I'm a sucker for any book that rates as one of the best books of the year. So, I gave this one a shot. It's very interesting and so well written. I learned a lot.
From the heart.
I turned to this audio production as it was on my IPod and I had neglected to download the second part of my book. I was bummed not to have a book but after one story, I was hooked. One moment? They were all thought provoking and beautiful.
I liked his great speaking voice.
It made me cry actually. Very moving indeed.
Thank you for this special Christmas present Audible!!
Deborah Messing does a superb job of narrating this book. It's very well read.
I loved how this author really connected me with Anthony. I feel I understand this terrible disease a bit more now.
She read them all wonderfully.
I loved the ending. It was incredibly powerful
This is a very moving story and a great listen, especially if you work with kids in any way or have a chlld with special needs.
This is a beautiful little book about love and life. A little gem.
I loved her voice as the main character.
I would recommend this audio book as the reader is great and the story line really keeps your attention. It's a very interesting discussion that centers around who a person can trust.
I enjoyed the pace of the story plus the reader. She did a great job.
I would take Dr. Nash to dinner. This is a fascinating premise and based on a true condition I think. How would one cope I wonder?
A fascinating read.
Since I have read many of Conroy's books, this gave me insight into his writings.
He brings his own voice.....always a plus from any author.
No, I could easily put it down but wanted to go back to it.
If you have read and enjoyed Conroy's book, this book will interest you. It gives background to his characters, his life and the people who have influenced him. He also mentions many books that have influenced his writings. A great book club selection!
A great sequel to Shanghai Girls. Took a while to really get into this one and had problems with the narrator at first. But the second half of the novel really took off and the narrator's voice seemed more appropriate. Ended up exercising more than I intended just to get back to it! I also learned a lot about the reform movement in China. Well done all around.
I only really appreciated this book after I fnished listening to it. For the first half of the book, I kept thinking.....is there a book in here? The second part gets more interesting until finally at the end you relalize the importance of the author's work and the purspose in writing the book.
This is a good family saga with a great mystery too. Well read I thought.
I walk when I listen to books and this one just didn't make it for me. The listening is very intense. If my mind wandered at all, I missed someone being murdered or some emperor taking over a country. Have a history buff friend who read the book and she loved it but said yes, she was going to her dictionary on a regular basis with this one. Not a good audible one for me.
This was much more fun listening to than reading it in college. Who can remember it all back then anyway? And boy, I appreciate the author's writing so much more now!
