    Story
    (27)

    Professor William Waterman Sherman just wants to be alone. So he decides to take a year off and spend it crossing the Pacific Ocean in a hot-air balloon the likes of which no one has ever seen. But when he is found after just three weeks floating in the Atlantic among the wreckage of twenty hot-air balloons, naturally, the world is eager to know what happened. How did he end up with so many balloons . . . and in the wrong ocean?

    Where does The Twenty-One Balloons rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is in my top 10. I was surprised on how well the story was structured. There is plenty of funny parts and at the same time there is a deep meaning in every single part. It is like a working machine with all parts functioning well and with a special purpose.


    What other book might you compare The Twenty-One Balloons to and why?

    Any Jules Verne Book because of its adventure style. Besides the other book that I read about balloons was written by Verne (Travel around the world in 80 days)


    Have you listened to any of Hal Hollings’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Good for kids, plenty of fantasy and at the same time brilliant description of how machines work within the book.

    Drawing on the period when, as Karol Wojtyla, he became a bishop in 1958 through his appointment as the first Polish Pope in 1978, Pope John Paul II fills Rise, Let Us Be On Our Way with both recollections of his own life and his thoughts on issues facing the world now.

    Emilie Moynihan says: "What is a Bishop?"
    "John Paul II at his best"
