This was my first Audiobook and I feel I may have been spoiled! The narrator was captivating and the story splendid. I am delving into this new world to make an otherwise boring commute to a new job more enjoyable. I didn't know that I would dread pulling into the parking lot at work or look for ways to make the drive longer to hear more of the story!
I highly recommend this story!
This book was extremely well written, and brought to life the anguish experienced by teens facing sexual identity crisis'. This is a must read for anyone working or living with adolescents.
The perfect combo, a compelling story on both a personal and historical level that is brought to life by a wonderful voice.
Ok, when I first started listening to this book I was really annoyed by the person who was reading the story. But after a half hour or so I realized how great this guy was and how much he brought to the story. In fact, Icouldn't wait to get in my car to hear the next part. Has all the things I love in a story, including history and believable characters dealing with ordinary and extraordinary circumsntances. This is the best book I've heard or read in a very long time and will be looking to purchase other books by this author.
I enjoyed listening to this book. The reader was great. The subject is something I had no knowledge of. The story was engaging. It takes place over several generations. It was a good ending which is so much more satisfying that the "sudden end" of many novels.
Immigration lawyer in Kansas City. I like Character driven dramas, fantasy (monsters, magic and witches oh my!) and coming of age stories. Favs include: The Book Thief, The Game of Throne series, Harry Potter Series, Dresden Files, Nightside series, anything by Neil Gaimen, 100 Years of Solitude.
This was a very interesting book. At times very funny at time very difficult to listen to. I really liked the narrator and he kept the story moving along at a nice pace.
This was an excellent read. I thought it was well written, informative, as well as extremely entertaining. All together a great book. I did feel however it was a bit wordy for an audio. I would recomend the book but in the abridged version. You will not lose anything by listening to the abridged version, if anything it might improve your experience with this book.
