    In this laugh-out-loud funny memoir, a pampered city girl falls head over little black heels in love with a Peace Corps poster boy and follows him literally to the ends of the earth.

    I truly enjoyed this book. Eva Brown Waite made me feel as if I were part of her world - I laughed at some of her stories and got teary-eyed at others. She did a great job of describing life in remote areas of the world - and how people are people no matter where you go.

    Drawn from the work of StoryCorps, the largest and most ambitious private oral history project in American history, comes this tapestry of the stories Americans have been sharing from their lives to leave behind to their loved ones.

    What did you love best about Listening Is an Act of Love?

    This is a special audiobook because the voices are the actual voices of the interviewers and interviewees. I loved hearing grandchildren interview their grandparents, etc.


    What did you like best about this story?

    All of the stories were very interesting - true-life stories can't be beat.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The most memorable story was the Korean woman who trained her husband to demonstrate his love for her.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to see additional stories published!

    Story

    Jonathan is a Jewish college student searching Europe for the one person he believes can explain his roots. Alex, a lover of all things American and unsurpassed butcher of the English language, is his lovable Ukrainian guide. On their quixotic quest, the two young men look for Augustine, a woman who might have saved Jonathan's grandfather from the Nazis. As past and present merge, hysterically funny moments collide with great tragedy, and an unforgettable story of one family's extraordinary history unfolds.

    Christopher Allen walker says: "Heartfelt, fun, but slightly plodsome."
    "The worst book I've ever read"
    Overall

    This was the worst book I've ever read. I kept plodding through it, hoping that it would redeem itself. But it never did. The story was uninteresting and not at all humorous, although I do believe that it was supposed to be.

    Also just a comment for Audible - this is introduced as "audible kids" and this is not a childrens' book! It threw me off at first.
