His inner thoughts of how he felt about being pitched at by Clements and what he was thinking when Clements threw the broken bat at him.
No, I haven't.
Yes, his feelings towards how the NY fans accepted him and backed him as well as how he felt with and dealt with all the events surrounding 9/11. His big home run in the return game after 9/11.
Simply a must read for a NY Mets fan.
Reader made male characters sound like they had just crawled out from under a rock rather than be romantic leads. Female voices were not much better but at least they did not make me feeI I needed to wash up after listening to them.
This series is based in Australia, yet reader doesn't try in the least to bring any accent into her reading. Really takes a great deal from story.
This is written as if the year was 2053. Very light on all that is everyday normal. Takes some time to realize the tools of everyday life and the social restrictions. Also seems to be a "Big Brother is Watching" society. Would certainly have helped to have 2053 society explained in Chapter 1 rather than in bits and pieces.
Yes, and this is up to her usual excellent performance.
This book reminded me why I started listening to this series.
The first two-thirds of the book moves along very slow. You keep waiting for some action, any action to start. The last third is very good but it is hard to stay with it to the end. That saved the story. Worth the read, but not the most exciting book.
A story of two people growing to realize the love they have for each other.
I would have liked to, but too long. I found I was staying up much later than I should be as I had to get up the next morning because I didn't want to stop listening. Then again I didn't want to listen so long as I knew that would make me come to the end of the book and I wanted it to keep going.
A book you don't want to ever end.
I have read a number of Chaim Potok's books. It was quite a few years ago when I was travelling the subway to work and enjoyed them very much and learned a great deal about the Jewish customs and culture.
The friendship between the boys and the growing understanding of each other's differences.
The two boy's, of course.
It was made into a movie and Robbie Benson played the main character.
This book is marked as unabridged, but I remember there being many more references to the Jewish culture and explaining the meaning of many of the symbols and why they are still in the culture today. These were missing from this audible book. I still have the hard copy of the book from years ago (I liked it that much I kept it) and will try to go back to the hard copy of the book to see if I can find some of the parts that seemed to have been left out of the audible book. It was those explanations that added so much to the story as whole. Example, I remember explanations of the symbols in Danny's apartment and a great deal of detail at his sister's wedding and explaining not only what was happening, but why and how that symbolizing came into being. It explained why they wear the curls and fringes, not just that they wear them. Those were parts I was interested in and learned about.
Title doesn't seem to have anything at all to do with this book. Didn't see the Midsummer or the Magic. Until the end of the book it is just two people being mean to each other. Not a couple that just had a hard time adjusting to a difficult set-up for a marriage, but a couple that not only didn't get along, but didn't show respect to each other until very end.
The final chapter was the best of all the chapters.
Very monotone. Detracted from the story.
More story than just bedroom scenes.
Book is listed as "unabridged" but it reads/listens as if it was abridged. There are so many places that seem to be skipped over that if there was more context it would be more interesting and draw you in more. Good bones, but needs more.
This is my first by Catherine Bybee.
