I bought it recently on the recommendation of someone in the monthly newsletter. I have been recently interested in Australia and this was a fun way of traveling through it. This Bryson guy is a real kick and it was fun, light commute "read"!
I am about to read "A Walk in the Woods" by Bryson.
Disappointed in the ending; felt like there should have been more.
Although I had a difficult time knowing what period the author was speaking about some time, I was able to follow the story line. I listen primarily when I commute so I start and stop the book frequently.
Loved the story and kept guessing till the last minute where the story line would end up. Loved the characters. Looking forward to listening to her other book.
I didn't get bored.
Loved, loved, loved it! Best produced audio book I have ever listened too also. I am in love with Will Patton (been a fan of his acting for years), oh, what a voice! Perfectly sexy for this love story. And to think that this character was very similar to a real person makes it all the more fascinating. Learned about about that early 1800's period which is sort of a blank slate for me--the movement of the Indians also. Makes you really love Andrew Jackson, doesn't it?!
Great story but terrible narrator or audio production. My previous read was Thirteen Moons w/Will Patton and music; this book is tough to listen to.
I read this last summer before it came out on audio; loved it because it sucks you right in, like a good book should! I have gone on to read other books about that period.
Loved this book; it was such a piece of wonderful fluff. I love the moral dilemma that Andrea experiences working for the boss from hell and the description of the fashion world was engrossing. I would have gotten the book sooner had I known the narrator was the same lady that did Memoirs of a Geisha--also a great book!
