This is a memoir. Was not sure I would make it through the book when I first started listening, as it sounded to me that the author was somewhat affected & felt a huge sense of entitlement because of her background. The narrator did not help in dispelling this image I had in my head. However, while I did not enjoy the job the narrator did, I did enjoy the story & found myself wishing it wouldn't end so soon.
I can certainly understand why television series will suit this book!
Excellent book...very suspenseful & thought-provoking. Loved it up until the last few chapters, so without giving away the ending it just went beyond what was believable (up until that point), and lost me. Would definitely recommend it!!
Loved this family saga...very rich with wonderful character development & gripping storyline. The narration was particularly good as was the historical significance with the development of Texas.
Well worth the time to listen!!!
Incredible book taking place in North Korea. It is quite unfathomable that a country like this still exists in this day & age.
The lead character is really well-developed & although his actions were truly incomprehensible at times, it forces the reader to go beyond thinking what 'normal' is.
Definitely recommended & no question Pulitzer-worthy!
Enjoyed this book very much. Makes you step back & think about what we are doing to our environment & realizing once bad things start to happen, there is no 'going back' and having a re-do.
Amazing story of a Greek immigrant family to the US. Well-written, heartbreaking at times. Beautifully narrated.
Good continuation of the first book, but not nearly as funny. Still...very enjoyable and recommended as a sequel after listening to the first book.
Incredibly good story...only complaint is that the reader is sometimes difficult to understand. Otherwise very highly recommended. This would be a book you could give to anyone on your gift-list!!
Just when you think Ken Follett cannot get any better, he does!! This is the second in a trilogy & I cannot wait for the sequel!
Very entertaining & funny. Excellent performance by the reader! My 15 year old son & I listened to this on a long car ride...it kept us entertained for hours! Definitely recommended!!!
