Not what I expected…if you are over 30, this book might not be for you


Odd(ly) Enough: Standing Out When the World Begs You To Fit In From the first use of the word “legiterally”, I just had a difficult time reading Carolanne Miljavac’s “Odd(Ly) Enough”.  Miljavac used this word in nearly every chapter. Does “legiterally” mean seriously or literally–or both or neither?  According to one definition I found online, it means “something that is both literally true and legitimate at the same time. to show or declare to be legitimate or proper, well in in a literal manner or sense or used to acknowledge that something is not literally true but is used for emphasis or to express strong feeling”.

While the message of purpose comes across in her book, I think you have to be ADHD to read it.  I also think 20-30 year olds may benefit more from her advice.  I know you will read the other reviews and disagree.

The redeeming quality is Miljavac’s testimony and her purpose for writing the book.  When her niece was diagnosed with cancer and later passed away, it filled Miljavac with purpose and gave her a voice.  Her niece inspired her to write.

If you are young and lost in the world, “Odd(Ly) Enough” may help you find yourself and God’s purpose in your life.  Judging from the number of positive reviews, people were able to get past the vocabulary and the hyperactivity it requires to read past the introduction.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Barbour Publishing, Inc. I was not required to write a review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
