My mother was born in 1929 and got polio when she was about one year old. I never even knew that Polio was a contagious disease until listening to this book (although it takes place in the 40s and not during the time when my mom caught polio). She suffered terribly from post-polio syndrome later in life.
I loved the book because it showed 1940s American Jews from an angle I have previously not seen them. The main character is lovable, flawed and inspiring.
I never, never re-read a book, watch a movie twice or listen to a book more than once.
But I plan to listen to nemesis again because the book has many different levels (plot, character development, social characterization) and I feel like I missed many nuances the first time .
I really loved this book. Great characters. Fascinating plot. True insight into Vietnam war. Excellent Narrator. What more could you ask for?!
Great! Entertaining. Insightful. Wonderful narration. Can't wait to listen to more Augusten books. I consumed Scissors via the movie and did not particularly enjoy it. So happy I stumbled across Augusten once more and this time in this much more enjoyable format!
it is just so hard to believe that this is the same walter mosley who wrote those earlier works. this book is so boring and repetitive and lacking in surprises or handles to grasp onto. sorry walt
Excellent! One of my favorite Audible books yet! I hope they produce more audio books by Thomas Perry
