By its very nature, the audio is better because the people featured speak not only in their own words but in their individual voices.
The interviews and the diversity.
When you feel down or wants to see how love overcomes difficult situations, this is certainly a go to recording.
Variety of settings and people.
Voices of Love.
I would listen again when I need that reminder of how good the simple moments in life can be.
It wasn't as much the actual narrator as it was the people being interviewed. I loved hearing the stories from the people who actually lived them.
I did listen to it all in one sitting. With it being abridged, it was only about an hour long and I listened to it over my lunch break one day.
This is an awesome listen, we need to hear these stories to help stay grounded.
the realness of the stories
All of them
Yes. It's a good book. And it gives you good advice. I recommend listening to this audio book.
Listening is an Act of Love allows one to sit back and be reminded of what is important in life. I plan to have my entire family listen to it during the holiday season. Why keep it to myself? This is a perfect gift and I thank you Audible.
Humane, sincere, and touching
The idea, the spontaneity despite the staging, and the topics addressed
The soldier who narrated how he killed a young good looking German soldier and how this affected him all his life
Although it brought on a few tears, I'd love to hear more. So interesting, the different kinds of relationships and situations people discuss.
The stories are related to you by the actual persons who visited the kiosk and told their stories. It is emotional and beautiful.
My favorite person in this series of interviews is a man married to a woman with alzheimer's Disease.
I have never listened to any of his other performances, but comparison is hard as there is not much of Mr. Isay speaking in the book.
The entire recording was moving to me. There was moment after moment of love and caring.
Yes, I will listen to this every time I need my spirits lifted or want my heart to be touched.
Since the book is only about an hour long, it's the perfect listen. I do wish it was longer though. I love to listen to real stories by real people.
