Busy mom and wife who listens to audiobooks whenever I am in my vehicle. Rarely do I listen to the radio.
Loved the narrator and story line. Definitely worth the time to listen to! Definitely worth the money.
The story builds a tad slow but is so intriguing. I found myself cheering for Harold and egging him on to finish his walk. The cast of characters Harold meets and the human interaction that happens between them is a story within a story. great listen!
Yes. Jim Broadbent's voice and accent were perfect - a marvelous performance. The writing was poetic at several points and I would like to copy down some of the quotes. It was also a comforting story in many ways.
Harold. He was relatable and endearing.
He brought emotion into the characters' voices, especially Harold's. I'm american and I'm glad my memory of this story will be in a British voice. He was a perfect choice.
Yes - both. Not many audiobooks have that effect on me.
A wonderful sorry of self-discovery, determination, love, and redemption. Loved every step of this pilgrimage....even the self-serving tag alongs.
I've only listen to the Audio version
Mr Broadbent's production of this audio was excellent. He was well fitted for the characters in the book and expressed their emotions and stories masterfully. Great job.
The reading of this book, if I had done so, would have been very difficult to put down. Would I have been able to read it in one sitting? I don't believe I would have been able to do so.
Well written and very enjoyable listen. The way he gradually unveiled the past and its ultimate results was done with grace and great timing. A good read for anyone and a must for us senior citizens.
Always looking for a great series/author to follow.
This book was on the depressing side with a rather slow start. It did finish strongly and with a 'flash' of hope and resolution of some of the hard concepts; childhood trauma, aging, loss and neurosis that it deals with throughout Harold's journey.
