Bernadette Dunne brought the story to life. I've finally, after several tries, learned to love audio versions, although if it's a great book, I'll still buy it for my library. Don't think I'll buy the hard copy of this but I sure loved the audible.
The end of the trail.
Several, the party in the Ranger's cabin was hilarious; the first time she tried to put on Monster; the trip to the beach.
This story was about so many things. Loss of parents, loss of self, the kindness of strangers, the strength of determination to complete a goal, letting go, listening to our inner voice. The way she was so alone and then could step off the trail and be in civilization reminds me of the thin wall between ourselves and others. If i were in a book club I think this would be a great book to discuss!
My first Cornwall audio book, bought because of interesting TV interview, but it was just so badly narrated and so full of meaningless detail that it was a turn-off.
Yes, I won't waste my time on this kind of mind anesthesia again.
I don't even think she is a very good cook...
The author brings to life characters about whom very little is known unless one reads the classics. My favorite might be Hypacia, or perhaps Bruno, who both were burned at the stake, but the man who hunted for lost Latin texts Poggio rescued an obscure poem, the philosophy of which runs through time all the way to our Declaration of Independence. It took my breath away.
Never, but he was excellent. I especially enjoyed the facility he had with the Italian language and Latin.
In the sense that I wanted to listen whenever I had a moment.
No surprise it won the Pulitzer. I loved it!!
