One life. 6 words, what's yours? : six-word memoirs from Smith magazine Reviews
If you could sum up your whole viewpoint on life in just six words, what would those words be? That's the question this book asks of the contributors. The resulting phrases are at times funny, sometimes inspiring and often poignant. So what are my six words???Kept smiling. Kept dreaming. Kept going.three and a half stars
Not quite sure what shelf to put this on as it is a really clever gathering together of six word sentences in which people sum up their lives but it is not just humourous. There are some really tragically sad sentences, some totally bizarre and weird ones, some embittered and harsh ones and then some ingeniously witty and insightful ones. The collection is made up of celebrities of all persuasions and flavours, actors and musicians, writers and artists but there are also a huge horde of ordinary folk like you or me....sorry that is a bit of an assumption...maybe you don't see yourselves as ordinary and indeed I suppose that is the wonder of this collection. Each sentence encapsulates an aspect of the writer and therefore in that small amount of words his/her uniqueness is enshrined. I have begun to attempt to compose one for myself, it is quite addictive. However I can see my line changing week by week, or indeed on a bad day hour by hour. I won't quote many because there are so many brilliant ones from every angle but I think just one will suffice to be going along with. This is not the funniest, or the cleverest or the saddest or the anythingest but it is good for me at the moment' Can't read all the time. Bummer'....Rina BanderI totally feel her pain
