I liked the book, but the narrator is awful! He pauses in between his sentences which is quite annoying. I also think this book would have been better if read by a female narrator. I would have related more to the women in the novel.
From the author, yes, from the performer, hell no.
Imagine filling your mouth with cotton then reciting the book. That's what listening to it was like. I had to keep all my car windows up and put the volume almost to max to comprehend what I was hearing, and no, I don't have hearing loss!
Yes. The story is well written and thought provoking.
In no time at all you are hopelessly caught up in this story about choices.
Sometimes it might seem best to leave the past be, but for our main character he just couldn't get right with it. It 's a bit of a roller coaster but worth the ride. Keep the kleenex nearby for the end.
Was very hard to understand almost like he was too close to the mike. Still the story is heartbreaking and so honest both at the same time.
Kind of. The story is good but the narrator is boring and unemotional. I tried listening to this book on three different occasions without ever getting through more than three-quarters of the book.
I really like Steven Weber. He was great in Stephen King's It.
I would highly recommend this book, but if you're a sap like me you'll go through an emotional roller coaster ride as the narrator guides you through a really heartbreaking story where it's hard to determine who is the bad guy.
I love the beginning but the actual story started up a little slow, and very said. It gets alot better though. It's a very touching story, that definitely makes you feel grateful for what you have. I love the way it shows various means of words such as love, loss, family, etc. Rarely the accent got in the way of understanding the words but other than that it is beautifully read
loved the story
the narrator had inflections in his voice where he dropped words and vowels and droned on in parts. made it difficult to understand. he did not sound like he was interested in the book..
Tom - his honesty and high moral code, caring nature, and gentle sense of humor
