Barely passed my senior year English class because of this, I hated reading this book so I just ditched my class 8 mondays in a row (mondays were quiz days) and took them all the same day after pulling an all nighter listening to this book on here. Book itself is horrible in my opinion. But great vocal performance
I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
Ok, this book is from 1987 and the narrator is better suited to a 1950s educational film but I did enjoy the book. It was too long by about 5 hours so if you much prefer a quick listen, don't start this one.
If you do get this book listen closely to the narrator. I don't think he speaks this fast, I believe the recording was edited to drop or reduce the pauses between words. It feels cut between each word.
Some of the dated material made me laugh. Some items were like flash backs of crazy memories. The ending wasn't entirely a surprise and it is just as important to listen to what is said as it is to listen to what isn't said. I probably won't listen again but I don't regret my listening time either. I finished knitting several pairs of slippers!
