Blind listener reading everything, especially sf&f & mystery/thrillers, restricted to audio so picky where credits are spent #BooksRule
This was a very entertaining and relaxing read... Keith is a mild mannered paragon, and the engineering components of the story were fun... Down to its crux it's a story of taken on responsibility and how friendships can germinate in unexpected ways... Its about doing the right thing, making friends, and being who you are w/o reservation... The characters are easy and likable, and the narration is top notch...
Really wasn't expecting too much from this book but since it was on sale I decided to try this (to me) new author. I am SO glad....it is simply so much fun, even though it became clear it was written some years ago. Great story!
Excellent narration of an excellent story, and characters you cared about.
The Good Earth by Pearl S Buck. While Trustee is not as BIG a story as the Good Earth, the characters and a basically simple story that is so well written that it captivates the listener just as much as any action thriller.
Everything. Easy to understand, each character voice was distinct and easy to follow.
His voice was very pleasant to listen to.
No, it wasn't a story you were in a hurry to get to the end of. The scenery along the way was too enjoyable.
This is one of my most favorite audible books. It is a very upbeat, hope filled story. The story line is plausible and interesting. I have recommended this book to several of my friends.
Both the characters and the story were interesting. A very easy read
I couldn't decide between Keith Stewart and Jack Donelly. They were both had a kind of simple wisdom and unassuming nature about them.
No...This was my first time
Wife, mother, geek, etc.
I was engrossed in reading this story for the span of two days. I loved the characters, Keith Stewart and Donnelley in particular. The talk does go technical, and I can't say I fully understood all that was described. But, the idea that a humble yet hardworking man has an adventure, was what captivated me. My late engineer father was recalled to my mind so many times, in the reading of this story. I recommend it for anyone who is technical, or at least wants to know what geeks were like in the 50s!
Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
This was a great story of a good mans expedition to claim what was left to him after his sisters sudden death. He must travel from Europe to Tahiti with very little money. Because of his kindness to everyone, even strangers, he is gifted with unbelievable niceties. A good journey with many believable characters. A clean book with no violence, just a nice eventful story.
The author, Nevil Shute, wrote a fantastic book, and to add the best narrator, Frank Muller, to the production was absolutely perfect.
I liked how it was a very believable adventure story. I liked the characters in the story, especially Keith Stewart. I also liked Keith's niece and how sweet and appreciative she was when they had to adopt her. The story made me feel good about the goodness found in some of the people Keith would encounter in his adventure.
I am looking forward to reading it again in the future.
Love to exercise while listening
Humble hero conquers
Of course the main guy. He was surprised that he was internationally liked. Didn't ask or expect others to help. Such a positive book, unlike our negative world. Nice to know there are good people out there.
He really brought out the characters. And of course his accent.
Yes, I loved it. not many books leave you with warm fuzzies.
you will not be disappointed.
I stumbled onto this one as I was searching for books narrated by Frank Muller, one of my favorite narrators. What I found was a wonderful yarn about a humble, but determined Engineer that is singularly focused on doing the right thing, even at the peril of himself and his family. If you are looking for mystery, suspense, or jaw dropping plot twists then I would say that this isn’t the book for you. However, if you are looking for an excellent human interest story with likeable characters then I would highly recommend this one. I had never heard of Nevil Shute before reading this book but I found this book to be so enjoyable that I plan to try another one of his. The narration was exceptional.
