read full review

User Review  - Mary Milner - Goodreads

Some thought-provoking parts to this book. Ann Lamott is a little too granola-y for me, and I think I would have enjoyed the book more without all her moaning and groaning about George W. Bush---not that I am a George W. fan---but she really harps on this, and it gets old. Read full review
