narrator did fine; not a challenging book to read
I think I found no interest because the book is geared toward younger people just on the cusp of building their lives, and for them it should be fine
I love Kurt Vonnegut's works of fiction
enlightenment and I was already familiar- through first hand experience- with hospice and have cared for two dying relatives, and was a volunteer visiting patients at a nursing home.
The author, a surgeon, and his father, a surgeon, and his mother, a doctor, have 120 years of medical experience between them and even they were befuddled moving through the medical and hospital system of health care. Their story is greatly enlightening.
The author's daughter's piano teacher's end days.
I loved learning about the origination- and creators- of the Eden alternative nursing home and the assisted living evolution.
Doctors are hesitant to tell a patient when a chemo regime or radiation will not prolong life and may in some cases make one's death march a more agonizing one. This book helped me understand what doctors say and what doctors mean. And it helped me understand what questions one needs to ask, and what questions doctors need to ask. I can't highly enough recommend this needed book because we will all die, and it's extremely important to have as good a death as one wants the best possible life. Every doctor should be required to read this book.
anyone who likes pornography
not debase her main character
no, but she wasexcellent
using the paint brush to supply her orgasm
I won't purchase anymore of this author's books
none. once was enough. I rarely read the same book twice, except for Geek Love, and some of Herman Hesse books
I've not read anything like it before
the Chinese men were quite humorous
Well, the writing is brilliant, just brilliant. When Harold wakes from his first night spent outdoors the descriptions of nature are beautifully lyrical and orginal.
Of course Harold, and because his awakening is so profound and beautiful
Jim embodied Harold. Jim Broadbent is FANTASTIC!
I guess Queenie because I want to know her story
I'm recommending this book to everyone. It's beautifully and movingly written.
story line was very engaging, as was the writing and narration
the plot twisted and turned in unexpected ways.
many come to mind. Nell on the ship, Eliza writing her fairy stories and Nate illustrating them
I gave the book 5 stars for everything. The author reads her own words very well. The story is quite unexpectedly good and toward the end I certainly didn't want to put it down. I think the characters, in some instances, did what the author needed them to do rather than what was in keeping with their defined attributes, and some of the characters are so narrowly colored to one end of the spectrum, rather than some grays. It's a good book, without swear words and graphic sex, which is a plus nowadays.
deep insights into the human condition as external circumstances push and pull the psyche through the cycles of life, testing Phillip's vascillating nature of selflessness versus selfishness
Phillip's conversation with Fannie's brother after his arrival in France.
many many. Phillip's deepest poverty and subsequent hunger were terribly painful and felt viscerally. The thoughts his poverty drove him to think were particularly torturous.
This is truly a great work of art and worthy of the time investment. The book and the movie are worlds apart. If you've seen the movie, you definitely have no idea how vast the book.
Do treat yourself.
As with all of George Eliot's books, the language is astounding and the insights into human nature are deep. The story is interesting and morally important.
The conversations and feelings shared between Daniel and Ezra.
no, I haven't listened to her other readings.
When Daniel met his mother.
I first read Middlemarch- an amazingly brilliant book, and was so taken with Eliot that I then chose Daniel Deronda. DD didn't really grab me, seriously grab me, until chapter 32. From 32 to the end, I was completely moved. If you haven't read Eliot, or you did long ago, do give Middlemarch a go; as great as literature can get. I'm now listening to Mill on the Floss by Eliot.
I have no idea
serious disappointment. I greatly love some of his films.
If you seek humor, I don't think this book has it, but there's much silliness.
Vonnegut fills his canvases with light and love and mystery and the vagaries of humans who would do evil.
the main character is most fully rendered and focused upon. he's a primary color. the others are all tertiaries.
He embodied the characters in such a way you the listener can determine what you feel about them.
when the sister is revealed
I love Vonnegut's vision of what is possible.
Never by Mr. Griffin and honestly, not by Mr. Milton either. I don't agree with much that he writes.
It is Middlemarch, one of the greatest books of all time.
