Youth and beauty conquer age and cunning.
Fortress Of Solitude meets Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close.
Any time the two brothers "got" each other.
Persistent yet patient.
Characters could be more believable?
Could not finsh.
Rich and varied.
Maybe, but don't read it if teenage misery bothers you.
Voyeurism, bullying, nihilism, and all the other joys of adolescence culminate in this story. Look at your old high school yearbook before you read this and be thankful that you aren't Skippy.
Caroline Lee's narration did nothing for me, so I stopped listening.
Rumors Of War
Younger sounding voice?
I was disappointed.
I wish I could get a refund.
8 is a perfect example of those great dialogue-driven dramas of the radio stories our grandparents enjoyed.
Great courtroom dramas like Inherit The Wind and Judgement At Nuremberg excel because they are based on actual trials.
I felt like a member of the jury at the first line.
This story depicts the real-life stories of those involved with the same-sex marriage issue.
I have never relistened to an audiobook other than Garrison Keillor's Pretty Good Jokes.
You can't go wrong with the late Bryce Courtenay. I was hooked with The Power Of One and have been a fan since.
Humphrey Bower rates right up there with John Lee, Gregory David Roberts, and Jim Dale.
The Persimmon Tree Saga
Bryce Courtenay was one of the rare transportive authors. He will be missed.
Cutting For Stone meets The Far Pavilions
This is my first and he rates right up there with Jim Dale and John Lee.
Listening to this on a long monotonous car trip would be just the ticket.
Where have you been all my life, Shantaram?
Too many tired plot devices.
Make the characters more believable.
Making the gay kid African-American was a bold move.
Graham's performance was good.
I think this would have be much funnier if the author hadn't done the narration. She spoke too fast and her voice trailed down into raspiness at the end of each sentence. I found myself rewinding a lot just to catch the meaning.
This would have been more enjoyable if the narrator had a more comical voice a la Tine Fey in Bossypants.
Probably no one.
Jenny Lawson's audiobooks would be much better if done by a professional.
