What a great book! I was amazed at just how great this book was. What a great story teller! So interesting and funny in so many ways. Fun to hear about the many trials and tribulations that happen in trying to get going with the deli business. Neat to hear about the real-life family struggles that we all deal with.
Lots of interesting people/customers to hear about. You feel like you're right there in the deli. I loved the hearing about George Plimpton too. He was a neat man and the book shows that. Narrating was as good as you get!
Learned something new.
Keep a list of the character name summaries by your side. Russian names are definitely more difficult to keep track. It becomes easier as you go.
Very good book for sure. So hard to read at times because of just how terrible it was for the Jews during WW2. Super creative in the separate stories all coming together in the end.
Very easy, motivational listen. Also, Donny has a great voice for narrating.
Cool to see just regular people come up with an idea and then actually do something with it.
Ron McLarty has become one of my favorite authors. His writing covers pretty much of every emotion that we feel as people. I always feel like I'm right there in the story on the sidelines watching everything happen as he reads it. He is also as good as you get when it comes to narrating.
Just solid all the way around.
What a great book. Great narration. The story is intense, sad, happy and just about every other emotion the we have as humans.
I was actually sad when it was over. I immediately downloaded another of Ron McLarty's books right after finishing this one. I never write reviews, but I was so touched by this book that I just had to let others know.
You won't be disappointed.
Never heard of Larry Winget before, but it was on the 5.95 special and I thought I'd give him a try. It's just not cute after awhile to hear the "good ole, psycho country boy" persona telling you all the same crap that you've heard for years. He just tries too hard to be "tough".
I tried to think of a way to convey just how bad I think this book was. It's hard to do,I would listen and think there was no way that Tom could possibly believe most of what he writes. I think that his belief is that repeating demands over and over in a brash, cocky, "in your face" tone is somehow good business motivating and direction. I made it through about half and then got so pissed at the repetitive nonsense that I had to just stop.
I don't even like poetry but Collins poetry is different than the rest. I am so glad that he has recieved all of the recognition that he has.
Humour, sensitivity, sadness and lots more.
