This was a vitally important work for understanding what is going on in our present day with corporations running everything. It was clearly narrated. I couldn't listen straight through as I had to stop and ponder, aghast at times. This should be required reading before the next election.
A fascinating story about a young child living in poor India who gets hopelessly lost, yet ends up in a better place. Telling about the life of a poor illiterate Indian boy from that child's point of view was a unique way to present the squalor. Then to contrast it with his views of the area after living most of his life as an Australian made it even more interesting. The narrator was excellent, using an Indian accent when appropriate but still making everything clear. Excellent listen!
The narrator's accents were inconsistent so I wasn't always sure who was talking. And why use an accent for something Slava wrote if Slava didn't have an accent. I didn't particularly enjoy the story either. It didn't hold my interest and I would have to rewind when I realized I had missed a lot.
Worthwhile listen about importance of exercise for everyone, even those not trying to get in shape or lose weight. At times I was so inspired to work out that I had to take the audiobook to the treadmill. My biggest complaint was that the narrator didn't know how to pronounce the names of drugs and biochemicals. A little research before beginning the narration would have improved the quality immensely.
This book was difficult to get into. I had to start over because I was not following the thread of the story. The second time I managed to finish it, but still wanted it to be over so many times! The second half of the book was much more interesting than the first half, and I wished I had a hard copy book to be able to flip back to the beginning and try to figure out who all those people were that he had met prior to ending up at Nurse Kennedy's house.
Gone Girl was one of the more captivating listens. I listened in the car, in the yard, in the kitchen, in the bathroom, just about everywhere, it was that enthrallilng.
The author gave just enough foreshadowing to keep you on the edge of your seat but not enough to give away anything.
Favorite or most emotional? I had to stop what I was doing when **spoiler alert** Amy came home and started making up this crazy story about being held hostage, because I was so mad at her I was yelling as if Nick could hear me, "She's lying,she's evil! Don't believe her!"
I just started hating Amy with a passion! I started yelling at her while the narrator was reading her part.
Highly recommended for anyone who really wants to get involved in a story.
I Think I Love You was fun to listen to, a chance to go back to my teen past and experience David Cassidy all over again. I really enjoyed the 2nd half more, when Petra was grown and had the opportunity to indulge her teen-age fantasy by meeting the idol. The Welsh accent was hard to understand initially, but overall the listen was very satisfying. It was chick-lit type of stuff, so no 5 stars, only 4. The interview at the end was a great addition. I'd recommend this as a "beach read" or just light escapist audio.
