while the book was a little slow getting into it built beautifully. the twists and turns were very compelling and all led to a wonderful end
The realism of the childless couple.
Not sure I have a comparison.
It was a good performance. Done well.
A realistic story of the dilemma couples without children could face if given the possibility of having a child.
The best was the Australian setting and lighthouse details.
If you like sing-song narration styles, you'll like this book. Almost every sentence starts loud and finishes in a whisper and you need to keep your hand on the volume control. The narration is also very dreary, almost like a funeral director offering condolences to a grieving relative.
Gut wrenching story of love, loss, and the lives we lead in between. Terrific writing by Stedman, fantastic novel, but you'll likely need to chase this book with some much lighter fare as the dilemma posed in the story will be especially haunting to parents. World class performance by Noah Taylor.
A story of choices, how that effect you and all those around you.
I gave the performance only 2 stars because it was too "dim" I never seemed to be able to turn it up loud enough to hear clearly.
also provides insights into life on a remote island as lighthouse keeper. enjoyed the emotional tangle of right and wrong
I think the story had an interesting plot, but the narrator was very difficult to understand at times, partly because of the Australian accent, but more because at times he mumbled or spoke really softly. I was mostly listening in the car, which might have had something to do with it. When I listened through head phones through my phone, it was much better.
the narration is very monotone, and difficult at times to understand. the story was wonderfully told, but very sad.
