Listening to this has helped me understand what my husband and daughter are thinking, and why they do some of the crazy things they do. I am more sympathetic now.
I read this years ago and loved it Now my daughter is reading it in school so I decided to take a listen. I am so glad I did. As a "real" adult with daughters this adds a different perspective with much more depth. I enjoyed this all over again, for some of the same reasons, and some new ones.
Great twist. The language is descriptive, but now flowery. I loved it. Even when I knew it was coming to an end I just couldnt wait! Get this book!!
This is a fabulous mix of history and drama. My daughter rows for her school and it gave me a much better understanding of what is required of her. This is perhaps the epitome of a team sport. The metaphor for life is not missed here either. Once I finished listening I bought it for her and she is 1/2 done and she can't put it down. She's 12 and it's completely appropriate and should be required for young athletes.
This was a little hard to follow at first because of the accents. After a bit it did become easier and I liked the story. It was sad, and it did portray things in what I imagine to be a realistic way. But this is not a feel good story.
It took me a bit to become interested, but eventually I liked it. It seems to be brutally honest about how things are in India.
I could not put this down. This story continues to be on my mind even though I finished it weeks ago.
It's hard to believe that this still goes on, and we as a nation turn the other cheek.
It was just OK. Very predictable I thought. I did listen all the way through, but it wasn't worth the credit.
When I first started to listen I thought that the narrator doing the voices was a little hokey. But she's really good and I have enjoyed this book immensely... I'm not quite finished and already I'm disappointed that it's at the end. Really good listen.
