I don't know how they hired this man to read a book primarily told about a woman in this horrendously terrible voice. Do men think women's voices sound like men with a cold? Gross. Ruined the book.
Wonderfully descriptive, but too slow. These life stories might be appreciated more in separate servings.
"Fabulous book story author and now with Audiobooks I enjoy the performance by s gifted performer. I will look up other books by"
Because the entire experience of being groped onto Sudan and Oliver Ward's world was challenging and spectacular thank you
No, I only recommend books I really like. I found my mind wondered a lot during the story, that the voice of the tale irritated me, and in jumped around too much in time.
I think the story of Susan and her husband was interesting and would have held me had the author not get jumping around to present.half the time I felt like I was listening to the ramblings of the story teller, with little consideration for who was listening.
I found the narrators vouce, or maybe I should say, tone of voice, annoying after a while. I think he played the tone of a disgruntled older man well, but I'm afraid it was the voice ot the man he played that bugged me.
I could not imagine a movie.
This book is outstanding! So very sorry I did not read it before this, but so glad I found it. It is so well written and such a compelling story that I didn't want it to end. I know there was controversy about Stegner's use of the letters of Mary Hallock Foote, but the story he wove around those letters is remarkable.
As a result of reading this I just purchased Crossing to Safety, another book by Wallace Stegner, and A Victorian Gentlewoman in the Far West: The Reminiscences of Mary Hallock Foote. Can't wait to read them!!
Much has been written about this wonderful classic so I'll only say that the narration is excellent. Each character has a distinctive voice so you never get confused. Well worth the money.
Summed up in the four words above.
Tone and pace and characterization of voices were all excellent.
