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.
this was a nice story, touching and heartwarming. the main character really makes you root for him. some of the other supporting characters I found annoying, but I suppose that made them a little more real, since I found myself talking to them! there is one little loose end that left me hanging. I like to have all my questions answered when I'm reading a story, so this was a little disappointing to me. that's just me, I know some people don't mind leaving open ends where you can leave something up to your imagination. not me, tell me everything. anyway the book was compelling, we'll written and we'll narrated. I'd definitely recommend.

A Slow paced story that was appreciated at the end. Makes you think about the impact of small and big events in your life. The story builds slowly. Worth a listen.
