Absolutely would listen to this again. The story never gets old and Michael C. Hall's narration was perfect.
Too many to count...I liked the scene where Holly and "Fred" spend a Sunday drinking at the bar. I love the simplicity of the metaphor of masks used in many ways, overtly and obliquely. The stolen masks at the store, a nice metaphor for Holly's stolen identity and "Fred's" assumed identity given to him by Holly. I enjoyed the hospital scene where Holly puts on her makeup as a sort of fortification or armor to help her read the letter of dismissal from her fiance. Makeup as armor or mask of another sort.
Everything. I love that he used different voices for each character, but didn't have to force it. Switching from voice to voice was smooth and not jarring in any way. His nuanced reading of the point of view character was even better than expected.
Well...there is already a pretty famous movie isn't there?
If you've read this story already, it is worth it just to hear Michael C. Hall narrate. Enjoy.
An amazing story of survival, brokenness and healing. The performance of late actor, Edward Herman was perfect. Laura Hillenbrand managed to tell Louis Zamperini's difficult story with grace and fairness without glossing over the atrocities.
