I've been listening to books for twelve years. I love to read but never could find enoough time just to sit. Audio opened a whole new world for me. I love it! I love Sci-Fi and Fantasy and an occasional mystery. The iphone is a great delivery tool for me. Listening to books may not be for everyone, but it is an awesome alterative for me. Everyone should give it a try!
Very well written.
Its hard to pick just one. The description of what happened to his wife and the dying man by the river.
You could hear the sound of the character's life style and station.
The main character.
This book should have won a Nobel Prize. I loved the story and characters. The whole book just pulled you in. Beautiful writing!
I haven't listened to many so far but I really enjoyed this one.
There were a lot of great moments-the book is really a collection of vignets from the life of this down to earth, goood-hearted guy. Each of these mini-stories is so evocative, like how he copes with the fire in the valley, or his ride in the bi-plane, or his experiences felling trees in the woods of Northwest Washington. The author really captures the feel of the placeand time while overlaying the experience of his main character.
I LOVED his narration! He has such a unique voice, it was perfect voice and he had the perfect tone and pacing for this laid back character.
Small towns and backwoods experiences of the early 20th century West
No, it's beautifully written. It's one of those books that you know each and every sentence was worked and reward then editied repeatedly. Not a word was not placed in the exact perfect place.
Each character is a deep as a well, no matter how little their part in the book for how it is written. It would be hard to choose just one.
Excellent - Perfection
Yes, this could be a movie - with the use of wolves and their popularity - a progressive movie.
My biggest complain was the value of this book. It's quite short - to be honest, if you read to occupy your mind while you are performing a mindless task, such as driving or handwork, though this book is lovely to listen to with an interesting story - it is a short story and, in my opinion, should be much cheaper than it was.
