The story was interesting and engaging but although Ms. Walls is an excellent writer, the narration was awful.
The performance was flat. It did get slightly better as the book progressed but it was not good. I've listened to hundreds of audio books and this was the worst narration ever. I wanted to stop listening and run to get the print version. This one is truly a better read in print.
This book was really special. I found myself wondering if the author somehow knew my father and had decided to write a book about him. Her descriptions of Rex often brought tears to my eyes, as similar memories of my own dad came to my mind. I felt that the author really captured what it's like to have so much love, admiration and faith in someone, even when they've let everyone down over and over again. Beautifully written.
I really enjoyed the book that great content great story and very emotional lighter highly recommended you're going to love it as I do
Jeanette Walls has a gift for vivid imagery, and has a strong voice throughout the book. This memoir is for anyone who loves to root for the underdog.
I had to read this book for a class and didn't expect it to grow on me as it did. It had me in tears and it had me laughing. Unlike any story I've ever read.
Enjoyed this very much. Gives me great appreciation for my childhood. Never went hungry or homeless, but have gone without many times in my life because of money or the lack thereof.
