I would recommend this book to a friend because the story of perseverance is good. Cheryl overcame her weaknesses and finished what she set out to do.
I enjoyed the book without having to change anything
She has a good voice for narration, but her sibilant " S" kind of got to me. Maybe it was just my headset.
I had a hard time stopping my listen. I was glad that most of the listen was on a long road trip in my car.
Yes I would listen again. It's a classic tale. I laughed out loud at some of Twain's phraseology. I had never read the actual book, but I am so glad I listened to it. I think the dialog was so great between Huck and Jim, especially.
One of the most memorable moments was when Huck and Jim were on the raft, and they bonded while floating down the river. They both learned that each other was not so bad.
I hve not listened to any of Mr. Wood's other performances. I have seen his Hobbit movies and thought he was great in them as well.
I listened to the book mostly while out for my daily walk. So, I got about 45 minute sessions. I probably would not listen to any book all in one sitting.
This book was a nice love story. I guess I need to find an actual history book to read more about the day to day lives in the relocation camps.
The most interesting aspect was the fact that so much of the Japanese people's belongings had to be left behind or destroyed when they were relocated.
The intonation of the character's voices was very good
Yes on the movie or TV show. No comment on the actors.
I was hoping to hear more about the day to day life in the relocation camps.
I think the subject matter of this book might be interesting. However, Sarah Vowell is not a good narrator. Her voice is monotone and it makes it hard for me to listen without getting distracted. This book should be narrated by someone else. I was also disappointed that that other narrators only had cameo appearances that didn't really make sense to me. Sorry Sarah, and your producers, this book just didn't do it for me.
This is the 2nd dramatization I have bought from Audible ( A Streetcar Named Desire was the first). I really loved the story and the actors who presented it, but the way it is broken up into segments with old timey music at the beginning and end got irritating to me. There is a synopsis of the prior segment at the beginning of each new segment, which is OK, but the music.....arrgh.
I didn't find myself laughing out loud at this book, like I usually do with Hiaasen. Maybe the narrator just didn't do it for me. I liked Nature Girl and Skinny Dip much better.
