The story was well written with an interesting plot and characters. However, the author had a pronounced Australian accent that made the story difficult to follow. At times, it affected my overall enjoyment of the text.
Stedman yes--though I have not been able to get beyond the first chapter, because Taylor is UNLISTENABLE.
Well, finding the baby is only one I got to. So I will go with that.
Taylor's voice trails off at the end of each sentence. When you can hear him, he is using a lilting sing-song, as if he is not reading the meaning of what he is saying. It is impossible to follow.
I will not get another book narrated by Taylor. I am going to find another medium to read Stedman's book--I have heard it is outstanding.
No. I couldn't understand the performer at all. I ended up buying the physical book so I could make sense of the story, which turns out was an amazing story.
His sentences fell off at the end which made it difficult to listen to. Very disappointing.
Wonderful read and beautifully written
So many layers
Great for book clubs
Loved this story
Will read more books by this author
I loved this book. I could relate to all the characters and my heart ached for each of them. I have recommended it to many people. The narrator was great too.
i wish i had read the reviews before purchasing. i have been wanting to read this and that is what i should have done. listening is torture. i can not return it and have no credits left, hence the violent headline!!!
A well-narrated story of relationships between parent and child and how love can be both constructive and destructive. Once again, the horrors of war subtly influence the lives of the survivors for generations.
