I listened every spare moment (and some not so spare) to this compelling love story about a kind man and his devoted stenographer living through relatively recent history from Trotsky to McCarthy. 50 years ago, but such a different time.
At first, I wished for another reader than the author herself, it worked better in "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle"
But Kingsolver drew me in with her gentle narrative and subtle characterizations.
A wonderful listen. Made this grown man cry (and laugh and think.)
I avidly read reviews before making a purchase. A you have noticed already, "The Help" gets RAVE reviews from almost every reviewer- almost all with female handles!
Well, another RAVE review here, from a male (Reviewer/reader is Judy's husband!). This is a really good story, well written, well read, provocative.
Go ahead, guy (or gal), download it. I expect you will be as enchanted as I was.
Edgar was worth the listen- a very good, engaging story, but I wish I hadn't listened to the last hour. (Bet you won't stop listening, though)
