I liked the character of Sarah and the way she helped me think about what life is like for people with serious disabilities.
The character of Sarah and her relationship with her aunt provide the author with a vehicle for addressing some interesting issues "faced" by many people in our world today. Sarah is easy to relate to, so the issues do not come out in a heavy handed way.
I find this question hard to answer because I truly admire Holly Adams' work. I find her interesting to listen to and particularly enjoy the way she creates diverse characters through the way she uses her voice. I do not think I would have enjoyed this story so much if she had not been reading it.
This is worth listening to. The quality of the performance and the nature of the subject matter make it well worth your time.
There were some pretty far fetched moments in the book, but overall, quite engaging. The book certainly held my attention, and I thought the narration was very well done. It was the kind of book that had me looking forward to being in the car to listen to the next installment. I'm afraid I thought the weakest segment of the book was the ending, but I won't reveal it.
I kept thinking I could tell where the book was going, but it would veer off somewhere else. I like that about a book.
Yes....I ALWAYS listen to books a couple or three times.
Enjoyed them all
No...only because I don't EVER do that. It's a personal thing
love to read and love audio books!Favorite authors: Marcia Willett,Nevil Shute,Mary Stewart,and Jacqueline Winspear. I could go on and on but wont bore you! I belong to a book group and we often" Listen" to the books we have selected for the month while using a paper copy for the discussion notes. It really enhances the quality of the story.
I like most of Angela Hunts books (a few exceptions) This is a really good ,well researched novel about a girl born with Treacher-collins syndrome. (terrible facial malformations)
It sensitively deals with the struggle of a brilliant young girl ,isolated from the world for her entire life dealing with her handicap in a positive way. Suspense is provided by the fact that she works for the CIA as a computer analyst and gets caught up in international intrigue.
Great narration makes this book a winner.
