A Must Listen! Amazingly, the author wrote it without one cliché, and each adverb and adjective needs to be respectfully absorbed and assimilated. And JEREMY NORTHEM, best narrator yet! Beautiful English voice with perfect timing and inflection.
I could listen to this book again and again...
The narrative performance was delivered charmingly, however the book was a little too formula. Likewise, the climax took ions to reach.
His lilting Irish voice brought realism to the set.
Perhaps if Michael Fastbender played Sean.
This book was fascinating, and a comfort to anyone who's an introvert. There are so many moments when I needed to either go home “early”, or just be alone to think, and the book clarified these feelings and removed all guilt for those “anti-social” behaviors. I loved it and feel a better person for it!
Perhaps in this instance, an extrovert reader would have made it even more enthralling ;-), but Mazur had a lovely voice.
Made it more than two-thirds way through and the book still didn’t snatch my attention. I’m a canine lover, but I found all the doggy nuggets of wisdom slightly corny. I know I’m a minority, because I ordered The Art of Racing the Rain based on its reviews, and even though it may offer a touching finale, I’d rather use my precious audiobook time on more worthy selections.
This was not a maudlin story about a dying man; rather it was an admirable, uplifting expose of Randy Pausch’s last few months on earth. Almost exclusively he dedicated his amusing commentary to recognizing what’s important in our lives… family, honor, and having a purpose for being. He definitely left an impact on me and I'll never forget him.
