It was a very good story line that drew you in from the very beginning. I got so caught up in the lives of the characters and the events that I could not put my iPod away. It was an emotional roller coaster and I cried right along with them. You dont know the ending until the END. I like that about a story. Very, very good.
They were all special in their own way but the construction worker (carpenter) was my favorite. Then the little boy!
The carpenter, just to be in his company.
I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a good book with an uplifring message. You came away just feeling good.
The performance of the person reading. It would not have held near the interest in book form. And such an interesting use of descriptors. Always in the extreme and many times at opposite ends of the spectrum. I have never read anything like this. Very unusual ! The story is futuristic and about a time when the earth is more barren. But hope is found. The story is about how it is found and one young girl in particular.This is not the kind of thing I usually read but I loved this story. It had heart and soul and caring and hope for a better world.
Juliette because she was so resillient.
She read with such feeling and expression, reguardless of which character she was portraying. I seldom comment on performance unless the accent is so strong I have difficulty understanding. But to have just read this book I dont think I would have enjoyed it half as much. She made it come alive. It was real. Ahe was AMAZING!
Yes, but obviously could not.
As different as it is from what I usually read (mysteries) I would recommend taking a chance on this. The very interesting use of words in the writing and the extremely well performed reading will be worth your time.
I loved this story. A fun story with more serious undertones about life and a hidden secret about a familly's past. It is all there in one book. It is so enjoyable to listen to. The reader does a great job.
Awesome! It was an interesting way of introducing the story line over generations. The story was never finished until the last page. How could you not feel the joy and the pain of the mother as a child and her daughters struggle to understand her. It just gets better and better. I loved this book. I will listen again and again.
