Yes, I will wait at least a year because I became outraged listening to the level of inhumanity one woman would endure in the name of "love". To think these dehumanizingactivities may go on in the world is truly disturbing.
When O has a chance to get away from the abusive behavior she chose to stay.
Ms. Mazur reads with a slow steady pace. It allows the listener to really absorb what is happening and the mind blowing way in which this woman accepts her fate and how in the end she is discarded like a piece of garbage.
I did. I was shocked then angry and at the end very, very sad. I wanted to shake O awake until I realized she had become numb from her mistreatment and would have enjoyed my actions and nothing would change.
I would recommend this book to any reader that enjoyed the Shades of Gray trilogy. While I did not read the series I would hope that listeners of this story would understand that we demoralize our selves by making these abusive behaviors entertainment. the Story of O was an education.
I downloaded the book because J.K. Rowling refused to read the Shades of Gray series
after reading this one.
I barely remember reading this book back in school. Listening to Joe Morton's performance I can't get certain portions of it out of my head.
This story, the coming of age of a young African American male in American society could be anyone of us. Because as we move through life we all come to terms with what it means to be visible. It all in the question. Did I make a difference? Thanks Ralph!
This novel has more twist and turns than most. To listen to the same events experienced by two different characters was enjoyable. Had to adjust to female narrator because pitch and accent seemed wrong at first, but it grew on me the more I listened.
Gotta say, I can usually predict actions and outcomes in most stories but this one left me guessing up to about the last 20 minutes or so. Makes me wonder when the rest of the series is coming out. Can't wait.
Jonathan Mayberry does not disappoint and Ray Porter does the narration with style Who ra! Joe and company take on terrorist that are part of an agreement made before modern times.
This story has the historical elements of Da Vinci Code and dark forces of Twilight series. Buckle up for a wild ride.
The methodical way in which the author gathered his evidence. I learned a great deal about the financial systems and how they could be corrupted. Markopolos and his team took on something that was so big so complex and dangerous for so long....
When Markopolos explained how he and his team cracked the case by following the money. Sounds simple....
When he found out Bernie Madoff had been stopped. All the people who called to tell him all his hard work had finally paid off. And how much money and lives that could have been saved if someone would have listened and acted sooner.
Yes, I have too several people.
That we having an almost similar educational experience in New Orleans around the same time.
I have not had the pleasure.
That he knew a great deal about himself and the motivations of people around him.
Although I enjoyed this book I have not been made completely drunk by the Tea Party kool-aide. I now know from where they get some of their ideas and what the plan is to change conservative views in the eyes of the American populace. I sleep better at night having listened to this book.
Also I was stunned to learn the author passed away this year.
It stacks up pretty high in the non-fiction genre.
How certain things regarding genders do not change no matter what a parent does. Basically how society impacts.
I thought the lecture format was interesting way to deliver this information. The question and answer period at the end of each section sometimes answered a question I was also thinking.
Thought there was some useful stuff about being innovative. Had to work hard to keep listening because he kept going off script and telling us so. It was distracting.
I would have read it as written and provided updates/new references at the end of each chapter or end of the book.
He was very loud and over the top. Nonstop
