Johnathan Franzen managers to dig deep into the souls of the characters who are, on the surface, just ordinary folk. Like us all there are deep angers, fears and love which he slowly teases out and examines.
It made me laugh and cry. It brings the life of those who seek a better life closer, Beautifully read.
John Lee is amazing! He does all the accents without fail. I don't normally read or listen to this sort of book but Ken Follet just has such a gift for story telling. I now feel as if I have so much insight into WW1 and the people who lived in that time. He made it come alive.I will read everything else he's written now, especially read by John Lee.
I loved the story about the Russian brothers
I didn't want it to end.
Read it if you are interested in History.
Sarah was my favourite character, perhaps as she was the main one.
She had the accent down pat. She was engaging and interesting to listen to.
yes. but I didn't like the ending
Loved listening to this book, especially as it was about the early days of the Hawkesbury river and beyond. The ending was disjointed from the rest of the book though.
