My 8 year old was entranced by this book as was I. The naration was great. Perfect solution when I'm too tired to read to him at night. We snuggle together to listen to Audible stories. Thank you!
I knew nothing of this book when I rushed to download it for a long road trip. But the high ratings inspired me to buy it. I just finished listening to the first 1/3 of the book and am swept away by the brilliant reading, the rich prose, and characters so real that I feel like I'm somehow in the story. I want to be friends with these women - converse with them - explore and wonder with them. It will take your breath away.
I felt a loss when the story ended. I wanted it to go on forever. The characters become friends that you know you'll sadly never see again. The audio was amazing - so well read (aka acted) that I felt like I was "watching" a play. I hear that they're turning the book into a movie. How will they do it -- the complexity and time travel seems overwhelmingly complicated to put on film. But I'll be first in line to see it.
The narration is fabulous, the story compelling. At first I thought, "Why do I want to listen to a 9 hour story about which I know the ending?" Worth every minute. I'm sorry it had to end.
