I hear voices. But maybe that's because there's always an Audible book in my ear.
And I'll never be one. But, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. Loved hearing the history. And chia seeds have become a routine part of my diet. Educational without being stuffy.
When non-fiction really works, for me it's because there's a magical combination of a well-paced great story, good solid characters and a perfect narrator. That is precisely what "The Boys in the Boat" is all about.
I don't need to review the plot. It's all there in the intro. This is the best way I can describe this book: if you couldn't put "Seabiscuit" down, this is your book. It's a wonderful little slice of history that's written and narrated in a compelling way. If you have a long car trip this summer, this is the perfect book for a mixed audience.
Laura Hillenbrand writes the most amazing non-fiction. I found myself glued to my iPod during the races. I didn't want to stop listening. I feel like she is simply one of the most talented writers around. This is a thoroughly enjoyable book in every regard.
