I thought that the commentary might be too simplistic for someone who has read and seen the play many times but I find that the examination of the language has been very enlightening.
This is an incredible narration of an incredibly well-written book. This is a prose that makes you want to read everything that Nabokov ever wrote, which is exactly what I am undertaking to do.
This is a real treat, at least for someone who already has read the book. The reader is superb and quite easy to understand. Some others commented about Irish dialect but I can't remember a single phrase that wasn't crystal clear.
This is a very inspiring account of putting the creation of a classroom community and the building of character first in a way that brings amazing dividends in student growth. The author does not tell you that he is teaching a gifted class of Mexican and Asian immigrants but let's you think that he is dealing with all o the problem that a teacher of inner city youth deals with. Still, I came away with dozens of ideas for my 4th, 5th and 6th classroom by listening to this book.
The narrator is excellent, the prose beautiful and the history something every American should learn more about. The author has a very interesting way of telling Santa Ana's story.
