I rarely re-listen to books, but this one deserves it. Great narration by John Pruden ! He captured the characters with his voice and intonation perfectly.
The narrator, Eli, is of course the best.
I haven't listened to him previously, but based on this, I am looking for more books narrated by him.
This is reminiscent of a Joe R. Lansdale story, similar flawed but sympathetic characters and a dry humor that I found appealing. Loved it !
I enjoyed everything about this book - the characters, the narrative, the story. Excellent narration by Kathe Mazur. She brought emotional resonance to the story. This is one of the best books I've listened to this year !
I could not listen to the entire audio. There was too much philosophical musing. Even the excellent narrators could not keep my interest.
It was a little long for such a light-weight story, so some editing to tighten up the plot would have been a good thing.
The characters weren't original, and the mix of ghost story and post WWI combat stress was strained. The writing was atmospheric, but not particularly suspenseful.
Great job of voicing the different characters. The narration was excellent !
Yes, this would make a good movie. The characters are so poorly defined in the book that just about any age-appropriate actors could play them.
The story was predicable but pleasant, definitely chick lit. Amy Rubinate's excellent narration kept me interested, otherwise, it would have been too predicable. When the goats are the most interesting "characters" in a story, it's not a compelling book.
Maybe, if I was in the mood for more chick lit
This was a compelling story, but the first half was marred by the monotone of the male narrator. Tavia Gilbert narrated the second half of the book, and she was excellent, as always.
This reminded me of "The Silent Wife" and "Gone Girl". All (3) narratives are told from alternating POV.
The ending was beautiful, hopeful, and sweet. Vivid and lovely prose throughout.
It was like listening to a play ! The narrator did a fantastic job of creating characters with her voice.
I found some of the plot to be predicable, but the unique character made it an interesting story. Not sure if this would be of interest to everyone. It's not quite a Western, not quite a historical drama, not quite a romance, although there are elements of all of these genres.
I believe this her only audio performance. I would definitely listen to others.
Not sure if I would recommend this one. It was a little too chick lit for me. I also felt that the ending was just too convenient, everything neatly wrapped up, and a little unsatisfying.
My favorite character was Peggy, and I wish there had been more emphasis on her. I got really tired of Alba, she seemed just too wishy-washy to be a solid heroine.Elizabeth Sastre's narration was outstanding. Next time, I hope she has better material to work with.
I enjoyed the narration. Justine Eyre did an excellent job with the German pronunciation and with voicing the characters. The story was interesting up to a point, but it dragged out a bit and the ending felt too pat and a bit rushed.
I would listen to her again. This was the first time I heard her narration.
It was a quick listen in spite of the slow parts
I felt the narrative was disjointed, jumping from 1929, then back to pre-WWI. I also found the main character, Maisie, to be inconsistent in one very important way. ( I won't disclose, since it concerns the emotional heart of the story)
Her entire performance was excellent, even the singing ! I hope she will perform future audio books.
This would make a good movie or TV series.
Suspenseful, emotional, and compelling
The entire story was compelling. It was difficult to turn it off!
A wonderful narrator ! I would like to hear more of her narration
I was drawn into this story by the elegance of the prose and the intimacy of the narration. I related to the emotions of the first person narrator.
Loved it !
