The novel keeps you guessing until the end. The narrator does a good job conveying the accents of the characters as well.
It's sad, heartwarming, good but not great. Some parts I suffered through to reach the end and the final outcome. I would recommend it, but may not read it again myself.
Phenomenal story and performance! I loved it all through, couldn't put it down!
However, what happened to Emilene and Betsy? Does she really never see or hear from her family again? This novel was too good to stop at 1. You have to continue the story into the Civil War and post Civil War! I expect a follow up novel! Hell, do a whole series.
I loved this book and I loved the movie too. The book is almost as good as The Help or The Kitchen House. I look forward to finding more novels like this.
Hopefully no one will enjoy this book.
It was most disappointing because it was obviously written by someone who has never been to West Virginia and knows nothing about us.
The narrator was great. Although he narrated in an Allegheny accent, he used excellent emphasis in all the right places.
This book annoyed and disappointed me.
I hope that books/stories like this do not shape the country's views of West Virginia and its citizens.
It really puts you in the Old South.
I always enjoy January Lavoy's narration.
It's relatable for anyone who has trouble with her mother.
Awesome story, almost believable. If you enjoy stories on the supernatural or spiritual books you will enjoy this one. I hope he writes more.
This was one of King's better works. I have read several of his titles and this one is better than most, which is saying something. He didn't overload this one with disgusting or vile scenes and it's an edge-of-your-seat plot that keeps you wondering.
I have read two of Albom's other titles and thoroughly enjoyed them both. This book was disappointing. I didn't finish it to be completely honest. I kept waiting for something to happen or some great tidbit of wisdom or even something especially heartwarming, it never came, so I gave up.
The people calling from Heaven should have something a little more insightful to say. Angels should call too, at least, if not God.
If you are visiting Georgia this would be a great book to read. However, if you are looking for an entertaining story this is not it. It is written like a travel guide.
