Haven't read the print but the audio is well narrated - unusual for an author narration but the author is very engaged and engaging and the material is well researched and well told.
Not really a religious spiritual book but a great historical/biblical account of the times and events surrounding the life of Jesus.
Among the best of the nearly 100 audiobooks I've listened to. Great story with a relaxed pace. Very thoughtful and insightful observations woven into the story arc of a mystery. Great setting in this idylic Quebec hamlet with very interesting characters each of which have their own human backstories...makes you want to read the series to find out what's what with each. Chief Inspector Gamache is a blend of Poirot and Holmes with a comforting charm. Narration was perfect. I may read the ones that Ralph Cosham narrated first.
Very much so as there are several possible endings and though there are twists, the author did not have any convenient tricks or hidden aspects - it's all there for the listener to consider.
The voices and the pace of the story - there are many times that art is being described and he brought the pieces to life with his inflection and tone.
The scenery of the places described - very Canadian. And the poetry. Really enjoyable listen.
I can't imagine anyone not loving this book - as addictive as Grisham but as thought provoking as any 'fine' literature.
The remarkable journey that brought Michael Moore to
Michael Moore - well 'cause its Michael Moore
The Zoey story is very poignant and personal and very well told...especially from Moore's Irish Catholic perspective.
Nice to have an audio book made of of these 'short stories'....easy to read and go back to from time to time.
I thing the American psyche needs to have a dose of real facts and common sense. Elvis is dead. Oswald was the lone shooter. Your president is not Muslim and, so what, if he was. I think Bugliosi is not only settling a debate that's gone on far too long but also sending a message that the general public and the media ought not be feeding off every conspircacy theory.
Laughed out lout throughout. I hadn't watched that many 'Raymond' episodes before listening to this book, but it didn't matter as his own comedy writing and delivery was hilarious. Great summer read.
I really enjoyed reading "Presumed Innocent" two decades ago and remembering both after the book and the moview....how could these people carry on? Turow shows us not only the characters' current existence but how they got there. Turow takes no short cuts as he shows the full emotions of each major character and more often than not (as was the strongest theme in the first book) things are not as they appear.
Narration was excellent - great summer listen.
I am new to audiobooks and after a handful of non-fiction, this was my first foray in trying fiction on an ipod. I am pleased to say that with good story, well told, worked well during my twice daily 30 minute commute to and from work. I have come to take full advantage of audible.com's generous samples to get a feel for the narrator before getting the download - Kerry Shale's brilliant performance of the many characters, richly portrayed through accents, intonation and manners really made this far more than simply listening to a story.
I am starting to look for particular narrators as often as a type of book.
