I listened in my car and I didn't want to get out. I found myself thinking about both the theology and the zoology of survival as the book unfolded, when I was not in the car. The main charachter is passionate for life from both perspectives, which is exciting to the listener. I could feel his joys, fears, and pain. The reader is perfect for this book, with his clearly understood Indian accent.
Simple plot. The wealthy high-achievers are all bad, and the poor street people are all victims. Anti-Republican recession mentality?
Now that I'm done with the book, I actually miss the characters. I enjoyed every minute of this book and was sorry when it was over.
I kept thinking "why am I reading this book?" I expected it to get better or more interesting, and it never happened.
Although I am certainly not an athiest, I found this book thought provoking.
One could sum up this book in one sentence.Why waste 4 hours?
I found myself thinking about this book weeks after I finished hearing it. Thought provoking. Left me with some unanswered questions.
I enjoyed hearing Charles Frazier tell me the story. Once you get used to the charachters and the way the story is told, it was a glimpse into an other wartime...a reminder that there are tough times and threats to our civilization in every era. It was read in a way that you could imagine the charachters of that time to have spoken.
