I Love to lIsten to books. I'm one of those people that like to read or listen to books over and over. I Love audible.
I do. To hear these letters in the voices of their authors is amazing. I met Damien and Lori at their book signing in Chicago, and I felt like I knew them because I was already so familiar with their voices. It's like sitting by a bon fire chatting with them about their Love!
This is a non fiction love story. A chronical of love letters from death row. I don't believe you can separate these two people. They are essentially one entity of undying love. That's what I imagine is true from what I read.
As the years went by and they got closer they used the same language. You can not separate them as two people or "characters". They are one together. They both did a fantastic job of reading their own words. you could literally feel the LOVE, frustration, jealousy, passion, lust, and longing. I'm so glad they read it themselves.
the personal nature of these letters moved me to tears. But, I got to say when Lori was talking about sneaking fruit into Damien. fruit swinging between her knees attached to her panties. I laughed out loud when I heard that. And when she talked about wearing 4 inch heels and it was very girly. she gave Damien all the credit. all these things hit very close to home for me. This book meant more to me than I can ever articulate.
This book is a true love story. a REAL love story with all the ups and downs couples go through. It is a true "stand by your man" story. A story about the strength a women can possess when she truly believes in a man and what she wants. I can not say enough good things about it. Especially the fact that they READ IT THEMSELVES! authors don't normally do that. Damien has now done it twice! There is something so very magickal about listening to an author read his/her own words. This LOVE story was pure magik read by the people in love. Thank you so much Damien and Lori. It is extreamly difficult to be in love with a man in prison. These letters are so personal and it was truly selfless of you to share it in your own voices.
I read reviews and really had high hopes for this book. I thought it would be such an interesting story! I'm all for a good love story, but give me a break. I'm halfway through this book and its so awful. I love you, no I love you more, you are so awesome, no you are awesome, I can't wait to make love to you, no I can't wait to make love to you more.....ugh PUKE! It just drones on and on and on and on. I am trying hard to continue hoping that this sugary sweet nonsense stops and a real story emerges but I am not very hopeful.
Too much of the sickening sweet love letters and not enough "story" to keep you interested.
I do enjoy their voices as they are able to convey the actual emotions well.
I probably shouldn't answer since I haven't finished the book, but as of right now I feel nauseous because its just the same stuff over and over.
