I haven't read the print version so I can't make an informed choice.
I liked how the running helped him become a disciplined writer and gave structure to his life.
One in which he noticed other regular runners in his running time/spot and befriends them in his mind.
Flannagan uses amazing language to unravel the intertwined lives of those effected by a POW camp in Thailand during WWII. He is able to show nuance in a way that elicits compassion from the listener/reader.
Started and ended strong but dragged in the middle. Loved that the characters learned along the way.
The complex and possibly unreliable narrator.
The reveal. I don't want to spoil it, but it all makes sense in the end.
He has a wonderful voice and was incredibly convincing as the narrator.
Bendrix, the narrator is the one whom we understand best. We don't really get to know Sarah, his love. She is more of a phantom, a memory.
What is reality?
When the two main characters finally meet.
There were three narrators, one for each character, and they each brought personality and emotion to their performance, Alison Hiroto especially. It really brought the work alive and helped keep perspectives straight. One of the best narrations I have heard. I'd give it 6 stars if I could.
Yes, but unfortunately do it's length that was not possible! Not that I am complaining because I also didn't want it to end!
Yes, it is a great book for both introverts and extroverts to help understand why each react differently to the same situations.
This question doesn't really apply since this book is a work of non-fiction.
The narration fits with the premise in that it has a quiet intensity to it.
I liked listening to this book in chunks so that I could digest what I was learning, but you could listen to it all at once if you wanted.
Plants manipulate humans
I loved the case study approach Pollan took to illustrate greater truths about the interconnectivity between plants and humans.
I loved the scenes in which Pollan was in his own garden exploring what he was learning in his own patch of land.
Do we control what we plant or does it control us?
