I liked this book very much. I listened to it, at first with a bit of distance, then it drew me into the story. By the end I was twisted and conflicted just as the author wanted me to be.
C'est mon premier audiobook et il g?nial.
La notion de culpabilit? partag?e et personne y est tr?s bien d?velopp?e.
C'est livre qui vous touche.
Interesting book, descriptive. I wanted to listen to it before seeing the movie, but now that I've read it, I have no desire to view it! I just felt flat when it was finished.
Okay already...a movie...an 'important' theme...got it. However, there is nothing exceptional about the writing. I'm glad it wasn't stretched out into a 15 hour audiobook. You could do worse...but you could also do better.
I read books for pleasure or inspiration or knowledge of history or people. This was none of those. The writing, per se, was fine, even better than that probably, but there was a dull grey sky hanging over it all.
I enjoyed listening to this book - the story between a younger man and older woman was compelling - the fact that "the Kid" never really let go was sad - I never expected the story to go in the direction it did - I'm looking forward to seeing the movie now.
