I haven't read the print version but I LOVED this audio version.
Death's attachment to one little girl. Seeing little snippets of her life. It was all too fantastic to be summed up in a little blurb.
When Leisel is looking for Max in the crowd and finds him. It was so powerful. Also: her attachment to her foster father.
I both laughed and cried. Several dozen times. This book is just that good.
I love Mindy's voice in her writing. It's funny and observational and adorable.
Everything. It's a masterpiece. Seriously, I've listened to it like 8 times.
YES. I read the book and it was wonderful but their voices really brought it to life in a way I could not have expected.
Yes. And I did. Several times.
This book makes you feel like Mindy is your best friend in the whole wide world. I love it and it's MUCH better than Bossy Pants.
Laughing cancer poetry.
Hazel. She's so strong and determined. She cares so much. She doesn't make everything about her, even though she's the protagonist, she's still deeply thoughtful and sympathetic. She just cares about her friends and family after she's gone and the story reveals that she's not just another cancer kid to be pitied.
The scene with Hazel and Augustus in Holland, at Anne Frank's house.
The book is bone dry. I love Jon Stewart and the Daily show. But there wasn't any humor. The few mildly funny moments were by Samantha Bee. I didn't actually laugh ONCE during the whole audiobook. I just kept waiting for it to get funny, and it didn't.
Yes/No. I don't think I will be getting any of Jon Stewart's audio books again. I like the humor genre in general, but this is not humorous.
I love his voice but the way the book is written just makes it seem like a bitchy text book.
All of them.
Absolutely. It's one of my all time favorite books.
Elizabeth Bennett. I mean, come on. Of course. Close second - Mr. Darcy.
I haven't listened to any of her other narrations but she played all of the characters very distinctly and well. Elizabeth's mom is a little screechy but she also is in print, so it works.
Hahaha. Seriously? Colin Firth BBC version. Go watch it.
I haven't read the print version but I really enjoyed Keltie's narration.
She's so genuine and earnest. Her vulnerability doesn't come across as weakness, it shows her strength. So many interesting things, written so beautifully.
Her miscarriage and subsequent spiral into the party life was really powerful. How she climbed her way out of that and didn't let it make her bitter is inspiring.
Hadley. She's the protagonist and her feelings about her life and her husband are wonderfully detailed and endearing.
I loved her voice. It lended itself very nicely to this story.
Several. You know she loved Ernest and he loved her but she had to let him go. Beautiful.
I might recommend this book depending on the friend. It takes a while to get adjusted to all of the bickering and back and forth.
I don't think I would. I wasn't very invested in the characters. The twists were good but they'd be better if I cared more about the characters.
No, I have not listened to their other narrations but this narration was very good. Good voices, cadence, accents.
