The story is great, and very well narrated. Loved the interplay between the old and young characterx in the story. The occasional music was unnecessary though, a bit irritating at times.
I absolutely recommend this book.
The story, the narrative, the grand sweep of a long bygone era (not so unlike ours today) left me wanting for more. At the end, I laughed, and I cried, and started a second "listen".
My only peeve, was that their should have been a third narrator for the female characters of the story (but then that might have brought the narration up towards the "Radio Staging" level of audio-drama's.
I consider this an epic story. Spans of a period of time. This one I would definitely recommend the audiobook for the fact that it is written in two different time periods and it is hard to tell which time is which. The audiobook has a different narrator for both time periods. Excellent character development. Good laugh and cry book.
I read alot of my books while I am running and this book made for great company during some of my 2 hour runs on the weekends. I was completely engrossed by the story... who knew that a story about the circus could be so entertaining?
This was an absolutely wonderful story and beautifully told. Great narration and super production from beginning to end. This is the audio book that got me hooked.
Tell us about yourself!
This is one of the best books I have ever 'read'. Not only was it a great story but the old school circus background was intriquing as well. Characters are people you would like to know. I did not want it to end.
