I didn't read the print. I listened to the audiobook twice.
Many realistic characters, Touchingly well described.
Emotional story of life as we age. Touching for an aging child of elderly parents from a small town.
Great book if you enjoy an ensemble, character driven story. Wonderfully read.
Narrator brings you into cold, dark settings of castle chambers, into open fields and dark forests and into loud, festive banquet halls.. But at times it became monotonous. Great read for people interested in Henry VII during Anne Bolen's court.
Unbelievable story of masochistic risk high altitude climbers and climbing novices endure to summit Mt. Everest. I appreciate the authors honesty and personal reflection in his account of the perilous events he lived through while several of his climbing contemporaries died on the mountain or as a result of this particular climbing expedition.
I will read it again..
Reminds me of Ernest Shackleton's Endurance. Incredible true story of deep sea divers, their devotion to a death defying profession and their commitment to solving an international mystery involving secret uboat missions. Excellent narration and nice bonus at end of audio with interview of Chatterton and Kohler.
Narrator is very good and story line very good, but listening to this reminds me why I am not into fictional novels. Editors could have proofed manuscript better. Young Theo speaks almost to eloquently and small details bothered me, such as, after a terrorist bombing in a high profile New York City museum and his mother is missing, Theo turns on TV and all he remembers is the commercials?
Very well performed audio, great narrator. Beautiful true story about one man's life journey to root his self identity with his birth mother and birth place. Not a happy ending but life and love affirming. One more reason to distrust the Catholic Church.
I teach an undergraduate course, BA223, Principles of Leadership, and introduced this book, Paul Farmer and the Partner's in Health team / task force to my students. This type of civic engagement, grass roots, community based leadership is humanity driven and surpasses all egocentric government systems and politically strangulated agencies, in their activism and critical thinking. Humanity would implode if NGOs like Partner's in Health did not exist.
Absolutely well done, I'm still thinking about it, for all dog lovers. Laugh, cry, get angry, sentimental, life affirming. Enzo and Matt define best friends and their life together is a journey of peaks and valleys. The end is superb. I was having a crappy week at work and listening to this story put me in a better place..
Very well written and narrated. A reason to believe is a perfect title and couldn't wait for daily commute to hear more. Story line reminded me of actual event that occurred about the murder of a little beauty pageant queen. And it would be great it Kieran and Matt returned to solve more murders or cold cases.
If you've experienced a similar, traumatic death by gun violence, then this memoir might be cathartic but the writing was not as compelling as I hoped. I enjoy getting into a characters psyche, but this book did not do this for me..
Narration is very good and Roach describes, using detailed research and graphic but appropriate language, a clinical context that is fasinating to anyone in the medical field or with interest in the digestive system.
