Family, Frontier, Florida
The passage of time, beginning in frontier Florida, takes you through three generations of a pioneering family is the wilds of Florida. It's a wonderful tale and especially poignant if you are from Florida as I am. I never had an image of what life would have been like in Florida as one of the first settlers to the area. This was a great novel!
Very lovely narration, easy to understand each of the characters different speaking styles.
Read it, you won't regret it!
Yes, it is the first book in a very, very long time that moved me to tears. And I can't even remember the last time I cared so much for a character!
No other book compares, it's in a genre of its' own.
Pi Patel of course
Read it, you won't regret it!
Neil Gaimen narrates this book and is amazing. I love all the different characters and voices he is able to perform. This is what good book "listening" is all about!
The story is so innovative and charming as well.
That would be actually two characters, the Mr.'s Croup and Vandemar. Evil but so entertaining.
There's more than one reality, you just have to look hard enough to see it.
Great book, I recommend it!
I think Elizabeth McGovern's voice adds that certain touch that really makes me feel like I am in the setting. She is a delight to listen to and I will seek out any further books she narrates.
I probably would say Cora, since it is her story we are most concerned with.
No, but I am going to look for more.
I don't want to give anything away but when Cora gets her turn to be loved is my favorite part.
Listen to this one folks, it's a gem!
Yes I would, it is just how a well written book should be.
Very consistent narration, emphasis in all the right places!
Great story, good narration, what more could you want?
No way, I found this book to be boring beyond belief. The first book was pretty good and I liked a lot of things about it. This book was just not well put together, the story was so fragmented and just poorly written. I hate to say this but it's the truth. I wonder if the author didn't just rush it to get something out, it could have been good, but it became very trite and predictable and boring. Extremely boring!
The narrator is just plain god awful! I have never been quite as annoyed by a narrator in any other audio book, and I've listened to a lot of audio books.
Some of the characters are fine but when she does the voice for Diana, the main character it's awful. It's hard to describe, it's just plain annoying.
I needless to say will not be purchasing any further novels by this author.
A different narrator possibly, but I think it comes down to a poorly written book.
No, but I listened because I paid for it, so I felt I should at least give it a full listen, but I haven't wanted to turn off an audio book as often as this one.
Don't waste your money.
I like the way the you see the entire novel from the viewpoint of the brother who is blind. But in his words you see everything happening through his observations.
At times I felt like it was just passing the reader through generation to generation, in a trite way, hippies, etc. I could have done without that.
I don't believe I've ever heard him before this, but he is very good in this.
The end of course was the most moving to me.
