Yes, hearing him tell his story tunes you in to the real emotion behind it all.
I have great admiration for Dan Rather. It's never easy to go against the popular opinion but sometimes it is necessary. Dan is an excellent example of how to do that with grace and dignity.
I wanted to give him a standing ovation a the end of this book!!!
Yes! This book is so beautifully written and so full of meaningful content that I would listen again in hopes of catching anything missed the first time.
Danny himself. He is a GREAT storyteller and has quite a story to tell!
If you liked Angela's Ashes, then The Boy At The Gate is an absolute MUST read!! I am a HUGE fan of Frank McCourt and never thought anyone would be able to come close to being compared to him. Then I met Danny. Danny's story is heart wrenching and heart warming all at the same time. What an extraordinary man and an extraordinary storyteller! Hearing him tell the story in his own voice is absolutely priceless. I literally laughed and cried at the same time on multiple occasions. I cannot sing the praises of this book high enough. I have suggested it to everyone I know!
Molly Walling? Yes. Angela Rice? NO
Great story of family secrets.
No feeling whatsoever!! VERY robotic in speaking. Punctuation was awful and absolutely NO feel for the southern dialect which is SUPER important in this particular book. The narrator is SO bad that it is hard to stay focused on the actual story line.
If I were the author of this book I would be furious with the narrator for ruining my writing.
Very informative. Everyone should read this book! We, as humans, tend to not question when something is labeled as a "religion". In reality we need to remember to ALWAYS question when something just doesn't feel right.
Maybe....good story but the narrator was terrible.
It seemed as though she was only reading the words and was unaware of WHAT she was reading. Her descriptions of sad and heart wrenching moments come through in the words but are read in a light and happy tone of voice. VERY strange. Almost creepy.
Had I been the author of this book I would've been disappointed in how my life was presented by this narrator.
