Absolutely! It was a beautiful book and so well performed. I wanted to stop the car and write things down. The author had such a sense of humor, I laughed out loud at times.
Hard to compare, but I haven't liked anything this much in a long while. Other books I enjoyed to this extent were "The Color Of Water," "The Help" "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society"
The main character Louisa.
There were many. Her first trip to the Opera, their vacation, the maze...to say more would give too much away.
I really do recommend this audio book. It was beautifully written and performed. It also opened up my eyes to the many realities what is involved in life of life as quadriplegic. If you have a heart, it's a great book. If you don't, you'll probably grow one. It will also reach out to your sense of humor:)
Most Interesting - The later stories of the boy's mother as she was forced to find and do for herself
Least Interesting - The main character just seemed to whine about his life way too much
Someone with less of a monotone voice
I was very disappointed with this book. So many people loved it, but it felt like just another story of assimilation into a new culture. I feel like I have read it over and over.....just with different cultures and religions as the focal point.
