I did lilke this book, I really did. Not a life changer, but a good chick book. However...there I was..listening away and hadn't paid attention to how much time was left and "The End". What?? It's over?? Not a good ending...way too many opened things that could have been cleared up. Having said that...give it a listen, it's not a bad story at all. Good performance, too.
If you love Anne Tyler, no long review is needed. Another wonderful sweeping story of a family in the way Anne Tyler always delivers. I need to call my Mom now....
A stunning and deep story. I loved Bruno!! The voice used to perform Bruno was wonderful, I have told friends to listen it, don't read it because you would never use that wonderful accent. It was quite a journey, we took, Bruno and I. I have some new "life quotes" I have a new feeling about chimps. After listening to this and listening to the 20 minute interview with the author..please do not miss that...I watched some Jane Goodall documentaries and have some whole new thoughts about apes.
If I had one thing negative to say...it would only be this...how many times can the author use the term "my long purple fingers". Really...it almost got annoying, but if that's the worst..then please, please listen to this book!! Wonderful!!!
I'm new to listening to this genre and will definately listen to more of this writer. And listening to it in the English accent is fun! Whew..good stuff!!
I, too, did not like the end of this book, I thought maybe I hadn't downloaded the whole thing!! but having said that..it was a great read, and I enjoyed the reader. Not being very technical, and not playing computer games didn't matter, I didn't feel left out of that, still a good book. Abrupt end, but wouldn't keep me from recommending it.
