I thought I was getting this for my 10 year old and myself to enjoy together BUT this is not what I deem appropriate for 10 year old ears! Glad I listened to it first. Funny, clever and I could listen to Stephen Fry all day.
I enjoyed this very much but I feel the author's strength lies in historical fiction rather than science fiction. Wonderful for WWII history buffs!
Easy listening; easy-to-follow plot. Fix a cup of coffee/tea and listen while you knit. (Note that knitting knowledge is not essential to enjoy this story!)
Fantastic advice for someone striving to live life to the fullest! No, she's not a psychotherapist but the info is grounded in basic psychology and (as with all her books) she writes them with the help of experts in the field. (Deeper problems and issues can't be dealt with by reading a book but can open one's eyes to aid in defining weaknesses and seeking help when/if necessary.) This is a great guide for reaching for the stars!
Just finished this book with my 10 year old son. He loved the story but I really wish a professional would have been hired to do the narration. I had a bit of difficulty enjoying L'Engle's award winning book due to her strong NY accent and some sort of "smacking" sound she would make at the beginning of new sentence. (I didn't notice the smacking until the middle of the book. After that, my son commented on it as well.)
This story has it all! History, mystery, love, deceit, etc. Especially entertaining was the fact that there were actually 2 stories going on. One surrounding the main character (who was an author) and the other around the historical novel she was writing. Two thumbs up!
