The book itself is good and I have read the hard copy version. I enjoy listening to audiobooks at work and in the car and thought this would be a good book to listen to while I was busy. However, the narration was so poor, I turned it off after the first 45 minutes. I couldn't listen to any more.
Yes. The author wasn't the issue, it was the narrator.
Tone, voice, accents. All aspects of her narration were poor.
Huge disappointment in the narration.
I've read both and enjoyed them both immensely. However, Claire Dane's narration was great. She was apathetic, angry, and tragic with barely a change in her voice. It was well done.
I am currently living away from my husband due to our jobs and listening to Claire Danes talk about missing her husband and human touch really resonated with me. It was as if she felt everything I was feeling (except hopefully slightly more dramatic!)
Very interesting content overall and a very terrifying thought with religious zealots from my parts of the world. Very sensationalized, but also relevant. Very highly recommend.
The story took me back to the events of 9/11 and the horrific imaging. To listen to the events from a child's perspective was gripping.
It started a little slow, but definitely picked up.
The story and narration kept me listening, even after I got home. I couldn't stop listening!
