This book is one of the best romances I have ever read. The reader reads so well that you actually believe her to be Jane Eyre. She conveys all the joys and losses right to your very heart.
My favorite character is Jane herself. She is such a pure creature it is hard not to love her.
My favorite scene was when Jane and Mr. Rochester first professed their love for each other. You are waiting on the edge of your seat for it to happen!
Under these stoic hearts lies a storm of love.
The reader is great. I tried searching for her (Susan Erickson) on other books, but she seems to have an American accent on the other books--and I found this disappointing.
The Professor giving this lecture is a very good public speaker. I like the way he makes science into a story. He makes the laboratory experiments come alive.
The lecture is interesting in that it sheds light on all the different theories of life's origins and really allows you to stand back from your human perspective paradigm and see that we were once and still are chemistry!
I was moved when Hemingway had multiple people, that were unrelated to the main characters in the story, expose their nightly bedtime thoughts, worries, and general perceptions. It's good to be pulled up from a story you are so embedded in and reminded that life is going on around your primary characters.
Will Patton does an excellent job with accents and inflections in just the right places. Hemingway's sentences can get pretty long and descriptive, but Patton never misses a beat.
When Harry Morgan is trying his hardest to get his last, dying words out. And when he finally does, the crew around him thinks it jibberish, but you as the reader, with an inside view, know the truth.
