    Story
    (323)

    In this remarkable dual memoir, film legend Martin Sheen and accomplished actor/filmmaker Emilio Estevez recount their lives as father and son. In alternating chapters—and in voices that are as eloquent as they are different—they narrate stories spanning more than 50 years of family history, and reflect on their journeys into two different kinds of faith.

    Story
    Would you listen to Along the Way: The Journey of a Father and Son again? Why?

    I have listened many times. I enjoy non-fiction. This is articulate, honest and believable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The personal honesty and the two different takes on the same events.


    What about Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez ’s performance did you like?

    Great voices and I always enjoy a writer with a good voice. No one reads it like the writer - but not all writers have good voices. Martin and Emilio do.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Probably on a long flight... I never have that much time all at once.


    Any additional comments?

    The love this father and son have for each other is heartwarming. Great challenges could have split them apart, but the love and tough love / honesty carried the day.

    Story

    When Barbara Kingsolver and her family move from suburban Arizona to rural Appalachia, they take on a new challenge: to spend a year on a locally-produced diet, paying close attention to the provenance of all they consume. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle follows the family through the first year of their experiment.

    Story
    What did you love best about Animal, Vegetable, Miracle?

    Kingsolver tackles a big issue in a personal perspective with eloquence.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Food choices impact our health, our community and our world - it can seem like too big of a topic for one person to make a difference. This story brings it to a level where we can understand that small choices can have a big impact.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoy their voices. I think their three voices with three perspectives works well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I enjoyed the entire book. It was interesting to hear about their food choices when travelling.


    Any additional comments?

    I try to get everyone I know to read this book.

    Story
    (16)

    In his most challenging journey to date, Palin tackles the Himalayas, the greatest mountain range on earth. It is a virtually unbroken wall of rock stretching 1,800 miles from the borders of Afghanistan to south-west China. Penetrated but never conquered, it remains the world's most majestic natural barrier, a magnificent wilderness that shapes the history and politics of Asia to this day.

    Story
    What did you love best about Himalaya?

    Palin is so direct, honest and revealing about his feelings and reactions to new experiences. He is a avid traveller - boldly going places that I will probably never be able to go to and giving me the feeling I have been there too.


    What other book might you compare Himalaya to and why?

    Palin is so much "happier" than Paul Theroux's travel books - Palin's enthusiasm to "be going" and to meet and visit with new people is the BEST of travel narrative!


    What about Michael Palin’s performance did you like?

    No one reads a books quite like the author. Palin has a great voice.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It often makes me laugh. Palin is a funny man. He is the person you want around in times of trouble - flexible, intently interested in "the present", letting go of plans that will no longer work. Even when talking about things that are being lost, polluted, or ruined the sadness is offset by the simple and yet powerful human adaptations to difficult situations.


    Any additional comments?

    Palin's books, movies and audio books are a wonderful way to see the world in the company of a happy, good natured traveller!
