I enjoyed the story and hated the narration. I didn't pay attention to who the narrator was when I bought the book; however, an hour into it I realized it had to be the author. There was no other explanation for the poor narration.
The narrator was almost whispering at times and there was no inflection in his voice. It was basically monotone for over 8 hours. Also, the narration was not succinct. Another reviewer called it a slurring of the words and I completely agree.
I greatly regret purchasing the audiobook strictly because of the poor narration. I highly recommend those interested in this book to purchase the e-book or hardcopy/paperback instead of the audiobook.
I would highly recommend this book for the story, but only as an e-book or hardcopy/paperback purchase.
This is by far my favorite audio book, and I listen to an average of two books per month. The book is surprisingly funny and uplifting.
I experienced a wide range of emotions while listening to the story. I laughed out loud at times, was touched by the sweetness of the main character, and was also very sad at times.
Having grown up nine miles from a reservation, I was moved when the main character described the vast differences between the lives of Native American and white children.
I very much enjoyed the narration, particularly the author's accent. This is one book I'm so glad I listened to instead of read on my Kindle. I think the author's emotion during narration greatly enhanced my experience.
