Yes, Of Course. This book is a classic. The story is beautiful. I have seen the movie on TV, but the audible version is exceptional due to the superb narration.
The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens. Not because the stories are even close, but because the story brings you from tears to laughter and back again, over and over again. Also, it is hard to put the book down even though you wish the story to go on and on and you hate to see it end.
Lee- of course. The accent was beautiful with just enough Chinese accent to make Lee believable and his character loveable.
The times in the Trask home when Lee told Abra that he wished she were his daughter. This scene was so moving because Lee had always spoke of himself as a servant and did not require anything for himself even though his wisdom was basically what kept the story moving along.
There is nothing to add to any review of this book. It has been around for such a long time and I hope that the next generation can appreciate it as much as mine has.
Classic work performed by an exceptional narrator. Richard Poe captures the tone of each chapter, as well as Steinbeck's huge cast of characters, with vocal grace. I enjoyed listening immensely.
I am glad I have completed this. Wonderful thoughts and philosphy. However, there was such minutia! Maybe it was the narrator but I had a difficult time with it and wanted to laugh at times because of the various accents that the narrator tried to employ..
Great book, of course, the character development amazing, narration excellent. I listened almost nonstop except during sleep! How can I top this one?
the human condition boils down to a choice the story is rich with characters and does great at exposing that regardless of all else it is your own choice how you behave.
Ashamed to say I wrote off Steinbeck with required reading of Mice and Men in high school. I'm not sure I would have cared any more for East of Eden. I think it takes some living and suffering and perspective to appreciate Steinbeck's insight into the human condition.
The book was perfect - wise beyond all expectations, a book to live your life and understand the world by, and yet a total page-turner. The suspense kept me listening for seven hours at a stretch. The performance was perfect - full of humanity, gravitas and a true understanding of the words. I recommend every word.
