The personal touch. I had a real sense of the character of C.S. Lewis. What a remarkable thinker he is. I laughed, smiled, reflected, determined to be more fervent in prayer, and listen to this audible a few more times.
A friendship between two men who respected each other and loved each other though they differed in their understanding of God. It was refreshing to see two men
I would say C.S. Lewis.
The time when C.S. Lewis talked of Malcolm's son and they joked about his future and then the boy was possibly in dire straights. The words of comfort C.S. Lewis gave were moving.
Reading or listening to the writing of C.S. Lewis makes me want to read all that he wrote. I am not totally clear on all that was spoken in the audio but his intellect is far above mine. Still I glean much from what I hear. Thanks for making this an audible.
Possibly. I did feel it dragged somewhat and the female voice done by the narrator was unrealistic. The two women in the story were supposed to be young and beautiful and the attempt at the female voice left something to be desired. He did a better job at it than I could have.

The book was entertaining but it made me think I should be listening to non-fiction rather than fiction. I listened to Wild Swans and that was great.

I would listen again because there is so much information regarding the three generations covered in the book. I just purchased the book
She has a pleasant voice and I found her easy to listen to. I don't think I can chose one over the other. I find listening when I have the time a good way to
I think the death of the grandmother was tragic because in my mind it brought to the fore the terrible atrocities that were perpetuated when the communists were seeking power and doing all manner of evil to their own people under Mao.
I lived in China on and off for four years and taught English in an upper middle school and two universities. I knew something about Mao and actually tried to find some information on Lei feng but it is sparse. Mostly I heard he was a kind soldier who helped people. The book gave me a more complete history and I found it intriguing and informative. Having lived in China I know Mao is highly revered and with the revisionist history and the propaganda machine, the Chinese people seem unquestioning about their past. The author of this book did the one thing that frustrated me when I was talking to Chinese who did not do this and that is questioning.
I made friends in China and I spoke to her about Mao and the horrible things he did and her response was:
