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.
One of the best.
No comparison, this story was real people telling bits of their life-memories!
No not yet
Absolutely and I did.
Can't wait to hear more of his interviews.
no - it's a one time listen
The acts of love program is outstanding - this was a 1 hour of tears and smiles. enjoyed!
Smell the flowers - be aware of the bees - enjoy the rain that waters these.
You see, you are going to be downpouring tears of incredible joy. You won't be able to help yourself. In fact, I dare you not to. And if you do not cry, you just might not have a heart; best see a doctor.
This was a great collection of 3-5 minute stories about people's lives. I was so intrigued I looked up their web site and was happily surprised I could listen to other stories on the website. I immediately sent a web link to all my friends and family. I laughed, I cried, I had a roller coaster ride of emotion during this short hour of time. This incredibly moving collection of conversations, recollections, tributes, and memories are from ordinary - extraordinary people. God bless the StoryCorps, and all of the beautiful stories it is collecting. What a treasure. And best of all, it was free.
Real people telling real stories. Nothing compares.
And Merry Christmas to ya-all!!
