I never really understood the story behind the movie. It never appealed to me until I came across this tremendous sale. Now it is one of my top listens. Christopher Simpson made the book come to life. I could listen to him read any book. His accent was exactly what I thought it should sound like. The story is an amazing story of a life in India as a young orphan grows up.
bewitching, engrosssing, romantic
Their first kiss.
No, but pray, she does the entire series!
How can we wait for July for the second in the trilogy?
When a friend recommended this book and told me a bit about it I was really unsure if I would like it. She assured me if I enjoyed the Twilight series I would enjoy this series. I have both read and listened to the series now. The story draws you in and you can't stop listening. I did think the voice of Carolyn McCormick a bit old for the lead character, but she has a strong sure voice and handles all the various character voices wonderfully. Definitely a great book and series to garden to this summer.
I am so glad I chose to listen instead of read this book. The narration put me right into the story. I could run for miles listening to David LeDoux and John Randolph Jones. The title does nothing to inspire you to read the book, but the story is a cross generational story extremely well written and told. Everyone should listen to Jacob as he describes his life and how it feels to grow old. Sara Gruen nailed it.
