I have enjoyed the O magazines that I have purchased before. I am sure I will these also, but the first magazine has still not arrived. The price is great however. I look for it any day now.
[[ASIN:B00079RO7G O, The Oprah Magazine (1-year)
It's OK.. Actually, I prefer "Vanity Fair."
OLD WOMEN WILL *LOVE* THIS MAGAZINE!!
IF I LIVED IN A WORLD WHERE I DIDN'T KNOW OPRAH EXISTED AND JUST SAW THIS MAGAZINE SOMEWHERE LIKE ON THE GROUND OR IN THE TRASH, I WOULD ASSUME THE "O" IN "O MAGAZINE" STOOD FOR "OLD"
WHY? BECAUSE THIS MAGAZINE IS FULL OF STORIES AND LIES AND MYTHS, MOSTLY ABOUT TECHNOLOGY, TO TERRORIZE AND FRIGHTEN OLD WOMEN INTERSPERSED WITH TONS OF ADVERTISEMENTS FOR PRODUCTS THEY NEED TO BUY TO STOP THE AGING PROCESS (TO THAT I SAY "GOOD LUCK!" LOL!)
I HAVE BEEN BUYING THIS MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION FOR MY MOM FOR THE PAST 5 YEARS, MOSTLY BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO GET HER, BUT SHE LOVES IT AND RECEIVING THIS IN THE MAIL EACH MONTH IS PROBABLY THE BIGGEST PERK FOR HER. SO IN SUMMATION I GUESS BUY THIS IF YOU WANT A GOOD CHEAP YEAR-ROUND GIFT FOR AN OLD LADY YOU LOVE BUT DONT KNOW MUCH ABOUT!!
It is decent, but...
What I found to be a total letdown was the complete absence of bikini or lingerie photos of Ms. Winfrey. Other than that, all the recipes for low-calorie desserts were fabulous.
I thought this would be a great mag, but have been disappointed and wouldn't renew. Most of the fashion recommendations are too expensive for me or any of my friends or family. The advice is nothing new. No great tips or tidbits. Overall, I expected more from Oprah.
This is a typical magazine. Lots of ads. Simple mainstream articles. I glance at it and give it to the local hospital. It is good for people who don't have the energy to concentrate but want a distraction.
My only complaint is that I have still not rceived my Oprah magazine and considering that I paid for this in the middle of December, I am a little disappointed as today is February 12th. Hopefully it will be here soon.
PS I don't hate the magazine, actually I really like it, but would like to be able to read it.
why is she on the cover every time???
This magazine is not interesting at all....Actually it is very boring and I'm a big fan of the show. Oprah is on the cover of every magazine ??? Why? I will not be ordering this again ,it is a waste of money.
Magazine Is Sent Unwrapped
Great magazine, but for some reason Hearst send it unwrapped - not even in an paper envelope. As a result magazine often arrives in mail with dog ears on the pages or creases on the cover before I've even had a chance to touch it, let alone read it. Not to mention, without being able to tell if anyone else read it before it arrived...very disappointed.
if yoou want advertisements, this is for you
There is probably 300 pages in this magazine, and 3 that are articles. This is one of the worst "magazines" i have ever come across. If you have no interest in learning or reading and love advertisements, then this is the magazine for you!
