This book is written in the "I", a man, so at first I had a little trouble getting it. But, it didn't take long until I was very interested in the story as well as attached to the characters. The story has such depth and is loaded with true meanings of life. Tears and laughter at times, I truly love 'Uncle Willie'. This story will stay with me and I would even listen to it again. Thanks Mr. Martin and I sure look forward to your other books. I would like an audio to be made of the book "When Crickets Cry" because it was recommended to me by a friend as the "best book she had ever read" - she is an 84-year-old avid reader. /debR
Truly a book I could not put down and when I had to, I could not wait to keep listening. This is one of the best narrations and stories I have read out of my collection of over 100 audiobooks.
To me this story was metaphorical in many areas. Very interesting on a deeper level. Good and evil, attitude and perception, etc. I liked it and the reader was perfect.
The story is great, such believable characters as well as places - especially when read by Mr. Stechschulte. He is the best narrator. Enjoyed the book very much. I like it when I feel as though I know the people and can feel or see what they are experiencing and Mr. Stechschulte surely makes this happen.
The story line is very intriguing. I have one comment regarding the reading however. There was not enough pausing between scenes of times past and present, nor between scenes. It was rather difficult to follow. A bit longer pause between time changes and scenes would have made it better, in my opinion. Very good otherwise.
I very much enjoyed this story. The reality was felt in both good as well as heartbreaking situations. The narrator can make a book, and I enjoyed this narrator.
