both were very good
In todays world the woman would be viewed as a victim of [domestic] violence
I was deeply moved by the book
it gave a very good overview of the time period in Britain
I simply can't say, being a biblio-vore my preferred method of any book is that of being read to.
As the story developed I had more than one favourite character as the novel offered the reader a plethora of values with which the reader could align or identify him or herself with.
I have listened to several of Jonathan Keeble's narrations as he is one of my favourite readers but he simply excelled in his faultless narration of this wonderful book
indeed I did just that very thing as I couldn't stop listening..... and I was sad when the book ended a sure way of judging a personal winner
For anyone who loves a well developed story-line coupled with faultlessly researched details then Nigel Farndale is the writer for you. Farndale also manages to present the reader / listeners with their personal inner dialogues concerning value judgements. I actually sent an email via this writers web page in praise of his writing.
I loved this book because it was about lives created from one the most basic human conditions, that of loneliness.
The book for me was about human frailty and I particularly loved the very large, older male character, Arthur; his gentlemanly intellect, his insightfullness and kindness toward's others despite his own debilitating loneliness. I loved the way the book ended on a note of hopeful expection for all.
The narration of this book was wonderful, but the voice given to the older man was absolutely outstanding.
The most memorable character Arthur, I was left thinking about him long after I'd finished the book.
Heft was a book with extraordinary insight into loneliness and survival. I wish audible had more books by the same author
I consider Jennifer Connelly narration of this book to be the highest honour one could give to the genius of writer Paul Bowles
Both of the main characters of the book were well so well portrayed each were equally believable
I would read anything Jennifer Connelly narrates she is one of the finest female narraters I have listened to
I would rather go to on a trip to the desert [than out to dinner] with either of the main characters
Jennifer Connellys narration of this book was like pouring honey over the sophisticated prose of Paul Bowles to make the passages sound as smooth as silk
I would recommend this book because it is about an ordinary man who did something extraordinary.
I think many readers can relate to Harold's journey and if not - are intrigued by it.
I really liked the main character
I'd perhaps like to go on a walking trip with the main character as opposed to having dinner.
Just that it was a tale about an ordinary person who did an extraordinary thing and that we are all of us capable of something extraordinary....
