This was so refreshing! I have read so many young adult romance books I almost forgot there was more to look forward to than a kiss good night! This book is well written and the character development is deep and meaningful. This story is well put together and a page turner I could hardly put it down! The love story is great but the life story is even better. This book makes you realize that life’s most important moments are in the struggles and details that pass by in each day.
I can't believe I used a credit for this! I could not listen to it. What started out as a greatly engaging story, quickly turned into the most graphic sexual descriptions I have heard in all of my reading. I tried fast-forwarding, turning down the volume, etc. But finally I just turned it off. Those parts were not needed for the story.
Counselor with eclectic taste, I enjoy all types of fiction, dark, strange and twisted things, humor and explicitly.
Wonderful and one of the best audio book ever...I truly recommended this for any age or gender whether you like historical fiction or something else, anyone can enjoy this story. The narration is brilliant with well developed characters and just an all around beautiful tale that I was oh so sorry to see end; I'll definitely listen again
I listen to audible books to be entertained. And this book held my attention through hours of work. I loved the narration and how the story unfolded. I would listen to it again. I didn't mind some of the vulgarity. The story gave you a real sense of what circus life would be like behind the scene. Colorful, gritty, and raw.
I'm only half way through the book and I can't stop listening....there's something magical about the circus in the 1920-30's depression era.
This is definitely an ADULT ONLY book...there are some sections of adult content that children and some teens should not hear. Some people who reviewed this book used those sections to based their decision for not liking it, but i think it gives the book a more realistic feel and some of them are funny...well the made me laugh.
Really enjoyed this book, wasn't too sure about it in the beginning, but the book shocked me and made me laugh!
I think this book was good, but the suspense was highly lacking. If it hadn't been for the forward (which was a scene from the very end of the book), I'm not sure there would have been much interest on my part at all. The narrators were alright, but lacked good character voices. All in all though, I still enjoyed it. A fun little book.
I was only really interested in listening to this book due to the high praise of many of my co-workers(who happen to be female) and their chit chat about the book. I took a chance after listening to the brief sample recording and I will say that I enjoyed this book from the start. I thought this would be like any Nicholas Sparks book and just be predictable and sappy to the end, with maybe a few main characters dying in between. I was way off the mark, it's a very descriptive book from both perspectives utilizing 2 narrators to read the same character...his young self from the past, and his older self from the present. I was not only moved by this book, but I really felt for him throughout the story...I usually listen to thrillers/supernatural/mysteries but this one stood out like no other. It's def. worth a credit.
I've been listening to books on CD etc. for several years and found this to be one of the best books I've ever listened to. You won't be disappointed.
This book is narrated quite nicely by two men. They did a great job. I, however, was completely annoyed by the musical transitions. However, I would listen to it again.
