This is a wonderful story! Beautifully told by the narrator. The author accurately portrays so many different emotions, reactions, personalities and struggles. (Make sure you have tissues for the end)
an old man walks to save a friend but really saves himself. it was a little slow in the middle but picked up at the end where as, as one would expect, a lot of questions are answered.
I was excited to listen to this book based upon the reviews. I am on Chapter 12, and really just slogging through it. They keep teasing you with what happened in the past, but frankly, at this point, I don't care... I enjoy quiet small books, but I am not finding anything great about the writing, so just bored.
Beautiful. Poignant. Human.
I chose this book from the list on their $4.95 sale. It looked like a nice, light, summer read. It was, and it wasn't. This book (and author) are now in my top ten favorites. I doubt I would have come across it but for the recommendation from Audible. A REALLY GREAT book!
Excellent book about examine ones own life, it's flaws and celebrations and how to accept the flaws and learn to emphasize the celebrations.
As expected, Broadbent was excellent and the only thing that got me through it. It was just a chore with no element of humor or joy.
full of little surprises and a moving story
Harold, of course!
what a soothing voice
Harold is a very likeable character - full of flaws and leading a quiet, ordinary life, until he decides to do something extra-ordinary - believable and entertaining - I loved this audio book
Everyone will be able to relate to some character in this book if they are willing to take an honest look at their life. Even in the messiness of life, love prevails. I was thankful for the way it ended.
