I agree with the previous reviewer, this is a wonderful piece of work for someone interested in the history of India. The DVD is also exceptionally well done. It is colorful and very interesting and engaging, covering spiritual and political aspects. India is a fascinating country and this is a great overview. It is educational without being boring -- Michael Wood does such a good job. I've listened to it several times and enjoyed it each time.
All in all, an listening excellent choice for non-fiction.
No. OK light story, but probably not for a second listen. Still, passed the time for me.
No, but that's ok.
Haven't listened to any others.
They describe eating and drinking way too much for my taste.
I. Couldn't get past the awful narration, done by an American trying to do a British accent, and failing, and I just couldn't listen to it, and will return for my credit. What a shame!
I found this book easy listening and engaging, with interesting characters and wonderful scenery descriptions.
Seemed to go over the same suspects and same facts over and over.
The dog, Cybil.
Not really sure.
I am one of the people who didn't like this book.
Just didn't like it.
It was OK.
Just didn't enjoy it.
The narrator was ill chosen. She mispronounced words, which is such a shame when
one is reading such great, intelligent writer's words. Rebecca Solnit is an exceptional
writer, and this narrator simply was not up to the task of bringing her words to audio.
Such a shame, because it is an excellent book. I bought a copy and read it.
Good story, but the Americans portrayed are such jerks, and such cliched stereotypes, it is laughable. Better to leave them out.
There was not enough story, not enough of interest, not a lot thatwe didn't already know. The plot was thin, and it was stretched out toolong. Granted I love the characters, Ruth, Clara, Marla, Gamache, Jean Guy,Reine Marie, but we know them pretty well now. How many time can it be interestingto hear Ruth insult everyone? It needed more of a story.
I enjoyed the description of the culture and art of Canada, the beautiful historical village descriptions, the love the author has for Canada.
When someone asked her about depression, Pema suggested they try singing
and dancing. I found it very surprising as she is usually sensitive to people's
pain, not this time.
I have other books of hers that are useful, this one is not good. Her advice for the person whose friend is dying and is terrified was useless, too. Not at her best this day for sure.
Maybe Pema was very tired and needed a break, I know she must have to help
a lot of people in pain, and maybe she was burned out.
I hope she had a chance to take a vacation.
This absolutely could not have been written by the same author
who wrote the Dr Siri Paiboun books. They appear to be written
by a child.
Maybe Colin Cotterill let one of his grandchildren write these Jimm books.
Stupid, uninteresting, boring, insulting, really.
Not a single one. I will return it for my credit.
