I was drawn to this book. Following the main character's life, you almost get two stories. It isn't very exciting. I finished it, but I wasn't very emotionally tied to the book at all. Not the worst book I have listened to but not the best.
One of the best audiobooks I have listened to. The lady that reads it really does a great job setting the stage of the story. I enjoyed it. I thought at first I was not going to get in to this vampire series. Before long, I wanted to get on to the next in the series. I found myself laughing out loud too.
I really liked it when Bill was talking to Sookie's grandma's club.
Give it a chance, you just might love it.
I loved the perspective of the main character as an old man. The man performing him was magnificent. He will cross my mind a lot the rest of my life. He made me laugh and cry. It was great to hear how old age does affect our minds and our bodies.
When the modern day circus man lied for the old man and he got to stay on with the circus was my most memorable moment for Jacob.
I enjoyed listening to this. The men reading the parts were fantastic. The old man was grrrrrreat! He could not have been cast better. I didn't like the fact that the author focused on some of the circus experiences with certain circus women with such great detail. She could have lightened up on that just a bit. However, this is a really good listen!
Glen did a great job telling the story. However, it was ok, but it was not that great. Some have compared this to The Shack. NO IT IS NOT. It is what it is. You might enjoy it more than me. I got very tired of a defiant sassy boy. I am glad I finished it but I was about to turn it off. I do not think I would recomment it to my friends.
I LOVED IT! I would be laughing one minute and crying the next. Definitely a wonderful wonderful story. The young lady who narrarates this could not be better. She brings each character to life. I love this story. I will listen to this one several times. It is precious. A++++
