The story isn't quite my type of book, but I ended up finding it more engaging than I expected. But, I love Kate Winslet and would be happy to listen to anything she wants to read for as long as she will continue reading! She is an amazing actress so it's no surprise that she is also an excellent narrator.
I might not have chosen this myself but it was a gift, and it turned out to be a beautiful gift indeed. What a touching glimpse into people's lives.
No wonder this book and this author have been so respected and famous. It is a very worthy book. It is engaging, easy to listen to, easy to follow so it's not a difficult book, but it has a lot to say. I think it's a credit very well spent!
What a wonderful story, and how inspiring to see what the efforts of one person can do in our world. His excellent narration was the icing on the cake. Get this book. I think you will be happy that you did.
There are a lot of useful concepts and ideas, but why say it in 5 minutes when you can take 50? Unfortunately I couldn't hang in there and keep my attention on it, and finally gave up about half way through. Maybe an abridged version would work better?
I think the ideas are very useful for any relationship. I'm glad I listened to the book for this, but the writing and the delivery made me feel like I'm in kindergarten class which was most irritating. But, it was still well worth hanging in there for the valuable concepts and ideas.
If you're a parent of an addict, maybe it will be some comfort to know others feel the same pain and frustration. Even if you aren't, I think you'll appreciate this look into the life of a parent's journey with his addicted son.
I found the book engaging and enjoyable. Maybe it isn't life altering literature and the story lines can be a bit predictable at times, but it leaves you with a smile.
I found this a very compelling and powerful book, and the narration is excellent. Listening to it was definitely time well spent.
This is a very interesting book, and I think it gives a good understanding of some of the forces that make women different from men. The narrator was awful though, and I agree that you feel like you're being read to by a kindergarten teacher. If you can overlook that, the book is worth your time.
