Great story, with many layers and characters all of which you believe to be real. Beautifully read. Its a committment though, because its 17 hours and because of all the people you have to keep track of with spanish names and places. Someone suggested using the book as a reference while listening if you get lost. Good idea. If you read Cutting for Stoneor Pillars of the Earth or any other stories like that you wil enjoy this too.
Daniel's experiences in the old deserted spanish home of Julians long lost love. The house becomes a central point for drawing all the characters and sub-plots together.
He is an excellent narrator. His voice never detracts or overwhelms the story itself.
It really is a love story, a book within a book.
I cannot say enough perfect things. Perfectly read. Lawrence Anthony's life on Thula Thula is a dream and true contribution to earth and all its creatures. Highly recommended for a people of all ages.
Mr. King has written another perfect story and it is read perfectly by Will Patton (really wonderful narration). Seems like it may be long, but the hours whiz.
Its a fairy tale. Characters become real and story is absorbing. Mr. Gaiman narrates his own work and has a wonderful reading voice. Very enjoyable with a nicely tied up ending.
Rob Lowe narrates his live excellently. How his life intersects with so many names and faces is amazing. Great to listen to. No sappy stories, just interesting and engaging.
It was a good listen. Sometimes read like a thesis and I would skip ahead. But some of the case studies are very interesting.
Great Chick Lit. Light, funny, well read. Perfect summer diversion. I have enjoyed all her books this one included.
One of those strange but true medical stories that only but the grace and good luck did she find the right doctor. Good listen.
Always like true adventure. Amaizing that this expedition survived. Historical and very engaging.
2nd in the Angel series. More fantastic Angels, God's creations here on earth. Like James Bond from the bible. Quick and exciting read. I liked it.
Strong deep characters. Real people in an unreal version of our world. Did you love Stephen Kings IT or Stand by Me? You will love this story. I did!
