I am reviewing this book some months after reading it and I find myself revisiting the characters in my mind time and time again. What a wonderful book! I put this book in the Top 5 of all books I have read (listened to) and loved in my lifetime (46 years - 40 of those as an avid reader and most recently as an avid audiobook listener). The narrator, Shohreh Aghdashloo (who you may remember was nominated for an Oscar for her performance as the displaced Iranian Colonel's wife in House of Sand and Fog)had the perfect accent and made the prose and the dialog flow easily and come alive more than any words on the page could. I would listen to anything she read. I have recommended this to friends and family and they have all loved it as well. Highly recommended!
The Power of One is a wonderful audiobook. I am not much of a fan of boxing but this story is about so much more than that. The characters stay with you long after you have finished and the Narrator's voice repeating those 'special' names PeeKay is known by linger in your ears as well. I can not recommend this book enough. The message it imparts is strong and gives the listener a lot to think about. Highly recommended!
