The author weaves two stories into one. Listening to the "old",Ira & Ruth, & the "new"/young , Luke & Sophia, is endearing.
The devotion/loyalty of Ira & Ruth to each other is beautifully described/developed and is inspirational.
The art auction in which the amateur portrait of Ruth is bid for only by Luke which in turn shocks every bidder,including Luke, when this purchase awards the bidder the entire art collection.
The Love Stories
Excellent read by an author who does his historical & geographical homework !
My ranking is 5 stars, but 2 stars goes to the reader. Disappointed by the reader.
The detailed information & clear explanations
He greatly distracted from this excellent book. He lacked the passion of the author & had gross mispronunciations of hundreds of essential words.
Yes, but difficult to absorb with one reading/listening.
The reader/narrator diminished from easy understanding of many critical explanations by his mispronunciations. I was listening & learning from a medical science background.
This IS my #1 audiobook so far !
The author is my favorite character, as he read his writings with great passion & clarity.
As above, very well read & with clear explanation of his information
I experienced excitement over the very helpful information !
This is a must read/hear book for every person. It should be required reading in schools & colleges !
The research on exercise physiology has never been summarized so well before. Gretchen Reynolds does an outstanding job of presenting the research in an especially helpful manner. I am a medical doctor & runner who finds her writing enlightening & refreshing, as well as inspiring.
She is comprehensive, yet summarizes exercise physiology research in an extremely helpful manner.
She reads beautifully with appropriate emphasis in her voice.
It would need to be a documentary. "Even very little exercise preserves the brain, as well as the entire body."
I would recommend this book to everyone.
