Uplifting, funny and moving.
Gosh, that is a tough one. This book was so unique.
I loved how Kate did the voice of Augustus Waters. I have known a few Augustus Waters-types in my day and she had him down to a TEE.
Definitely both. How can a book about dying be uplifting? Well, it can because it's more a book about living and wanting to live and enjoy life.
Because I loved the audio book so much, I went out and bought the hardcover. I want to treasure this book and share it with friends--and underline my favorite lines.
I am not sure about that. There were times when I wished I had a print copy to go back and re-read some scenes because either my brain wandered off while I was listening or I just didn't understand abstractly what was happening.
I think Joe's mother's depression really spoke to me. The author made me feel her pain and what she was going through. I both pulled for her and wanted her to snap out of it, but also felt understanding toward her and allowed her time to heal.
At first, I thought the narrator of this book sounded a little....er....drunk. But then I felt bad for thinking that because I realized it was an actual American Indian with a slight drawl of an accent! Once I was used to him, he helped make the book come alive to me by being an authentic part of the story!
Wow...what a question. No idea. How about "Swamp Tea?"
This book has coming of age, Indian culture, religion, and strong families--a very enjoyable read and brilliantly researched and written by the author.
