The reader captured Elvis Cole as clever, funny and low key, not as the typical tough guy.
Although the ending was predictable in some ways, there were still surprises. I did have a hard time turning it off.
Loved him. He portrayed Elvis Cole the way I imagined him to be from reading many of the books.
I could have.
As wonderful as the rescue of the elephants was, I loved the relationship of all the people with the land and all of the animals.
I can't imagine anyone reading/listening to this book and not wanting to visit the reserve.
It is one of the best. I read this book when it came out and always remembered it but not the name. I stumbled on it when Audible had a 2 for 1 deal going and was hooked all over again.
Jeff. As he keeps reliving his life, he tries so hard to get it right despite all the loss.
If you could live your life again what would you change?
It's at the top of the list of the ones I have listened to recently.
Of course it was Michael as it is his story about loving Southie in spite of the forced busing, violence, and loss of siblings.
Southie, the Greatest Neighborhood.
I grew up in the Boston suburbs and lived in Boston in the same time period and never understood until now what it was like in South Boston. I was one of those outsiders who, the one time I ventured in to see the St Patrick's Day Parade, was hit by a beer bottle.
I have read this book many times over the years and was very happy to see it was finally on Audible. It is a lovely book about a family of 3 daughters starting in the early 1900's.
I like each family member having their own section of the book to tell their own story.
I didn't think she got Leonie's righteous character right and all the young men sounded like old men so perhaps not.
Leonie. She is so earnest, full of opinions and idealism and never getting loved enough for it.
It took me a bit to get I to it but I soon was unable to stop listening. I have always thought The Shining was the scariest book ever. This wasn't as scary but it was good to know what happened to Danny.
When the True Knot take the baseball boy. Memorable and awful.
I couldn't listen at night because it would have kept me up.
It took me a it to get into the book but it got faster fairly quickly so, yes, I'd listen again to see what I might have missed early on.
Danny, the hero. He seemed authentic as a insecure but typical know it all teen boy.
No, but I can't wait to listen to the next in the series.
If you're an Orson Scott Card fan, you will like this book.
It might be better read instead of listened to. It was hard for me to remember what time I was in.
There were too many characters and too much jumping all over the place in time. Although I'm an old movie fan, I thought the Richard Burton scenes were dull.
The reader was good with the Italian.
There were touching moments and good writing and I was glad I waited to see how it ended.
Yes. A great story about an alcoholic in complete denial about the impact alcohol has on her life.
Hildy. She seemed like an authentic old time New Englander and a very authentic secret drinker.
My favorite scene is Hildy's memory of loving Frankie as a teenager and sneaking onto harbor boats during their summer romance.
Yes. It was very exciting with an ending not at all what you are imagining when you start listening. It is also very well read.
When he finds the shed.
He was my favorite although very frustrating.
I was on the edge of my seat and couldn't listen at bedtime or I would never sleep.
There's a reason it's been so long on the best seller list. Great book!
