The narrator for this book is awesome. The story is very imaginative and the characters come to life when given such good narration.
I found this book inspiring (I'm 53) and was fascinated with getting to know Jane Fonda. She is very open and personal, and it is especially imitate hearing her story from her own voice. She gives a lot of detailed science and has done her homework well. It is a good book for anyone at "crossroads" in life. I am looking the 3rd act right in the eye, and with retirement coming soon, I found a lot of motivation to jump into my new life in a meaningful way. She gave a spiritual perspective close to mine, and I was very surprised to hear it from her. I use to "jump with Jane" in the 80's, and now I am listening to her to learn life philosophies. Fascinating.
This book speaks to the principles that I desire to live by. I did learn some, but mostly I was inspired. I'm far from acheiving my goals, but making an effort every day helps. I love Kingsolver's voice and enjoyed the "sidebar" comments from her daughter. It's sort of a documentary and a story. Well worth listening to. The accompanying web site has good recipes and info.
Good information, well written, good narration. I wish the current administration would read this book as homework.
