My husband and I love to listen to this together and usually listen as we are travelling in the van. Better and more fun than reading solo in a book.
The descriptions of New York in the late 1800's and the premise of the story that we could go back in time and experience the earlier time. There is also the contrasts of the different types of lives the people lived then. We can actually feel that we are there with the main character. And, of course we enjoyed the end!
Somehow it seems easy to tell the different characters he portrays. He has a wonderful rich voice, although it can lull me to sleep if I am tired!
Where the past comes alive.
I love the ending, too. We gave our first copy of the book to someone to read and never saw it again, but our first introduction was on the radio in Kalamazoo so we fondly remember it being read to us chapter by chapter.
