As we age our tastes change. When I was younger this book intriqued me and it kept my interest throughout. Now that I'm "mature", I was bored. It was me, not the book.
Minute by minute, hour by hour, you are intriqued. Some parts were predictable, but it was a pleasant read.
It was a good read. Kept my interest and it was nice to learn about the average hourly worker in the early 19th century. "Modern Medicine" wasn't an easy pill to swallow for the average person.
I haven't ever listened to a book more than once, but if I do, this would be on my re-read list.
I enjoyed the fact that the book is based on fact and I enjoy learning about other cultures. The love between friends is heart warming. The author, Gregory David Roberts, describes the slums so wonderfully that when I saw Slum Dog Millionaire at the movies I felt I had already been there.
I felt so involved with the story that I didn't want it to end. That's a sign of a great book to me.
Everything! His voices were wonderful and he was so great I wondered if it was being read by the author.
I wouldn't rename the book.
