the audio version is better as it allowed me the freedom to truly relax and enter the story
this is a modern version of the classic 'It's a Wonderful Life" as it reminds me, us, of what truly is of value, the gift of life and caring for others
the very last scene was my favorite; who wouldn't want to go back, correct our mistakes and love life as it was intended to be by our Creator
I wanted to listen to this in one sitting but unfortunately I had to do a little work, but I still finished it in one day and will listen to it again
I enjoyed the concept of counting time as the framework of the story, and the reader did an excellent preformance
I enjoy the story line about two buddies seeking to do the right thing in the midst of others seeking the wrong thing.
The scene in the canyon where they go their separate ways.
Hill's style of reading/preforming the book leads one deeper into the movie running in my mind. While this happens in reading a book, it is a true joy to hear his tone and inflection embellish a good book.
It is always refreshing in our current society to read about two men in a strong relationship, supporting and depending on each other, that doesn't involve sex. Buddies are just that buddies; something we seem to have forgotten along the way in the media and entertainment industry of today.
This is an interesting beginning of a series; very current considering all the variables at work in the world and America. The characters were realistic and far from being over the top. After personally witnessing the devolution of the moral code in a major hurricane, the reactions of the people are on target. I pray I will never have to live through the scenario presented by the author. A good listen and I do plan on listening to it again.
I wasn't disappointed with Rollins. I like his concept and take on things. I also like the good guys winning!
exciting, interesting, unique
the idea of the symbiosis between the tree and the people
John brought the characters to life by inflection and cadence.
The sharing between the dying shaman and the new one.
I enjoyed the ending as well. God always finds a way regardless of what we think we have control of!
this book ranks in the top ten of my listens, it was hard to put down
For me, Luke's death and the return to Auschwitz were the most moving moments in the book.
Lane's performance added a great deal to the reading, he seemed to capture the characters in an uncanny manner; so much so I will look for other books narrated by him.
I wanted to listen in one sitting, and will probably will someday.
This books helps us remember how precious our freedoms are and how easily they can be taken away by because good people aren't willing to stand up and say 'enough', regardless of the personal consequences.
Again I was not disappointed by Rollins. This was his usual page turner, and continued development of the relationship between the main characters is a continued delight. I am looking forward to the next book in the series!
I was hesitant to purchase this book, but on the recommendation of a friend I took the risk, and I am very happy that I did. I liked that Death was the narrator of the story as it is an interesting perspective. It brought me back to childhood days, of first loves and how time moved at a different pace. I also brought memories of childhood pain while presenting an interesting perspective of Nazi Germany. The loyalty, the sacrificial love, and the hope that even death can't destroy all touched my heart. I plan on revisiting Himmel street in the future.
informational, exciting, frustrating
Finding the agent in the hotel room.
His style of presenting the story just gives it a wonderful flavor.
a modern Lancelot begins his journey
I described this story as frustrating in the beginning because it just made me more eager for the next in the series.
I do plan on listening again because I enjoy the characters I have come to know and the fast pace of the story.
All the twists of the plot keep you guessing who will betray who this time.
As always, his narration brings he story line to life, but there are some technical problems and the music that was added didn't help in anyway.
I like the series and the narration is great
His emotion while reading draws you into the scene, and paints it beautifully
the oracle of now
enjoyed it and glad Monk is back!
