I am exactly his age and I could relate to so many things he said.
Is "700 Sundays" a book? That was marvelous also.
Loved David Pittu who performed so many different accents brilliantly. Did not read it.
Finding out that the package he had so carefully secreted was not what he thought it was.
I loved learning about the woodworking trade.
I have recommended this book to many. I love it. I have read it twice and it is not a short book. The descriptions are colorful, interesting and imaginative. I get the impression a lot of this is drawn from experience, some marvelous, some hideous and everything in between. Characters are well formed and recognizable.
A Passage to India perhaps although this book is more contemporary and grittier. Another aspect of the Jewel in the Crown after the British have left. Great illustration of life in the slums and the wide difference between the haves and have nots.
I LOVE Humprhrey Bower and have listened to many of his readings. He is a marvel at different accents and the characters are recognizable by their voices. He is a wonder.
It was hard to stop but, at 43 hours, unfortunately a necessity.
I shall read this book every couple of years until I die. Truly brilliant!
Intriguing, mysterious, satisfying
The narrator. I saw her grow from an insecure spinster to a partner in every sense of the word. She was cowed by Mrs Danvers but overcame her fear and prevailed as the lady of the house.
She did an excellent job on all of them I particularly liked her portrayal of Rebecca's cousin but I think the best was as the narrator, Maxim's wife, who was never named (unless I missed it!)
I would have liked the book to continue on a bit to show the aftermath of the fire.
The ultimate justice brought about from the lovers' unraveling.
Therese's shock at realizing her lover's intentions towards her husband in the rowboat.
Lovely lyrical reading allowing my imagination to soar.
This is one of my favorite movies and I loved the book. I had no idea it was a Stephen King novel and was surprised there was no spooky stuff in it. A good look at the prison system of the early part of the last century with an intelligent protagonist who ultimately triumphed. A very enjoyable listen.
The narrator who was willing to learn, trust and find redemption with the hero of the story.
Redemption says it all.
Yes, there was so much historical detail that was rich, fascinating and colorful. His prose made me look forward to the next chapter and I will definitely read the next two books in the series.
The Thorn Birds as a family saga.
His marvelous knack of capturing accents.
How an egalitarian nation was founded on the other side of the world.
Excited to read Tommo and Hawk. Waiting for my next credit!
Certainly. It absolutely made it more authentic to have the author read it.
Al Franken is so open, honest and FUNNY.
Loved it all.
How the rich screw the middle classes and what to do about it.
I would recommend Jonah Hill as the lead unless Al would agree to do it himself.
The sweet innnocence of the protagonist; the faith he had in himself and the path he had chosen to follow and his boundless enthusiasm in attaining his goal.
When the rooster was killed.
I love this narrator. I choose books based on the fact that he is reading them. He is an excellent actor and does different voices and accents with ease. Very convincing.
I will eventually listen to everything by this author read by Humphrey Bower.
Culture differences, educational, surprising.
Learning about the way things are done in India.
Very authentic sounding. Steady and smooth.
Mr. Aushak to find out why he married Pinkie Madam and why he didn't follow her.
