    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! I've already recommend It to several people. The story, combined with Will Patton's narration, make it one of my favorite audiobooks ever.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked Amos (main character) very much. But Jake is probably my favorite. He is an extrememly honest character in terms of being 'real.' He is rough and crusty, but underneath he has a simple, uncomplicated love for his son. He is a very colorful character.


    What does Will Patton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    For me, Will Patton made this book. If I were to read it, I would hear his voice on every page. I would look for more Will Patton-narrated books.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    While it was not intended to be a humorous book, the characters are at times very amusing. I did laugh out loud a few times. I also found myself experiencing extreme sadness. The writer handles human emotion extremely well.


    Any additional comments?

    I had the pleasure of meeting and hearing the author speak about this book recently. She shared the background for the story, which made it all the more fascinating. To read about it, go to the author's websites.
