I really enjoyed the development of the characters, the timeperiod backdrop, and the story. Some wonderfully surprising twists kept it very interesting. I loved all of the characters, even the hateful ones. I would love to see a sequel about how some of the lives continued to evolve.
I am so glad I listened to this book, rather than read it. I loved the different characters and their voices and manner of speaking. I felt like they were sitting right with me, telling their stories. This is a truly wonderful book that everyone should hear.
The narrators in this book are outstanding. They really bring the story to life, and one can imagine the story through their eyes. The best book I've listened to in a long, long time.
This is one of those few books I couldn't wait to continue listening to. As the story is told, I got more intertwined and involved with the characters. I finished it this morning and continue to think about it. Loved the characters and the readers. I'm glad I listened to it rather than read it - the readers bring the characters to life. A great book to get lost in.
I never write reviews, but was compelled for this book. By far, one of the best books I've listened to. Extremely well-written, wonderful character development, and both humorous and touching. Incredibly read by the variety of readers. I couldn't wait to get to it each day. Highly, highly recommend!!
