Recensione

e-SCRIBES, UK - November 10, 2016 "We find this a skillful, thoughtful and deeply moving novel... and it's an inspiration to anyone who knows someone in this situation, or whose physical life as they knew it has been unexpectedly curtailed. This book is a life lesson from which we will all extract our own, differing, narratives." INDIEREADER - February 15, 2016 "BECAUSE is a deeply moving, emotionally-powerful tale of intertwined lives, and of finding strength to go on in the face of utter despair. There are multiple stories braided into the main plot, as each of the characters has a voice and a tale of their own. Robert's story, therefore, is reflected in the stories of those he's helped as well as those who want to help him, giving the book a multifaceted perspective and adding deeper emotional and philosophical layers to the plot. This is a heartbreaking but ultimately uplifting book, and there isn't a character who doesn't have a substantial, painful tragedy to wrestle with... BECAUSE is a book full of both emotional intensity and real philosophical and psychological insight." MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW - Small Press Bookwatch November 2015 Issue "A deftly crafted novel and an absorbing read from beginning to end, "because" is a compelling and thoroughly entertaining novel that documents author Jack Langedijk's truly exceptional storytelling skills. Very highly recommended for community library General Fiction collections..." KIRKUS REVIEWS MAGAZINE - August 15, 2015 Issue "...Langedijk has lots to say about courage, compassion, redemption, and self-worth... Meditations on some of life's biggest questions as told through some harrowing experiences."

Sinossi

Robert had reached the summit of many mountains. His adventures took him to unimaginable heights, yet his greatest achievements were not in conquering these majestic beauties, but in his ability to reach people in need. That is, until he's the one facing the toughest climb of his life.

Roberto Sanchez is living the dream; one could say the man had it all. He is blessed with a beautiful wife and daughter who complete him. A career that reaches at-risk kids that brings him true joy. Then a tragic accident leads Roberto to a chasm of dark despair. Although his interventions have reached many, he found he is incapable of helping himself off the edge of a cliff, jeopardizing his career, his marriage, and himself.

because takes us on a journey of two Roberts as he struggles to find a way to once again believe.

5.0 su 5 stelle Stunning art and a gift to humanity 30 settembre 2014
Di Monica LaSarre, Author - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I feel strongly that ten years from now we'll be hearing Jack Langedijk’s name often and recalling the experience of reading the first of his many published works, Because, like we recall a poignant life memory. The story of Robert Sanchez is heart-wrenchingly beautiful, unprecedentedly attention-commanding, and from me it has earned the compliment every good author attains to, which is: "I couldn't put this book down!"

This is not a simple story. The drama is complicated, the story is revealed subtly. The dimensions of Robert's past and present, the intricacies of his relationships, were revealed in an ever-deepening cascade of naked truths until I, the reader, felt so deeply entrenched in all that made up the layers of Robert's life that I simply had to finish reading. I rushed headlong and with utter abandon towards the ending, with an aching need to know that this beautiful person would be OK in the end. You'll have to read it yourself to find out. Read the first chapter and you'll be hooked. You too will need to know that Robert and Monique will be OK.

If you read one book this year, one book that you will think over and mull over and allow to seep slowly and deeply into the marrow of your soul, let this book be it. And then, when you've finished reading it, spend some time to find the "Robert" in your own life. There's a little bit of “Because” in all of us, I believe, and I owe Mr. Langedijk a debt of gratitude for the gift this book has brought to my own life.

Should be inspiring but felt way too forced. And how did this guy ever become a mountain climber anyway? It was way too long and way too predictable. It seemed as though I have read a story like this so many times before.

Jack Langedijk sure knows how to write a powerful, inspiring and captivating novel.
A novel where we believe it was written for us, and at the perfect time in our lives.
I believe this book needs to be in schools, through a story to teach our children lessons and values.
Through Roberts journey we realize we have all traveled through the same journeys, learning the lessons of life. The lessons become like "Oprah's light bulb moments". We learn we are all human, we all have pain,failures and triumph's. Not only are we transported to Robert and Monique's world, we are also transported back to our own. The AH HA moment...
The book captivated me, I couldn't put it down.
I learned a lot about myself, through Roberts life.
I wondered through the book how it would end, and it wasn't disappointing.
BRAVO JACK A LANGEDIJK
I can't wait for another book.

I really appreciated Robert's process and his final willingness to be honest with himselfand choose Life. The development of the kids was inspiring also. My teacher says, "all we need to do is say yes when Life offers you choices." For the first 40 years of my life I had no idea that I had choices. When I learned that....scarey and freeing...an amazing gift. Thank you for creating a story that so clearly shows such crucial lessons, hard as they may be, that saves lives. Heather Cowan
5.0 su 5 stelle A must read - Because ...... 4 gennaio 2015
Di Jane Bradley - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Langedijk captures the essence of understanding and perseverance along with tolerance, belief in one's self and others, and finding the real meaning of tests and challenges set before each one of us in our own lives. This book is written with passion and deep commitment to finding answers and solutions, while allowing the reader to develop their own thoughts and interpretations. Because ... is a MUST read by anyone who finds lack of tolerance and acceptance an issue that needs addressing. Langedijk is clearly a deeply committed writer and brings the reader to tears and joy throughout this book as his tale of discovery and belief in the possible unfolds. Very hard to put it down!
