I chose this selection because I generally like the short story form and it was free. I wasn't expecting a formula romance, and I'm not a big fan of romance stories. If I had been buying it, I might have noticed that it was published by Harlequin and known it wasn't my type of story.
The performance was fine and the story had a reasonable set up but patent and predictable. I thought it lacked depth and the little bit of intrigue didn't really go far enough.
I listened to this book off and on and ended up listening to a lot of the book more than once. I found it enlightening to have a scientific reason for behavior most of us have experienced. Even though the format of the book and/or the narration is a little hokey, I gain so much from listening that it didn't bother me and maybe even helped me remember it better.
My reason for finally reviewing this book that I listened to over a year ago, is that I so frequently find myself telling others about this book, what I learned from it and how it helped me manage my employees and even improve our training methods.
Worth listening to in my opinion.
Not having read the book, I can't compare audio to print but I really enjoyed the audio. The reader's voices brought so much depth of character. It was engrossing. And - I haven't seen the movie.
Abilene was my favorite. I suppose because she was the main thread of the story but I loved her outlook on life and how she faced everything with thoughtfulness and courage.
This was the first time I had listened to these narrators
It was serendipitous that my daughter and I listened to this while driving from Colorado to Georgia. It wasn't intentional to connect the South and the book but it was a little funny to be listening to all those Southern voices in the book and then begin to hear them all around us. I felt like I was stepping into the book; not by actions or behavior of anyone, but by the melodic voices around us.
