I thoroughly enjoyed this little book--the story was simple, but very well written. And the narration was excellent. It's a short one, but well worth the listen!
I adored Rob Lowe's first book, Stories I Only Tell My Friends, and it is still one of my very favorite audiobooks. I also enjoyed this second memoir, possibly a tiny bit less than the first, but still laughed along with Rob at some very human stories and experiences. As expected, the narration is wonderful once again!
In case you're looking for--or looking to avoid--the love life details, they're not here. Rob Lowe loves and embraces the life he has chosen, and I'm glad he continues to open the door and invite us to peek inside!
**If you listen to the credits, his son wrote and performed the music on this audiobook production--very cool!!**
This is another great read/listen from Mitch Albom!
The premise is certainly intriguing, but the consequences from this type of phenomenon can be unwelcome. And then the story takes a twist ...
I highly recommend all of this author's work, and look forward to more great books in the future--
What an entertaining listen--and a pleasant surprise!
I did not know what to expect when I purchased this memoir--just jumped in blindly, and had a ball!! The stories Dan related were laugh-out-loud funny, and he was the perfect narrator. Good Luck to him and his family--they have a lot of fun years ahead. And hopefully he'll share more stories with us again soon!
I enjoyed this novel--and discovered a new author!!
After I'm Gone is a very good novel about the effects and consequences of someone disappearing to avoid prosecution. It follows the lives of those he left behind--lives that are left wondering and without resolution. I thought I knew how the story would end, but I was wrong and pleasantly surprised at the end. Linda Emond did a great job with the narration as well.
I have already added two of Laura Lippman's books to my wish list, and in the meantime, I recommend After I'm Gone to all who love a good mystery!
My biggest complaint about this book? It was just not long enough!! I could have listened to this man tell his stories for many more hours. But considering his tragic health condition, it's a wonder he even wrote this memoir--and even more miraculous that he narrated the audiobook version.
But I'm truly glad he did--and grateful I listened to it. David Menasche was an inspiration to his students, and can now be an inspiration to us all!!
Goodnight June was a nice, light novel that I enjoyed in between some more serious books recently.
Mixed in to the story are letters (fictional) between June's aunt and Margaret Wise Brown, the author of Goodnight Moon, the beloved children's book. That gave the story an interesting twist, and the book it's title. I also liked the narrator--she does an excellent job!
Overall, I enjoyed, and recommend for a sweet, easy listen.
Admittedly, half way through this book I was ready to give it up. It was very well written--it just wasn't holding my interest. And it seemed to be going nowhere.
I did stick with it, though, and in the end, I'm very glad I did. In the last half, the story came together and picked up momentum--the ending was complete and satisfying. Major Pettigrew was a lovable character, and I'm glad I finished the book to fully appreciate it.
I'm not sure why Audible does not have this book linked to the series, but it is Book Five in a 5-book series that begins with The Walk.
I loved this series--I listened to the final four books consecutively--I just could not stop until the journey was complete. I was so involved, I had to keep reminding myself it was fiction! It is well written and uplifting. And the journey's conclusion was sweet and satisfying.
The author narrates all five books in the series, so I liked the consistency of the same tone and voice throughout. I highly recommend the whole series--and listening to them in order. It is definitely worth the time and credits you will invest--and I hope you enjoy the books as much as I did!!
This book is the fourth in a 5-book series--
I discovered this series with book one--The Walk--and did not realize it was a series at that time. Once I found that there were four more books, I read all four without straying to any other books in between. That's unusual for me--I don't think I've ever read any of my series books back-to-back! I had no desire to leave Alan Christofferson's world while there were still Miles to Go (whoops--that was Book #2!!).
I highly recommend this book, but even more, I recommend reading/listening to the series in order. Enjoy--
After the first two books in this 5-book series, I just had to keep listening. I became so involved with the character's story, I just did not want to leave it and go on to read anything else.
I'm keeping this short and sweet because I want to post a review for all five books. They are all wonderful, and will pull you into a fictional journey that is hard to put down. I speak from experience, and recommend to all!
