At the beginning of this book I nearly stoped listening because of the harsh circumstances, but just in time things looked brighter. From then on the book becomes a wonderful experience and the whole plot is fascinating right to the end.
The reader is absolutely ingenious and makes the whole book so much more enjoyable to listen to than you could ever imagine if you were merely reading it.
I really enjoyed the book but Phoebe Strole's narration was quite confusing to work out who was speaking. A little deeper voice for Henry would have been great.
Fred Berman was excellent.
It must become one of my favourites now. Beautifully written prose and a marvellous story.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Would have loved to hear the unabridged version though. I thought the author's reading was excellent. She even managed some of the accents.
I would recommend this book to anyone.
I just read the above reviews and obviously Lipton was right that conventional mainstream doctors and scientist are stuck in their dogma.
I am only part of the way through this book and find it compelling. Lipton is so passionate about what he speaks I have not doubt that there is a lot of truth in what he says, probably more truth than what we are fed by mainstream mentallity everyday. I thoroughly enjoy his captivating ideas.
Towards the beginning I was wondering why I am listening to a story about the Korean war, but the characters and events were so real and interesting that I found myself totally absorbed.
As most of Mr Courtenay's books the stories have a harsh beginning but then reveal what the human spirit is capable of under great adversity.
Many tear renching, heart warming moments to fill the emotions as well as interesting facts and details about our racism and history.
Quite a page turner or in this audio version I found it very difficult to turn my mp3 player off to get some sleep and occassionally talk to my husband.
The reader is also excellent.
