I liked the "idea" of the book. I didn't like anything else...
A different narrator may have made it a 3 star overall experience. As it is,
The mom. A single mom raising two boys, one with special needs, advocating all the time, trying to do her best for her son with special needs. Jodi Pcoult displays the way a good mom loses sight of the forest for the trees, and how this one lost sight of the needs of her other son, herself, and her family as a whole, while focusing with laser precision on what one of her boys needed. I like how very human this mom is portrayed to be, flawed, but likable.
The narrators were so good...they never, ever "got in the way" of the story. Great choice of narrators.
Jacob. He is a combination of kids I love in my real life...
Fantastic audible, worth 2 credits, but I am glad it was only one!
compelling story, sympathetic character,
The scene in the apartment house when he sleeps with his arm through a hole in the wall to comfort his "sister" friend. His escape from the orphanage home after his horrific understanding of what was to become of him and his friend...
Main character, but his relationships were so strong, that they were outstanding.
I have been raving about this audible book, and plan to buy it as gifts.
I want more!
The judges when they realized they may have been outsmarted.
In the Summons, the scene with the bricks thrown through the windows. In TheBrethren, the release of the Brethren.
This was a great value... One credit for two fabulous reads/listens...
Having to try so hard to understand the dialog.
I can't get far enough into it to make a determination.
Top 5 percent. I didn't want to turn it off for any reason.
I love the unexpected,unpredictable parts. I loved the parts that made me laugh that I may just borrow in my own life: "torch"!
Kathleen wilhoite's performance was brilliant! I think I loved her portrayal of "the Admin" most.
Yes...but it would be a spoiler to post it
Funny, emotionally touching, suspenseful, quirky, and real.
Yes. I love them all.
I love her writing, her storyline, her, characters, her voice, her narration... More, please!
I will listen to Joyce Bean's narration again. The narration is fine.
I really wanted to like it. I got through half of it, and finally realized I don't want to waste time trying to enjoy something I just don't. I was disappointed. Narration was fine.
