The narration is the one thing I had trouble with...his tone and reading style I did find annoying, I'm sad to say. I still listened to this audio twice because I was so encouraged by the stories and content but had to push myself passed the narration style. I appreciate that the author wanted to perform the reading but his choppiness and very predictable inflections at the end of every sentence made the audio part...sorry I have to say it...annoying.
I completely love the finding a deeper purpose stories of not only TOMS but many other stories included. It made me very envious of all the people that found their own purpose and greater purpose because it helped others. Very likely I will listen to this audio a 3rd time and hope inspiration hits me square in the face.
I had to read this book in my 8th grade English class...and reading was not something on my want to do list of activities. So when my daughter received the same book assignment, I wanted to help her out and thought listening to audio will make it better. Just intending to be a member for those 3 months, I ended up enjoying listening vs reading. (I tend to gain weight by reading books so listening to the books solved that problem LOL)
Back to Mrs. Mike, I sure appreciated the story better now than when I was forced to read it in high school. Mrs Mike is a great story. I feel in love with the characters and the story of their lives. It made me want to re-visit the classics from HS.
