After reading the excerpt, I'll definitely be reading this book. I'd love to win a signed copy of it.

I would rather read about someone "larger than life" then be one. I'm more of a homebody enjoying my pugs and grandkids. Maybe to them I'm larger than life.

Suzanne Arruda: Thank you for your post and your request for feedback.
Here's my opinion. Perhaps when we get down to it, there aren't any characters or real people who are larger than life. They're larger than what we expect in life.
They're larger than what we anticipate, are comfortable with, can readily process, and conveniently deal with. Through their words and deeds, through their very existence, they challenge our assumptions, both individual and social. Intentionally or not, they expand our thinking, which can result in expanding our actions.
And thank goodness such people exist! Both fiction and reality would be so much duller without them.

We all dream about being a heroic figure. A person who knows no fear, but few of us want to be faced with that situation. If confronted we do what we must do and that makes us 'larger than life.

I never knew how I would react in a real emergency. I don't move quickly. I like to think things through. However, last month we were driving 70 mph on Route 70 in Kansas and my husband (the driver) fell asleep. Instead of screaming (which I wanted to do), I kept reassuring him that he was all right and we were okay until he got the car under control. It seemed to last forever.

Sorry, I hit post before I was finished. I think we all have the ability to be larger than life - even in little things.

As in many of the examples you gave,
people doing what needed to be done
is what made them special. Being
recognized for it made them larger
than life. Live your life to the fullest,
that will qualify you.
