There IS no story. It's just a series of snippets about some unimportant, disconnected events that took place during the time the author wore different pairs of glasses. There was nothing to tie the 'stories' together. No plot, no sense of importance. Just meaningless glimpses into the author's past.
The narration was fine considering there wasn't much to work with.
I wouldn't necessarily say it was a "waste of time" since I listen while walking my dogs. But it is certainly nothing memorable or worth recommending to anyone else.
Don't waste your time.
The premise of the story. (liked)
Obvious, immature "love story" (dislike)
There is really nothing "wrong" with the story. It is just written more at a youth level than that of an adult.
No. Other than I probably will NOT go see the movie.
I very much enjoyed "The Hunger Games" trilogy and thought this would be similar. Hunger Games was clearly written with a more mature audience in mind.
This is the first audio book that I have listened to. I originally bought the kindle version to read but decided that I might enjoy listening to the story while walking with my dogs and when lying in bed at night.I have always loved being read to and was hoping that this could be a pleasant experience. I was NOT disappointed! Because of the quality of my experience with "Life of Pi", I am absolutely sold on the value of audio books. I was mesmerized by both the story and the narrator's voice. I am already avidly searching for my next book to listen too...
As I mentioned, this is my first audio book but I found Mr. Woodman's melodic voice both soothing and captivating. I didn't want to story to end!
It's going to be hard to top this!
