I love Bahni and look for books narrated by her
This was really just ok for me. Started out really interesting, but towards the middle became monotonous, and I struggled to finish. Bahni Turpin as always gave a wonderful performance and I am pretty sure what kept me from just hanging up halfway through. I do respect the author, and feel for what she went through- but there is no mention of what she did FOR others once she overcame her difficulties. THAT would have been more extraordinary for me to hear.
The performance was great, but the story is lacking in depth for me. I had difficulty going back to it with each time I had to pause the listen for an extended period of time. if you are looking for a light sugar sweet story to entertain then this is a good choice.
What a perfect pairing! I absolutely fell in love. The writing style is magical and hearing the words through Mr. Corduner's interpretation for tone was pure perfection. I fell completely in love with the characters and they are still with me as I write this. I want to point out that I didn't know this was considered young adult, and honestly glad I didn't as I might not have picked it. In my very humble opinion it is a wonderful story for any age. Should be a must read for any and all as Mr. Zusak's use of the English Language is as I said magical, like a beautiful dance.
In my top 5 so far
The characters will stay with me for some time. I don't have one particular moment.
No, but he was very good! Great pace, wonderful voice!
If I could have I'm sure I would have.
I had forgotten how much I enjoyed John Grisham. This was a wonderful story ..though yes slightly predictable as to where the story is going, it's told so well that you don't mind. I did tear up at bit towards the end even though I knew what was coming. It is a fictional work, but even so - it's close enough to humankind's actual history that it hurts to remember and be faced with what we are capable of doing to one another.
Hale. Main Character. His Realism and Acceptance of his lot in life.
Mr. Prebble has a way of interpreting the story as if he is simply relating his own experiences.
Truths about Soviets?
I had given up on Stephen King after Cellular. Craig Wasson is what kept me in this book. I would definitely listen again.
As always, the way Stephen King develops his characters is the best aspect of the story.
I enjoyed all the scenes in Al's Diner. I can still hear him talking.
I was almost unable to hit pause. I felt I had to listen.
