This book -- both wonderfully written and narrated -- transports you to the small villages in Turkey in ther early 1900's. Birds allows you walk hand in hand with the characters as they journey through life largely driven by decisions made during and after WWI had and experience the lives of the Turks and Greeks at that time.
Echoing the suggestion of another reviewer, I highly recommend reading Paris 1919 in conjunction with Birds Without Wings. Together they provide a complete perspective on how these -- and other -- countries were forever altered by both the war and the decisions made at the peace table.
Birds Without Wings is wonderful love story, a lesson in history, and a tremendous insight into Muslim and Christian religions. I even bought a waterproof Ipod case so that I could listen to the book while swimming!
What a rich book in both the life of Alexander Hamilton and those with whom he interacted throughout his robust life. Hamilton is one of the best books I've ever read and I have purchased it for a number of friends.
If history had been presented this well when I was in school, I would have viewed it with a sense of wonder rather than dread!
A great read for anyone interested in banking, finance, the stock market, the history of our country, or just overcoming the odds when not born with a silver spoon in your mouth!
When a friend recommended this book to me I immediately downloaded it. I loved every minute of it and couldn't wait to see how it ended. I have in turn recommended it to my friends!
I bought this book because I was looking for something fun to listen to while running. It was so captivating that I couln't wait to get out each day and listen to it! Brendan Fraser's narrative was simply awesome -- I echo the previous reviewers' sentiments on his style and voices for each character. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great escape from everyday life!
This book was so wonderful to listen to. The story is compelling and is made more so by listening to the detailed descriptions of the Geisha life.
I looked for opportunities to listen to the book! I have already recommended it dozens of people and encourage anyone interested in learning while hearing a beautiful story to download it!
