I kept thinking things would get better for the people in the story.
The book is well written.
I usually listen to classics and can't really find a good author that develops characters while keeping the story simple & entertaining. Doerr is exceptional.
The story was awful and yet it was about experiences that people had to endure. I'm grateful I didn't live during the era the story was written in and I'm glad I finished the book...thinking about the characters and what they went through makes my life seem like a vacation.
Very well done & very well read. I do recommend this book. I cried and cried at the end, but also it gave me hope.
Yes. I don't think I could of read the book but b/c I spend so much time in a car, I found it interesting to listen to.
I really enjoyed this book, it was well written. The narrator did a good job with the characters voices and an Irish brogue.
Anna kept her wits about her when most people would of run away.
The head wife, but I can't spell her name.
Shocked at the Kings drastic mood swings.
I enjoyed the book and watched the latest movie with Jody Foster in it to get a sense of the country. The book was better at telling the story and of course explaining the characters that the movie just skimmed over.
I loved it!
A story written by Dumas read by John Lee is a real treat!
Pounder did a wonderful job narrating the story.
An easy to listen to story.
I started listening to this on an overnight train from Paris to Italy and I had to stop because I got scared! Being drawn into a story so much that I become frightened is fun, but I have to admit, that I had more fun listening in a familiar environment with a fuzzy blanket. :-)
I loved this story and would listen to it again!
When Mr. Scrooge really laughed for the 1st time.
Empathy in the voices of the characters.
When Elphaba tried to talk to Nessa Rose about Oz and her treatment of animals.
The different characters he portrayed.
The loyalty of the animals that Phabula took care of.
Glad I listened to this book. The story wasn't about what I expected it to be about.
