This book touched deep chords within me that abhor the mistreatment of one being by another. The story is poignant, heartbreaking. There is no adequate justice for the wrongs suffered by the Jews, or any other people who have been the victims of a holocaust. This book helped me reconcile my emotions with those of the author. Well done!
This book deals with a very sensitive subject in a very sensitive manner. Still Alice follows the progression of Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease in a woman in her fifties. I laughed and wept while listening. It helped me understand my Mother's experience with Alzheimer's Disease and lightened my expectations should I also develop the disease. The book is powerful and poignant and I loved it!
I loved Gregor from the opening of the first book to the closing of the last book. Every scrap and tussle proved that Gregor is a very real boy in a weird world under the city of New York. I wanted the series to go on and on. Keep writing, Suzanne, you are a gifted storyteller.
I very much enjoyed listening to What's Left of Me. The character development is strong, the story has many nooks and crannies to explore, and the theme seems real - at what cost the burying of a part of oneself? I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a view of an alternate reality.
The twists and turns in Gone Girl kept me rapt until the very last word was read. I could not predict the story, couldn't guess what the characters would do next. Thrilling and chilling to the end. Excellent listen!
This book awakened a new reverence for life in me. George Guidall was impeccable in this performance. Every nuance, every emotion was portrayed with sensitivity and resonance. I highly recommend this listen. Elie Wiesel makes the holocaust understandable for one who has always been uncomprehending of the depths to which human beings can sink. His treatment of this part of his life is poignant and believable.
What a story - what a cliffhanger. I didn't know until the last few moments how the story would end. Excellent writing, marvelous narration. Suzanne, please keep writing. And Carolyn, your diction is music to my ears. I'll listen to this one again.
I'm not sure what I expected - this is an excellent follow-up to an excellent first part. The plot is complex and rich. The character development is outstanding. Mr. Vance outdid himself with the voices... I could recognize each character just by his voice. Can't wait to listen to the third book... tomorrow's commute, here I come!
This story is exciting, gripping, and unexpected in its twists and turns... like riding a roller coaster while wearing a blindfold. I couldn't wait for my commute each day. Excellent performance by Mr. Vance. I highly recommend this listen.
