Emerson is certainly one of the great thinkers of the American experience, however the narration of this text makes it quite challenging to get at the heart of Emerson's point. The narrator seems to lack the feeling and flow that would have really brought Emerson's words alive from the page to the listener's ear.
A unique perspective from a troubling youth that fosters a resilient adult. Alan Cumming presents an intriguing character study about his overcoming of a challenging early existence to truly understand his own identity.
Touching, Powerful, Humorous
The emotions it evokes in the reader as you go along on this journey.
Probably not. The book itself is pretty good, the vocal range of the narrator brings this book to life though. From someone who works in ministry and understands some of the baggage brought by missionary families into these settings, I can appreciate and enjoy this book - but not enough for a second read!
The reality. The book is absolutely humorous in parts, troubling in others, yet in the end you admire the strength of the mother and the daughters as they have endured so much.
Wonderful characters! Great work! The vocals make this book so much better!
Yes! Emma Galvin's narration brings the characters alive in such a way that you feel their strength and insecurity. This is a fantastic series with characters that you want to believe in.
Triss and Four have a complicated relationship that never feels too romantic (thankfully), but exemplifies that all relationships must endure great challenges to succeed.
The difference between their voices and the words on the page is like the difference between watching a full screen HD 1080p, surround size version of a show v. a black and white tube tv on mute. Kudos for "being" these characters!
Grisham has once again given us the characters and setting that we love so much. Sycamore Road brings us back to the life of Jack Brigance and the people of Ford County. The story is familiar, yet challenging. It keeps the reader moving, but also provides you with comfort. A great read!
Harry Rex Vonner is the most hated lawyer in Ford County, yet the readers of both a Time to Kill and now Sycamore Row are given an insight into the reality that even the most smarmy of all lawyers has heart and principles!
More trouble in Ford County...can Jake continue to fight?
The plot kept me going for a while, but the narrator and the characters are what carried me to the end. After about half or two-thirds of the way through the book the end became apparent, but your love for the characters and J.D. Jackson's narration bring you through to the end.
J.D. Jackson is now one of my favs! Fantastic voice and wonderful job vocally preparing the reader for Grisham's writing.
