I can't compare since I did not read, only listened. However, the reader did a great job; I really did not want this to end. What a great story, beautifully written and an excellent reader. I intend to read more of Ford's work.
Yes, and I already have.
When the woman was going to leave America and go home, the discussion of family values here in America and what she wants to return to, having family.
I did like it but she needs to re-record and learn the correct pronunciations of Orono and Bangor. Here in Maine we put the emphasis on first syllable of both city names. The way she pronounced Orono was particularly wrong. Why don't narrators do some research about place names??? This really bothered me.
As I said before, the discussion about family values in America vs. those of some other countries. Also, how the Burgess family became more of a family then ever before in many years.
I loved listening to this book. The reader does a great job and the story is one that I will remember forever. This book brought me to another time and place.
