A wonderfully insightful book about one boy's navigation towards adulthood! Listened while driving and the normally exhausting 6 hours passed very pleasantly!
Loved everything about this book! the Locations,characters,and story, with a bit of African history thrown in!
I found that the parts of the story that take place in Italy are very interesting, and these are the parts where the narrator EXCELS. However,all of the rest of the multiple directions the story takes are barely tolerable, and then after all of that, the ending is not very satisfying. Guess I had my hopes up too high from all of the GREAT reviews I read.
I loved the whole package here!
The magnetic voice and performance drew me in; and the story,even though I remember bits from school years ago, is written so interestingly that I am compelled to keep listening & listening!
This is another of those rare audio books that I couldn't wait to listen to every day & was actually a little sad when I reached the end.
No, as much as I loved it, I think reading a book twice is enough for me.
It made me cry.
Can't remember liking the book this much when I read it first in high school! Loved Dylan Baker's performance!
The material this program teaches, is in a easy to learn, effective format. However the phrases being taught are phrases I rarely (if ever) use in English & doubt that I will EVER use in Spanish. (Do you brush your teeth after or before you comb your hair every morning?)I don't remember ANY NORMAL conversations in the whole book! But I DO know how to say "He takes off all his clothes every night at 11:00." That should come in real handy in a restaurant! Why can't they teach the same techniques using conversations that are actually useful?
