I liked the parallel stories that ran thoughout the book, but I thought they could have been tied together better at the end. Some were still left hanging.
In general I did not care for the three narrators of the book, but the female was by far the worst. Please give me narrators who can enunciate. It was difficult to listen to. It sounded as though she were drunk and slurring her words during most of her reading.
I almost returned the book, but I liked his other two books well enough I wanted to see where this would go. The narration was just horrible though.
My husband and I needed an audio book for a long road trip. We both loved this book. We are avid hikers and are inspired to go to Hocking Hills State Park sooner than later to hike Grandma's trail.
The only negative remark I have is the narrator should just read, not try to imitate Grandma or any other character in the book. It's not a play.
I was glued to it, so I must have loved it. But what a crazy book with absolutely crazy characters. Seriously, the Psychiatrist made his daughter scoop his poo out of the toilet to dry on the picnic table to dry in the sun?
The Hotel New Hampshire ... just based on nuttiness.
No, but I do plan to.
Yes. This book was fascinatingly crazy.
I would, and have, suggested this book to many of my friends to read. I cannot imagine anyone would not enjoy this book. It is engaging from beginning to end. The narration was fabulous and fit the book perfectly.
Easter. Adorable ... head to toe.
Extreme? No, but I enjoyed it thoroughly. I might have had a tear in my eye a few times. But weeping, no. Laughing? Probably yes a few times. It is just an overall wonderful book that will make you think and hope for the outcome you want.
Finish the book
I loved the characters, how they were developed, and how they grew together.
Yes. I really enjoyed the book until the very ending. I felt like it just left you hanging. I mean that was it? One more paragraph that gave me some closure, and I would have more than loved the book.
It was a great book. I just stumbled onto it, and I would read it again.
I liked how the story developed. I liked his compulsion to do the right thing with his father's ashes.
Only if the character were supposed to be an older person. He has an older person's voice. It did not match the character.
His relationship with the Japanese son of his company's owner (whose name escapes me right at the moment). I should do these reviews immediately after the read. :)
Odd question, but possibly. I thought it was performed well and played out like a movie in my head.
Yes. I went through the book very quickly because I didn't want to put it down. The plot thickened constantly and just as I thought I had it figured out, I learned quickly I didn't.
I have not.
An extreme reaction? Nope. It was just entertaining read.
Her perserverence to carry his child, and how much she immediately loved the baby.
It was a sad book. But I loved it near the end when Meriam went to see Mullah's childhood home.
This is really a heart wrenching novel. Very well written and well narrated.
It is a well-woven story. It is one of my favorite so far from Audible.
Henry, naked in the basement, saying hello to Alisha.
I wouldn't say I had a severe reaction no. But I thought it was a sweet story. Several parts near the end made me cry.
Absolutely. But be prepared to give up the majority of your life once you get started with it because you can't put it down.
She did a great job except with the baby's voice. I thought that was pretty painful.
