Believable, down to earth, and real.
Barbara Kingsolver is an exellent narrator. I love to hear her read her own work. The story is so real and believable. You feel like you could know these characters, and live in rural Tennessee with Dellarobia and her family. I love that she took a real issue facing our population and made it in to a wonderful story, with delicious facts, and bits of reality woven in to her fictional plot.
Near the top. I have a list of special favorite books that I would re-read, and that I recommenc to friends/family. This book is on that list
Amelia was my favorite. She was so "normal". She expressed her emotions well, and handled herself very maturely.
Oh the characters came alive with such emotion! She especially reads teenage girl voices very well.
The title is exellent. I wasn';t sure what it meant, but after reading the book I realize how clever the title is.
The author explores parenthood with all it's emotions, flaws and joys. the book is heartbreaking and beautiful.
Absolutely! I felt like I was there, hiking the trail along with the author. Her descriptions of the scenery was vivid and real. She was not a fitness guru, but a regular ordinary young woman trying to find herself. I loved every minute of the book.I'm sure if I reread it, which I plan to do, I'll pick up things I missed the first time through.
I liked the "realness". This could have been someone I knew. She is a great story teller. I could picture everything as she described it.
Oh I've always loved Bernadette Dunn. She is an excellent narrator. I would read almost anything she narrated!
Yes. I did not listen in 1 sitting, but I was sad when the book ended!
The author is a master story teller. She keeps you guessing all the way through the book.
Love you more, by the same author also kept me guessing throughout the book. She is wonderful at tying in characters and events.
The fifteen year old daughter was my fave.
almost! It was difficult to put down.
I was disappointed. I was expecting more, and I didn't find it. The book dragged on a bit too much. The author went in to much detail. It just never sparked my interest. I did finish it. I wouldn't talk it up, but it certainly wasn't the worst thing I've read, either.
Oh, I'm not sure. Maybe, I guess I wouldn't rush too, but I might.
He is an excellent narrator. He made the boy seem more alive.
OH NO!! Not a follow up, skip to a new topic, Mr. Ford!
This book of essays weren't very funny or humorous. I was eager to read these essays, but didn't find them captivating, funny, or attention grabbing.
I might, but I've changed my oppinion of his talent.
He is a good reader/narrator. He reads well, and has good emphasis and tone.
Yes. Listening to the book is a much richer experience.
Neither, but it kept me guessing "who done it" and why.
I have read all Tana French's books. This author is good!
Good contemporary fiction.
The characters came to life and had individual personalities.
I love Emily Giffin and have liked everything written by her thus far.
This was a very well written book. It was enlightening to read about life in Afghanistan during the end of the last century. The author is a wordsmith and a master at his craft. I felt like I was right there experiencing life along with the characters. I will probably reread this book at a future date.
I was terribly disappointed in this book. I like the authors books concerning her series about the yarn shop, but this was so so predictable. Maybe good for a highschool teen..summer read, but i could see it coming after 5 minutes!
