Among the first five.
Pascale. Such a gentle, honest soul
Pascale. Loved the accent.
Pascale. So many things to learn from his life story.
Masterful writing, gorgeous performance. It was really a true pleasure to listen to it.
I really enjoyed the writing, and was surprised by it's depth . I wasn't expecting it, I think I was expecting a tale about two guys drinking and screwing their brains off, and the story really turned out to be much more than that. I thought the narration was excellent. I couldn't have enjoyed it more
No, I would not. I really enjoyed this book, however it felt like the author often dwelt too long on some topics, which made the listening a little cumbersome. At times, I'm ashamed to admit, I just pressed the fast-forward button for for quite a few seconds, without ever missing the thread of the story at all.
I can't think of any.
no I haven't
Prabaka. (not sure if that would be the correct spelling of his name). He was a happy person, with simple needs, a positive attitude and a wonderful heart.
As I said, it dragged for a little too long at times but this is definitely a book worth reading or listening to.
Top 10, undoubtedly.
It was interesting to experience the Holocaust from the point of view of a Non-Jewish German family who sympathized with the Jews. It was incredible to view humanity from Death's point of view. I found Zusak's interpretation of death very original and intriguing, and it fascinated me.
He was just amazing. I was totally immersed in the experience.
Death. I am fascinated by Zusak's rendering of this character. It mesmerized me, really. Very, very touching.
I haven't seem the movie, but from what I hear, the book seems to be sooooo much richer!!!
Well written, interesting plot. Just didn't deliver.
Predictable, flat, uninspiring.
Yes, she writes well, the characters have depth.
Sometimes, but not often enough.
Perhaps someone suffering from insomnia
I could not get farther than chapter 5, not sure of it was because the of story or the narrator.
I chose this novel because of Edoardo Balerini, I loved his work in "Beautiful Ruins", and also when he read another of R. McCammon's stories (and a few other works he's read) , but boy! ...was I disappointed with this one!!! He sounded bored, and was totally uninspiring.
None, but but remember I couldn't go past chapter 5
I hope you have a better experience with this one!
The characters were flat and poorly developed, and often times behaved in conflicting and contradictory ways, and a significant part of the story seemed to be quite unimportant to the plot and could have been left out all together. I had to make an effort to listen to the book until the end, and I only did so because I had already paid for it (but it was hard!).
Certainly to HIS books, it has.
Versatile, nuanced, pleasant. I only chose this book because I wanted something read by Mr. Hammer, since I really enjoyed his reading of "Chiefs".
Don't get me started!
I love it's luminescence.
The rendering of the realization that time, and individual history is an illusion.
The most pleasurable listens are those from which you get a feeling that the performer understood the story exactly the way you are learning to understand it yourself, and the experience becomes symbiotic in that sense. That's the feeling I got listening to this book.
All of them.
I loved the movie as well. I am waiting for more works from Foer anxiously. He touches my heart with one hand and my brain with the other, it's an odd and addicting feeling.
Don't know. Haven't read the print version. The performance, however, was marvelous.
The psychological angles and unexpected turns.
Their own interpretation of the text, I assume.
Neither. I thought it was an intelligent and entertaining book, well written and well read. I was surprised and pleased with the insights into the relationships and personalities of the characters, and thought it a grabbing, smart, and very pleasurable book.
Yes. Beautiful, touching story, full of insight into what it means to be social animals and how it affects our relationships and ultimately who we are.

I am not one
What a wonderful physician the author must be, if he was able to write such a compassionate book!
