I was torn between really liking this and not really liking this recording. I loved that the author narrated it himself, that was wonderful. I just couldn't decide if the author had something significant to say about the Measure of a Man or whether he was simply writing a book to talk about himself or to be heard on certain topics. I would not recommend this book to anyone however I can't say it's a bad book either.
If you know all of his work you probably will enjoy the chapters he talks specifically about how the movie came to be and how he got the part in it.
I felt this interview could not have gone better. I learned more about Malcolm Gladwell and felt I knew him better as a writer after I listened to their exchange. I want to read the Tipping Point again and will be certain to pick up or listen to Blink. Great interview on both sides, such a great conversation.
Very well written and a great audiobook. I never considered the lobster before and this really made me think. Not just about the lobster but about other food processing we have here in the US. I settled on the fine line between eating lobster and becoming a vegan altogether. Interesting to say the least. I'd listen to it again.
I truly enjoyed listening to this audiobook. The author reading it added even more authenticity to the characters and the story. What a powerful telling! Americans should take time to learn more about the Afghan culture and what has happened in their country since 9/11. This book, although fiction, rang true in my ears. I'd recommend it to those with conscious and a compassion for others.
