Top ten of all the books I have read in the last 5 years.
When he could finally be reunited with his family.
The rescue in Japan.
A thrill a minute. The world could use more men like him.
He was so clever while at sea trying to stay alive. I would not know how to survive there. He was a brave and wonderful man. Could
Maybe number One. I have since bought the print version just to keep with the other 10 or so books I would take to a deserted island if I could. I will listen over again many times.
To Kill a Mockingbird and many others. It educated me, entertained, shocked, saddened, and gave me so many other feelings. I put aside important chores to listen. I refer to the book and its Bibliography. I listen to parts again to remember just how things were in those times. So glad I bought it.
No. His reading was good. I could listen to more he has performed
Yes. I wanted so much to know what happened next. Great writing.
You can tell Erik Larson does his homework when he writes. I have another book of his and it was just as well researched. I would love to have more of his work.
Better in audio because I might not have given this book a chance if it were in print. I like listening to books. Many times I put a book aside before I give it a chance, not so with a book someone else reads. Since in this book the author reads you can trust he shares your passion for the book.
I wanted him to find his sister so badly. It was sad and funny in places. So well written.
The whole scene where he finds the boy and they are rescued in the snow.
I would like the guy. He is pathetic and brave, silly and sincere. I could take him out to dinner and we could probably have a good talk.
Cheering for her so many times.
The way the characters were made so human and so complex
Finding the key and finding the garden.
I wished I could listen to all in one sitting. Even though the book is long, I could still have listened longer.
