interesting characters, very well written. thoroughly enjoyed this book. if you like high quality fiction, you'll love this book.
poignant, well-written, gripping
so many but I particularly enjoyed his time with Walt
pancake breakfast with his mother
I would give this 4.5 stars if I could. Leonard is a wonderful, interesting character. His view of life and people is touching and, at times, comical. I'm a 60+ attorney, grandma and avid reader. I don't have much free time so I am pretty particular about books I bother to write reviews about but this one was really hard to put this down. beautifully written. If you liked Goldfinch, you'll enjoy this.
yes. the narrators are all terrific. the interview with Lamb at the end was a bonus you don't get in print.
Orion. a thoughtful and kind person.
articulate, well-paced, made the characters real.
excellent writer, story teller. sometimes hard to listen to but only because the characters were so authentic.
I bought this book on a whim and was really glad I did. The writing is good and the story line keeps your interest. Parents of teenagers will find it particularly interesting. Raises challenging moral dilemmas without being preachy.
I am NOT a fan of Stephen King but this book was totally different from the few others of his that I've read, including The Dome which was terrible. I found this story captivating and it was well-written and the narration was good too. You'll never read a story like this one. Well done, King.
Nothing better than a well-written long book that is well-narrated and tells a unique story. A few weak points towards the end but still one of the best books I've ready in a while.
I would not have bought this if I'd realized it was chick lit. Being cheap, I forced myself to listen to the whole book. Not a literary piece but okay if you are into this type of book. I must not have read the reviews closely enough or listened to the sample recording.
I really enjoyed this book. The author has great skill in telling an interesting story with complex and rich characters. Definitely a step above the usual contemporary fiction. It was well-written and narrator was wonderful. I don't often write reviews but had to write one for this. Couldn't put it down.
I really enjoyed this book and hated to see it end. Well written and rich characters. I don't write many reviews but had to put in a recommendation for this. If you like well-written fiction, you'll love this book.
the book, of course, is a classic. i'm taking the time to write a review to warn potential listeners to spend more time than i did listening to the sample. there are frequent, noticeable pauses and in some of them you can hear the narrator swallow. i've listened to over 30 books and never noticed this before. other than this awkwardness, her speech and tone are very good and appropriately convey Austen's skill with language.
