Great holiday book especially for anglophiles!
Georgie and Darcy's happy ending.
Wonderful narration giving a great performance of numerous characters.
Yes. I've already listened to it twice. There are so many interesting stories and ideas presented. Once was not enough. I'll revisit this book often for inspiration and ideas.
I appreciated the all the stories. Reading about persons that initially don't meet society's expections or molds and yet persevere & succeed in finding passion in their lives...very hopeful.
Affirmed my philosophy of the importance of an open mind - limitless possiblilites and new approaches to learning.
Yes, especially if the person is a fan of the author.
I've read that Mr. Ondaatje is not big on character development. He also leaves a number of unanswered questions in the story. All of these techniques put more responsibility on the reader. In this book he points out that with art, the artists expression is not complete without the viewer. So, in this books, his writing is not complete until we, the reader, finish the story.
It was an adequate performance, however I generally appreciate a narrator that uses more inflection.
Yes, for me it was.
Mr. Ondaatje has a keen use of description and metaphor and I enjoyed numerous passages.
