I originally chose this book because I am a native to Indiana--little did I know that when I started listening to it, they were residents in Lafayette, IN which is a town only 20 minutes from where I grew up.
It's a true story of survival in a family that uses religion as an excuse to be abusive to their children, both emotionally and physically.
David's continued desire to have a "family" despite the physical and emotional abuse he endured.
One of the last moments that Julia and David got to spend together on the beach
I enjoyed listening to the narrator, but I was completely bored with the story.
I really was bored with this entire story. I almost didn't listen the entire thing because I couldn't wait for it to end. I did like how he ended the store.
I don't know if I just wasn't in the mood to listen to this type of book, but I was completely bored with most of the story line.
I have a long commute to work therefore I listed to alot of audio books and this is quite possibly the BEST one I have ever listened to. I would highly recommend. The integration of mulitple narrators was excellent and all did a fabulous job with their characters. This IS a must listen!!!!!!!
It is a little difficult to follow in the beginning but definitely worth it. After I got into it, I couldn't stop listening. It is a fascinating audiobook and the narrator does a phonemonial job with the different characters. I would definitely recommend.
