This book was very enjoyable..the characters were fully developed, it had a quick pace and having two readers was a nice change. I look forward to reading more of E Lynn Harris' books.
I love dogs...thought oh great...it was horrible. I could not make myself listen it.
I Had a bit of a hard time in the beginning of the book, but kept listening. It got much better and I also came to really appreciate the reader as he helped to keep the characters seperate by his differing voices. I thought the ending dropped off a little as well, not all characters were wrapped up, but still I thought it was quite an enjoyable read.
This audiobook had it all. A great writer, a compelling story and a terrific reader. I agree that the subject is heavy and it was worth every minute of my time. I haven't stopped thinking about 72 Hour Hold. It has increased my compassion for parents of mentally ill children and for individuals who have mental illness or a brain disease as Ms. Campbell puts it. I highly reccomend this book.
Armistead's voice is wonderful as is his use of language. I didn't like the ending he chose but I loved the story, I loved his voice. I want there to be a sequal...
This was a great book. It was somewhat difficult on the front end to get all of the characters straight, in fact at times I relistened to some of the parts. Once I understood who all of the players were, I really got interested in the story.
Just when I thought I had the story all figured out, it took a surprise turn. Then I thought the story was over and it took yet another turn.
I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.
