The story and the narration by Ken Howard.
Healing Faith. Both have a spiritual element based on forgiveness.
I wasn't sure what how I was going to like the book when I read it. Once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down. It had so much to offer on so many levels that I can't wait to pick it up and read it again.
Didn't realize when I purchased the Audio book that it does not include an entire story within the story. Really well done, but you may need to purchase the actual book to get the entire story.
I have never encountered this with audible before, but the recording quality was terrible. The sound had an echo and at times I could hear other noises in the background that sounded like another recording of sorts.
Compelling, emotional story of self-denial that finds redemptive insight for a protagonist that is also hard for the reader to accept. Poor recording quality
The performance was good, unfortunately, there were voices in the background. It sounded like someone was "performing" a book too close to him. I found it distracting at times, sometimes so much so, that I needed to re-listen a part. 😕
If you're not the lead dog, then the view from behind never changes
No, I wouldn't necessarily say that the audio version is much better. In fact, I did like the book better because of all the details that made the story so great. But I did enjoy listening to it as well.
That this could have happened, and it probably has happened in real life. Twins have a very unique experience to share that most of the general population doesn't. But more often than not, I have found with the twins I know, and I know several, that even though they may be identical, they are very much different in so many ways just as other siblings are. And this much is true, quit vividly reveals just that.
I really enjoyed Ken Howard's reading. Since I had read the book already prior to listening to the audio, you get this sound in your head that you develop that you think the character's voice sounds like. Ken Howard was spot on with that voice I had developed in my head of Dominick.
Tough question. The obvious choice is Dominick, but Thomas rightly so runs a close second. Actually I truly enjoyed every character in the book except for the guards.
I know this much is true. That these kind of situations frequently unfold in real life. And while it is tragic, I mean all of it, the mom, Ray the step-dad, Dessa, Joy, and Ralph, not just Thomas, I'm truly glad that Dominick finally found happiness in spite of all the pain.
