I wasn't sure how I would rate this book until the end. Upon reflection of the total story, I decided I really liked it. The narration was excellent and you could tell exactly when Charlie progressed and regressed. A bittersweet, thought provoking story. I'm sure I didn't think of it on this level when I first read it as a youth. I'm glad I decided on the re-read as an adult.
I loved this story and the Narrator did an amazing job.
I will remember the overall story for a long time to come.
The story and narration are both superb. Immediately I was drawn to the main character Charlie Gordon and felt his heartbreaking struggles. I will definitely listen to this again at some point. I highly recommend this book.
Jeff Woodman really brought the book to life. He makes it very easy to sympathize with the main character.
The reviews have already said it all. An incredible book with deep characters and fantastic narration. Make sure you are in the mood to listen to a sad story - as someone else mentioned, you will cry.
Excellent story that helps explain the meaning of being human. Seeing the world through Charlie's eyes before and after his transformation opened my eyes to human nature and why compassion and understanding are so important.
This was a story that was original (I get sick of reading the same old mystery and the same old love story). The characters and story were very devoloped very well. Both interesting and moving.
Former IT guy for over 20 years. Formerly a sports bar owner/operator. Currently a restaurant manager. Trying VERY hard to get back into IT.
I enjoyed the story, good narrator, plot is great and heartbreaking. Sad of the events, but happy for his short experience!
I never saw the movie or read the book growing up. People have held it in such high regard and now I'll be doing the same.
Jeff Woodrow is the Michael Jordan of first person narration. This particular work is 95-96 Bulls Clutch time Michael Jordan. Superb.
The narrator did a wonderful job on this title. I didn't even realize how he was gradually changing Charlie's voice until I was well into the story.
Of course, it's not a happy story - bittersweet, perhaps. But definitely worth the listen.
