This book SOARS!! Malala is a major inspiration to me, and I am 60 years old. I did read one review that said it would be hard to tell where the ghostwriter stops and the real Malala begins. There is no doubt that the ghostwriter here captured the TRUE MALALA. I wish I could meet this brilliant young and MOST insightful girl. In this day and age when Muslims are getting such a bad rep, she lets us know what is really in the hearts of Muslims.
Malala, it would be a miracle if someday I met you. It would be a dream for me. I could honestly put this one on my bucket list.
This book is phenomenal. I am not one for present-day literature, for autobiographies, or books of this nature. But this book just SOARS way above anything of its kind. How can I describe what this girl means for her country and for peace? I can understand why she was passed over for the Nobel Peace Prize. But it's like an Academy Award Nomination. The nomination is a feather away from the actual award. Kudos, Sweet Girl. Stay at your stand and become even more well known. You are an admirable human being, and I humbly acknowledge your inspiration!
Only one flaw...(the flaw: matches were not commonplace until over 100 years later.)
Matthew Corbett because he's obviously the HERO! But Mr. Bidwell reminds me of an old blusterbuss boss attorney for whom I worked.
OMG... what a VOICE! Mr. Ballerini, you are SO SPOT ON!
I need historical accuracy. Matches were not a common occurrence until over 100 years later. I highly advise you update your book to make note of that fact.
I would not recommend this book to anyone. The narrator has totally ruined the experience for me because of the most boring narration and phony voices. I have had to stop repeatedly to brace myself to just listen to the STORY, not the narrator. I am appalled she was not stopped and told to begin this book again.
The Woman in White
Her horrible attempt at making a man sound "evil." She had three levels of inflection throughout the entire story, most of them a hoarse whisper. The levels never varied. I can talk about the mail being delivered with more enthusiasm, inflection, or variation in my speech.
Yes. It inspired me to write my first review. Sad that it had to be because the narration was so poor. The story was not much better.
I will be most cautious to make sure I do not get a book narrated by her again.
