I listen to audiobooks when I drive and when I hike.
I saw this novel compared to "The Help", and was surprised because "The Help" was much better than "Beautiful Ruins" - at least in my opinion. This was a good story, but not an unforgettable one.
Yes, the story is one of sadness and hope, reminding us not to waste even one moment of our life
Probably Pasquale as he had the most integrity and courage of all the characters.
Yes, although I found the beginning a little difficult to get through. However, the narrative is exceptional and quickly captures your imagination.
Definitely worth the listen!
50 something listener with eclectic taste, but no patience with a poor story line. Midnight's Children is my favorite book ever.
This book was a real disappointment. The editor's reviews compared it to The Help - not even close.
it was all over the place hard time of keeping up with who was who and at what point in their life it was.
Highly recommend, much easier to listen to than to read.
When De and Pasquale were about to be reunited after many years. I couldn't wait to hear the story.
Yes I wanted to but of course couldn't. I came back to it as often as I was able. Then I was sad that there wasn't more when it was over.
Great audio, this book would easily get people hooked on audio books.
The stories of the various characters are expertly woven together. The expressiveness of this book is just lovely. And the performance is amazing. I thouroughly enjoyed this listen.
I would never have bought this book had it not been for the Audible recommendation and the great reviews. Best decision ever. Absolutely perfect in every way. Narration was stellar and the story was beautifully written.
Yes it is a love story, in fact many different ones woven in the tale. So beautiful it makes you ponder the tittle. The characters are so well developed you wish you could meet these people. Some you want to put your arms around, and some you want to kick. The author transports us semlessly betwen the past history of the characters and present day.
Touching unique beautiful
I could see the characters, and I cared about them
Outstanding all around, great work with different voices
Not an option for me
