    One thought on “We Will Survive: True Stories of Encouragement, Inspiration, and the Power of Song”

    1. This seemed like the most interesting of the titles available the first time I looked into the Kindle First program. I usually love true life stories--I'll sometimes read just those parts of magazine articles and skip the rest of the text--but this book and I just didn't click. I wasn't encouraged or inspired and the tie ins with the song felt forced a lot of the time. It's been sitting on my Kindle not quite half read for weeks now, and I have no desire to finish, so I'm giving up on it.

    2. This is a collection of survivor's stories read by Gloria Gaynor (and includes her own triumphs over the shiz storm we call life and the audio has her music too which just sounded creepy because I listen to my audiobooks at 2x speed. ;) )Some of the stories were touching, and some had me tearing up. But they were very uneven because not everyone's story was well written. As they all linked to Gloria Gaynor's song, some of the author's went a bit overboard trying to work in the lyrics (like the w [...]

    3. This is such an inspiring, heartwarming book!! It's somewhat along the lines of the 'Chicken Soup for the Soul' books, with around 40 inspiring stories of survival, all tied together by the song 'I Will Survive'. Although this collection of short stories is perfect for a coffee table book that you can pick up and read when you don't have a lot of time but need something uplifting, I devoured it in one setting!! I'll definitely be buying a paperback of this to keep around the house, oh, and an ex [...]

    4. I anticipated this book being very uplifting and inspiring. It was not, for me. Although I realize the details of people's tragedies were important for the stories, I felt they overwhelmed the "survival" aspects of the stories. I would have liked the connection with the song to be more overtly stated. Also, the writing was often confusing.

    5. Goodit was enjoyable to read. makes u realize how PRECIOUS family and friends can be. also to enjoy everyday of your life

    6. I was pleased to read this book through the Kindle First program, and when I read the advanced reviews, I thought this would be a great read. As a compilation of stories, the writing styles vary as each writer told their story of survival. Some of the stories, like "Evelyn on Top," "Annie Twice Chosen," and "A Car Ride to Heaven" were amazing, inspirational takes of overcoming amazing adversity. Others, like "Mother Cub Instinct," illustrate smaller, everyday mountains climbed by women who found [...]

    7. I thought this was an interesting concept, people's stories of how I Will Survive inspired and changed their lives.I am not sure how to explain it, but maybe the stories were too short. They were ultra positive, which isn't a problem. Positivity is good. But the stories were too short on substance and just focused on the ends of the journey. Most stories gave a page or 2 of background then just went right into gushing love of the song and how it carried them. But nothing inbetween. I wanted more [...]

    8. It wasn't what I expected. I thought maybe it would be her memoir but it was more. The only reason I gave it three stars is because I thought the stories were about falling down then getting up again, yet I felt not every story belong in the book. Some seem unfinished I keep rewinding the recording because I thought I'd missed it, but it simply wasn't there. There were some stories that were heart wrenching and I had to dry my tears while I was driving because it was hindering my sight. Another [...]

    9. As with any collection of stories from different authors, the writing quality varies, but it is apparent most are not professionals. Some of the stories seem a little trite and unimportant when placed up against writers who survived the Holocaust or genocide in Africa, but then, I imagine most of our troubles seem insignificant when compared to that. "I will survive" is a phrase that can't help but make you feel a little more powerful, a little more in control of your life. It's no surprise the [...]

    10. This was the first Kindle First book I received when I started Prime. I was somewhat skeptical of the premise but was hopeful. It ended up being an okay book - interesting stories, some of them very touching, but not much substance. Each time the writer would mention the song, I was no longer as interested. Don't get me wrong, "I Will Survive" is a great song. I simply had a hard time believing that all these writers were REALLY thinking about that particular song at that particular moment in th [...]

    11. As a lover of music, and I have an understanding how our lives are always connected to a particular song, this was the reason why I read this.(.we have all danced around our handbag to "I will survive" countless times, I would guess.) This was an inspiring story, of love and survival in tough times. (no spoilers) A single parent bringing up children is hard enough To come through it is even tougher.

    12. I really enjoyed this collection of survivor stories. This was truly inspirational. At this moment, I have been dealing with some personal drama that has made me give up hope. It was truly a blessing that I found this novel as a Kindle First novel.This book shows that we can all survive horrid situations. This is a good book if you're wanting an inspirational novel that shows the strength of survivors or horrid situations.

    13. As many others this book title was the most interesting titles of kindle first read.I enjoyed it in the beginning but not all the stories are interesting and encouraging to continue. I found that I was forcing myself to continue reading the book but at I point I gave up and skipped. I might go back to find if the rest of the stories worth it.

    14. Very empowering book, especially if you are in a bad moment in life and need to get up. I liked most of the stories in the book. A few of them really touched me, others were just interesting and a few of them should not be included in the book (that's why I give 4 stars instead of 5). Very uplifting.

    15. Not what I expectedthe song I will survive is my all time favorite song! I had high hopes for the book but there were only truly a couple of the stories that I felt embodied what book could have been! while all the stories were true survival stories the way the incorporated the song just didn't work for me! good effort.

    16. This was a free book from Prime. It was a quick read. It's a collection of stories about people who found inspiration from Gloria Gaynor's song "I Will Survive" while going through tough times in their lives. All the stories are short and written by the person themselves. It's an okay read.

    17. I probably would give it a 2.5 if possible. I enjoyed the true stories of people who have survived terrible circumstances. Some of their stories were very well written, and some were not, that is not to take away of the stories themselves, it just made it harder to read. If the song "I will survive" means something personal to you then this book will be a big hit.Peace

    18. I have always liked the song "I Will Survive", so I was immediately interested in this book when I read the description. We Will Survive contains 40 true stories of people inspired by Gloria Gaynor's song. Heart-wrenching, inspiring and uplifting, it is a wonderful book. So glad I had the opportunity to read it via Kindle First.

    19. 40 emotional stories is a daunting list to work through, with the most traumatic and spectacular events placed early on the excitement seems in descending order. You can usually get a feel for the vibe of a story early on, and it might be better to skip on through some parts. The audiobook includes relevant songs occasionally after a story.

    20. Disco music may be dead, but its queen is alive and kicking.with an inspirational anthology that celebrates the tryumph of human resiliency. askmissa/2013/12/06/will-s

    21. Uplifting stories of surpassing tragedy, fear & all other hardships.The stories cover every part of the human condition and the ability to survive whatever hardship comes your way . . . Sometimes with the strength of Christ, and sometimes without.

    22. Some of the stories were good, a few were great and none were terrible. I did enjoy all the stories put together though, it was rather uplifting.

    23. It is what it isAs the title states, it's about the will men and women have to overcome some very traumatic situations. Easy, quick read.

    24. 9 inspirational survivor stories. Each individual was touched in some way by Gloria Gaynor's song, "I Will Survive". Good, easy reading for the holidays which can sometimes be challenging.

    25. Too sentimental. I can't keep going. I do still like the idea that people have found the song to be a source of strength, though.

    26. Great read, interesting, inspiring stories by people who've survived a huge variety of challenges, all connected by that Gloria Gaynor anthem "I Will Survive".
