The characters were flat, not layered. The story flashed back and forth between characters making it confusing to follow rather than showing their connections. There was no point to the story other than to show how one event can affect many boring people in a number of ways. The movie "Crash" did an incredible job of making that same point with characters who were layered and interesting. I recommend that movie if you want to see a well-made point. I would not recommend this book.
All of them.
This is a multi-layered story. There are a lot of characters who all grow and become more full bodied as the story goes on. I didn't want it to end because these people had become real to me and I knew I would miss them when the book ended. I enjoyed every minute of this book. This is not a fancy, gimmicky or racy novel; it is character-driven and the characters are very well written.
I enjoyed his other books and wanted to find out more. This one was not as good, I thought. It seemed like the author was trying to continue a good thing and had run out of interesting ideas. I did find his thoughts about new insights to be interesting but the story line to get there was flat.
I don't know that I could say that I loved the story, because it was hard to see myself having to go through something that could really happen. However, it was a brilliant and gripping portrayal of what a father and son had to go through in their apocalyptic world.
It's an incredible, true story so well-written I almost felt like I was there. I could see the characters and environments vividly as the story unfolded. I loved the book and sent it to my father who was a WWII vet who flew in the South Pacific during the war.
Louis, of course. He was an ordinary man who did extraordinary things and the author was able to show him in a very full and layered fashion.
That's very hard to say - there were so many different times and places.
Yes, when Louis was able to forgive and went back to Japan to face his captors.
I wasn't sure I would like it when I started listening but quickly got involved and enjoyed it so much I bought the rest of the series because I needed to find out what happens to all these interesting people.
He's able to change his voice so characters are easily identified.
I'm not sure but one thing I wouldn't do is focus on the sexual parts like the TV show does. There is far more more to the story than that.
