Not sure. I really enjoyed the family history and exploration of the relationships. I also enjoyed hearing about Buffett's philosophies, however part of it read somewhat dry.
Already reading a few books.
Don't know enough narrators to recommend one.
Stick to a simple philosophy and trust your instincts. Research, research, research!
The story was amazing! I am so in love with Thula Thula and how Lawrence has built such an amazing game reserve. The image of this big burly man who runs a game reserve, developing such a tender relationship with a herd of elephants.
Wow, there were so many. I think my favorite moment was when the herd made their way to the lodge and splashed in the pool and almost came all the way into the house to see Lawrence. So sweet!
He made it all seem like a mystery, like anything could happen next. At first I didn't like it, but in the end it was such a delightful book I didn't mind.
When baby Thula passed and they decided to give her body back to the herd.
Probably one of my most favorite stories of all time! I now must visit Thula Thula in real life!
Yes! It's a great illustration of how women get in their own way. I never recognized that about myself until I read this book. There is a lot to absorb, great stats and stories.
The Male Factor. That book also has great insight into how men think and how women sometimes sabotage their own efforts by not understanding how men think.
No, but she was great!
Yes I would. I'd like to further explore the character profile of Anna and Stiva, her first husband.
It's a fascinating profile of Russian society and I'm intrigued about how women were treated and how Tolstoy explores their emotions...especially Anna's.
Not possible! Too much to absorb and of course too long.
The characters seemed real, normal. They weren't overly dramatized...just normal people.
The main character. Her self-perception and the stories she told herself were funny.
What I loved about the narrator is that she actually sang the portions that should be sung. Great job!
I had watched the video with Oprah before I bought the book. I was then unfortunately looking for the story about how she met her husband.
Perhaps. I found the story a little slow.
The narrator seemed to be stretching it when it came to expressing emotion....it often felt fake to me.
Despite my feedback, yes I did enjoy this book.
I realy wish the author had narrated it herself. Per the Oprah interview there are places that I think she's emphasize differently than the narrator did.
I bow down to Tina Fey. I so love how she makes no apologies for being a smart, outspoken, competitive woman! What a great role model!
The book is one of the best on audible. Her characterization of the various voices is fantastic...the very reason I love audible vs. reading. The story is fantastic as well. She addresses all the stuff we want to hear about. Fantastic book!
This is an amazing story. Although initially it seems that the descriptive language is arduious, the story does eventually grab you and you learn to love how she describes ever action and emotion as if it's in slow motion. I very much enjoyed this book!
She moved through the story with grace and humor. It wasn't overly flowery but written in a way that illustrates someone who is very present in her own life. I admire that.
She mentioned how she admires Elizabeth Gilbert and honestly it does remind me of Elizabeth's story of her marriage.
