Book Review: Walk Like You Have Somewhere To Go

I recently became part of a program called Book Sneeze run by Thomas Nelson Publishing. They send me a book for free and I read and review it. This is my second book review so far.

Walk Like You Have Somewhere To Go by Lucille O’Neal
In this book Lucille O’Neal, mother of NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal, shares the story of her life. Lucille’s life today is a far cry from growing up in New Jersey where most of her extended family lived in a single house. In this book, O’Neal shares how she went from that house in New Jersey, to being a single teenage mother, an unhappy Army wife and finally how Shaquille became an NBA star and how her life has changed because of that. Throughout the story of her journey O’Neal shares her struggles, her faith and her heart.

This book is easy to read, the tone is informal and conversational. While it was interesting to learn about Lucille’s life, as well as Shaquille’s, this book was not a riveting “page-turner.” O’Neal does a good job of telling her story, conveying her thoughts and feelings as her life changed over the years, but this book is not a “must read” or a best seller. If you’re interested in a quick read and learning more about Lucille or Shaquille’s history, this book would be great for you, but don’t expect it to be a life changing, awe-inspiring story.

**Among other places, this book can be purchased at Amazon and Christian Book Distributors**
