I am a big fan of audiobooks, and this is one of the best. It is a terrific story, and the readers were fantastic. I would highly recommend it
I liked the story I thought it was good but it was a little boring at times especially in the beginning. Overall it's a good,easy listen.
I have been an audible listener for several years. This was my favorite book of all and the first review I have done. The story gets you engaged from the very beginning and never lets up. The character development was strong and the narrators were excellent. I could tell which chararacter was speaking just by the narrator's voice. It is a very enjoyable book to listen in the car and many times I found myself just sitting in the garage waiting for a chapter to end. Some parts were predictable but did not detract from the content. There are good and evil people in this story and I found myself cheering for and mad with the respective characters. I look forward to listening more from this author.
This was a truly engaging story. Not a complicated story line, but that's what I liked most about it. I enjoyed the two narrator perspectives, and I thought the narrators were both quite good. I am always seeking a nice long novel that keeps me engaged with the story 100% of the time; it's a rare treat to find one this enjoyable. Highly recommended!
I often 'buy' an audiobook based on other's reviews. This one did not live up to the hype. I liked the narrators, but I couldn't really get engaged with the characters. I'm not sure why this is a best seller.
I really enjoyed this one. If you have any elderly people in your life, it will make you want to sit and talk to them. The two different readers greatly adds realism to a story covering most of a life time.
Gruen does a masterful job capturing the complex emotions of being old, forgotten by loved ones and pandered to by caretakers. I thought the audio performances by the two readers were excellent.
The story was pretty good, but the story telling was very good. Brilliant work by the narrators. I enjoyed the older and younger gentlemen chiming in at different points in the main character's life.
This was a very enjoyable book. The reader was excellent, both the older character as well as his younger self. The content was interesting, and unusual.
I loved this book. I enjoyed having two readers to differentiate between the two ages of the main character. I always hope for a good read and this did not disappoint.
