I had read this in high school, and, even though I couldn't remember the plot, always remembered it as a story I liked it. This audible version was delightful and I truly enjoyed my listen.
Despite being a "middle-aged" woman, I enjoyed this delightful tale of Anne and her her unfailing optimism.
Although just a short listen I enjoyed this story about Sister Anne's kindness to change a child' s misperceptions.
I really enjoyed the story and the narrators' voices. There was enough history thrown in to encourage me to read further about the island's history.
I always marvel at people who perserve through unspeakable horrors, yet manage to overcome, grow, and suceed. I liked the slow speed of the reader, it made me feel as if I were in the room with Mrs Klein as she was retelling her memories.
I enjoyed this book emmensely until the end. I invested a huge portion of my time listening and totally felt robbed. I have never been as disappointed in an ending in my life.
I highly recommend listening to this book.I found the story line very cleaver in educating me about how the brain functions with autism.
The author paints vivid scenes that are wonderfully entertaining. The end of the book grew tedious with repetition of several phrases ad nauseum. Still I overall enjoyed the story and recommend it to other listeners.
I really enjoyed the story and was amused by the "future technology" of a book published in 1857, 2 years before I was born.
This book enlightened our family on the plight of Native Americans living on a reservation while at the same time keeping us well-entertained on a recent vacation. While my daughter found the voice of the narator to be annoying, my husband and I disagreed and found it to be appropriate for the story.
