This was a bookclub read. Interesting story… an emotional roller coaster. Couldn't get over how uninterested the narrator seemed. Audible should really rerecord this. I will try to get a refund on this.
An engaging story that is very well written. It has a host of colorful characters set in turn of the century Australia.
What a delightful, warm, moving human drama covering the complexities of human nature in a most compelling story.
The reading was somewhat irritating in that the reader Noah (?) swallows the last part of the sentences and makes listening difficult. Perhaps the cadence of his voice is not suitable for this kind of recording as the lows are almost mumbled.
A busy lady, just tryin' to fit her reading in where she can!
I would have changed alot about this book, the story was incredibly sad. Every turn of the page was just about experiencing loss and being alone.
This was my first listen to one of his books, I am not sure i would read another.
He was very authentic, but he just seemed to drag on.
I got completely confused when listening to this book. The premise sounded good but so difficult to listen to due to the accent and I got so lost in the storyline. Don't waste your money.
Having read the harsh reviews of the narrator I feel compelled to strongly disagree. The narrator captures the spirit of Tom's essence brilliantly. The mild drop at the end of a sentence only increased the attention required to glean what he was so subtly offering. I felt it was a wonderful rendition of the complexities of a character reflecting traumas beyond his or anyone's understanding. Well done!
