I still love Frank McCourt's reading, but he seems to have found a forum for complaining in this book...I don't feel any sense of direction, we move back and forward in time, but through it all he has a lot to gripe about. In Angela's Ashes especially there was no hint of this. I do appreciate that he sheds light on how demanding a profession teaching is. Having trouble getting through the book because often I don't want to listen to his negativity.
into the mind of a creative artist. Dylan describes the unfolding of his career, as well as his artistic process. If you love Dylan's music, you'll want this book! Sean Penn does a fine job reading. I for one will be waiting eagerly for Volume Two.
Wiesel simply tells the horrifying facts, and we need this information so that we can begin to understand the Holocaust. I was never bored or emotionally overwhelmed listening to this book--just completely engaged. The reader is familiar to me and one of my favorites.
Great, rollicking story...both hilariously funny, and heart-rendingly sad. I highly recommend it!
It was good to read the completion of this story and find out how all the characters ended up. This has been an enjoyable series...Diana Gabaldon is a very imaginative writer.
Some of the greatest poems ever written, read beautifully by poets, and introduced with information about both the poet and the poem. If you like poetry at all you cannot go wrong with this book!
