The world created by the author is interesting, the characters are delicate, there are moving moments, and the story is not too sweet.
"The longest road" since it was written by the same author. both are very good and enjoyable.
Yes, yet sometimes the accent was not clear (I'm not an English native speaker).
Healing for the wounds
I recommend it.
First of all the story: romantic, touching, moving!Then the narration: Ira and Ruth were narrated by Ron McLarty, and Sophia and Luke by January Lavoy, both of them did great work! They made it accurately to the context, and to the text.In addition, my first degree is at Art History, so it was nice to have something in common with Ruth and Sophia. I loved listening to the names of the famous artists, and to feel the appreciation of the author for Art.
Hard to say. I think Ira.He touched my heart.I love listening to old people, they have the wisdom of life, and Mr. Sparks wrote Ira beautifully.
As I said, I've enjoyed the narration very very much.
YES, it did!!I must say one morning, when I was listening, and the story was about something upsetting, I was upset all day, I was really sad for the characters. And towards the end, when the inevitable happened, I even shed tears. Sounds crazy, but I did.
I loved the end of the story very much.
I truly recommend this book.an enjoyable experience.Give yourself this lovely present!
Not so sure. This is a very long book. It was written over 20 years, and unfortunately it is a bit shown. Meaning sometimes the descriptions are too long, even boring. I read to the end but only because I've conducted a book club on this book. It was interesting to learn about the People of Mexico, customs, culture etc., but the story itself can be told in much less width - with all the respect to the author, whom I didn't know before, and viewed several YouTube videos following the book - he is a delightful sight.
Happy. Good end. Hope
Probably yes. I chose this book for its cultural arena - Mexico. I still believe this is one of its strengths. So a movie will add a dimension of views, sights, the food, and the people. I would be happy to see it.
I loved the epilog by the author.
I wouldn't know, as I haven't read it, but the narrator was excellent, the best I heard so far, so I believe an audio version gives you an additional aspect to the total experience of reading a book
I loved the main character as the story enables us to understand her most. I appreciate her: it is clear she has high potential for extravagant advertisement career, yet she chose to support her husband, family, and chose a drama teacher position in order to be more at home. but she has various colors and eventually her potential is accomplished.
I also loved William, for the way he handles his "40th" crisis, loves his wife deeply and willing to make an effort for them both.
The realization, but I don't want to ruin it for future readers
