This is a great little introduction to the Storycorps Project which records people interviewing loved ones about their experiences in order to archive them as part of our public history. Such a great idea! And I really enjoyed the selections in this piece.
Several of these stories brought tears to my eyes. Renewed my faith in the goodness of the world.
NIce to hear real stories from real people particularly in their own voices. The interaction between family members was especially touching in some cases.
By its very nature, the audio is better because the people featured speak not only in their own words but in their individual voices.
The interviews and the diversity.
When you feel down or wants to see how love overcomes difficult situations, this is certainly a go to recording.
Variety of settings and people.
Voices of Love.
An inveterate audio book listener.
Knowing that it was real people telling about their real experiences and relationships.
The interaction between the elderly woman who was slipping into Alzheimer's and her beloved who professed and reassured her of his undying love and devotion to her. And I believed him. It was like "The Notebook" in real life.
His awe and reverence for the stories of real people.
Come and listen to a story.... a real story......
I would listen again when I need that reminder of how good the simple moments in life can be.
It wasn't as much the actual narrator as it was the people being interviewed. I loved hearing the stories from the people who actually lived them.
I did listen to it all in one sitting. With it being abridged, it was only about an hour long and I listened to it over my lunch break one day.
This is an awesome listen, we need to hear these stories to help stay grounded.
the realness of the stories
All of them
Yes. It's a good book. And it gives you good advice. I recommend listening to this audio book.
Listening is an Act of Love allows one to sit back and be reminded of what is important in life. I plan to have my entire family listen to it during the holiday season. Why keep it to myself? This is a perfect gift and I thank you Audible.
