Never heard anything quite like it.
The glass blowers daughter.
It's the perfect title
I always recommend this book to everyone.
When the book started I felt that it was going to be a book that I regretted purchasing. As the characters developed and the author began to weave interplaying story lines into the book I was hooked. I just loved it. A good read by an excellent author and Lincoln Hoppe never disappoints with his well-thought narrative.
I too have never been so inpsired to write a review. This book is amazing. The prose is stunning. I would give it ten stars if that option existed.
I was initially very grossed out when the author describes the car accident, but the story is fascinating and you don't really know where it is going to end up. Just get past the first chapter. well written and spoken book.
While well written, this is an absolutely pointless novel. Little more than an exercise in endurance. I'm sorry I wasted time on it.
I liked this story okay since it had a very interesting permise.
However, I had two pretty major complaints. The main character (the man who gets burned at the very beginning of the story), is basically full of self loathing, incredibly pessimistic, and kind of brings you down. Everyone else in the story helped balance his intense (albeit understandably considering the drastic change to his life) negativity. I almost stopped the story from that alone, however, I hoped that the story ended on a happy note so I kept listening.
My second major complaint is the narrator. He read so incredibly slow that I'm sure the story could've been a little as 12 hours long. I use the Audible app to listen to my audiobooks so I was able to speed up his narration speed. Most of the time, I listened to his story at 1.5 speed, but all other times, I listened to it at twice the narration speed. It was disappointing.
