Yes. But not the book version. It is too wordy, w/ no inflections of emotion.
Even-toned, but w/ great voice inflection.
I just listened to a different book on CD and the narrator blasted half the time and spoke in a whimper the rest of it.
This is an easy listen.
The part that affected me was one line,
Have not seen the movie.
I re-listened to this about two months ago, having listened to it about 5 years ago.
You will not forget this one.
It gives me chills.
Only snakes give me chills.
Top ten authors of all the books I've listened to-It is so real, well it is real, not fiction.
Initially, I found it hard to believe that anyone would continue to stay in a job that was "undercover" to get iformation to write a book.The job is basically maintenance of Alzheimers' patients And it is, literally, a sh-tty job.
But there is a personal aspect that the author has to deal with. She does it w/ honesty and guilt.
We all have our "I -wish- I- would- haves." She does too.
I liked this book better than "Still Alice." It is an older book.
The disease is not. It goes on and on.
It reminds me of "Still Alice."
But this is told from a different point of view.
All were good.
Yes. The observation about the clothing.
The author could sort of tell which patients had family members that cared about them by the condition of their clothing.
Buttons on shirts, or no buttons, for example.
I really liked this book.
The fact that this could happen anywhere, to anyone, regardless of race or income-level.
This book portrays real-life bullying and the consequences, both as the victim is affected,
and the tormentors.
This book hit me hard enough to ask my teenage daughter to say One Nice Thing Everyday to a person to whom you would not usually talk to.
Great performance, easy to understand characters.
Should be a mandatory read for all students entering high-school.
The audio is hilarious, as she narrates it.
This book is too good to select one part.
But, if I had too, it would be massage story.
I have listened to all of her books.
This one shines above all.
I about wet my pants laughing.
No other book has made me laugh out loud.
I have grinned, but not laughed.
OOps- wrong-Burroughs has.
Not for the pristine.
Very good. I had almost sworn off S. King.
There are a lot of characters in this book, but don't let this stop you, as many do not survive.
As always, King has a way with words that bring scenes to life.
A very good value for just one credit!
