I agree with many of the reviews. Yes, it is long. Yes, sometimes I loose track of the characters. Yes, the naration is wonderfu. But very few people have said how funny the dialog is. I'm listening over several weeks' time, and not a day goes by without a good laugh.
I liked the reading by the author.
I enjoyed the contemporary subject matter and technology. Thank you to Barbara Kingsolver for the research she did to put together this story in a believable way. Besides the science, she talked about scientists in a respectful way. I also liked her story of the family.
The lack of hope.
I would not bother to read a follow up book.
These characters were so uknlikable. It made me sad to read "Gone Girl". Several of my friends read it and liked it. They told me to keep reading: it gets better. I wish I had stopped it about a third of the way through.I wil give the auther credit for a very complex story in which a lot of loose ends got tied off.
I loved the naration by all of the characters. The story was compelling. I have suggested my friends read this book if this is the type of story they like.
Family saga reminds my a bit of "New York the Novel" and "Carribean".
Eli's character was my favorite, but I liked the contrast between them all.
This was great for a long road trip.
Compassionate, uplifting, meaningful.
I liked the way I felt reading the book. It gave me inspiration to be kind to strangers.
Very thought provoking. I found myself thinking about this story a lot. I'm glad there was so much love and not too much anger in the book.
The Narrater was so good. Enjoyed the story.
The plot was involved and interesting.
Kate Reading has a wonderful nack for accents.
Which name do we give to Alice?
I will look for more books by this auther and nannater.
I enjoyed to twists and turns of the story. I thought I knew what happened, but in the end, I found out more.
The snowy, scarey night in the woods.
Seeing the children play with kindling.
This book reminded me so often of my childhood at my grandparents' farm in the Tennessee mountains.
The female protagonist is strong, smart and kind. The story really gives you a sence of time and place.
Rebecca gave the various characters good voices.
