Captivating and eerie The Book Thief grabs your mind making you want to listen to the next chapter. The narration was spooky and chilly as you expect from Death! My first foray into fiction in a while so I am seeking out other good fiction listens.
The main character who learns to love books so much she risks her life to steal them.
The chilling rendition of Death as a character who is thoroughly tired of the work humans were giving him.
A girl, some stolen books and a world at war.... And Death watches them all.
Just a great listen that resonates long after the last word.
I am studying psychology and I am a mother so I need as much help with my mind, my children's and my clients (in the future). Listening to this again will clarify some of its many valid points.
The Brain that Changes itself, because Mindsight expands on the ideas of plasticity that are so important to changing our brains and have better mental health outcomes.
An enthusiasm for the material.
There were many "Oh Yes" moments when he made points about left and right intergration but I liked the 'feeling felt' concept.
A complex listen and reading it as well would help with the anatomy of the brain, I have bought the hardcopy and the textbook so I can go through it more closely. Definitely not one to listen while doing the washing, cleaning or ironing, more an embroidery/coffee listen!
A much loved story from young adult reading days, great to revisit in an audio format. Love her stoicism and conviction that she was equal to others.
Great narration, good use of accents which is so important in an English setting.
Someone who does not recognise how bad the accents are!
Yes! Well there are lots of them and they can not
The narration made many of the minor characters seem ridiculous.
Let the people at Brilliance Audio know that this one needs re doing with only one narrator that can do all the regional accents convincingly. Also improve the sound quality, as one reviewer said it sounded like it was recorded with a tin can.
