Its a rarity that I really feel that the narration improved on the book, especially when the writing already so wonderful. I was enchanted by the flow and cadence of the reader as well as the power of the words.
Audible Obsessed Commuter.
I've never wished for an abridged version of a book this much before!" (okay, exaggeration, I have one other time - but this was pretty bad). There seemed to be too many sub-plots that took chapters explain that went nowhere in the big picture of the read. A hero that couldn't save, a survivor that couldn't survive, and an innocent that was actually innocent. Save your credit for something better!
If you like reading about other cultures and different perspectives on life then this is a book for you. I thoroughly enjoyed the narrator and story.
This was a very touching story about a very lonely man who becomes involved with 2 young runaway girls and they change his life. He takes care of them even though they show very little gratitude. Narrator was very good.
Someone who enjoys dark literature.
Overall hopelessness of the characters circumstances combined with the narrators voice. This book honestly made me really depressed.
To be fair, Mark Bramhall narration was appropriate for the overall tone of the book. It just wasn't my cup of tea.
None of them. All are essential to the story.
I think the author is very talented and I appreciate her writing ability to make the reader feel the emotions of the characters. It just wasn't an enjoyable listen for me.

What can I say, the book was amazing.
I can see the value of the story and appreciate the literary contribution, but I was so happy to finish it and move on to more rewarding reads. I would have liked more orchard and less roaming.
The book is so beautifully written you can almost smell the apples on the trees. The narrator was excellent for Talmadge's voice, you could feel the character's connection to the land and his inner turmoil.
Talmadge walking through the orchard, he simply takes in the beauty of nature and the joy of growing things.
Don't usually listen to a book more than once, but I might with this one because the story and the voice were so entrancing.
I loved the depth of the character exploration. A long journey with a deep, quiet man who values his place and tries so hard to make the world around him more fair. So interesting to be with him as the forces of life find him hidden in his orchard and take him for a ride. Though the story moved slowly, it was only because the reader feels like she's living it with him and that is how life moves, one breath at a time.
No, but I will. I loved the richness of his voice and came to the performance to hear him as well as to find out what happened next.
Though I'm sure I'd enjoy reading this book, this is one of those that was pure pleasure to listen to.
