What made the experience of listening to Hold Me Tight the most enjoyable?

I am a very capable 61 yr old husband who feels and sees how my wife, my kids, friends, fail to see what they miss in life if they refuse to see their need for total closeness

What did you like best about this story?

It was so good to have someone read my mind and heart

What does Sandra Burr bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I'm and audible learner and her presentation I think made me feel the authors intent.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

In an extended sitting, but I did listen to it twice back to back and will again. I ordered hard copies for my wife and kids

Any additional comments?

God said it is not good for man to be alone. . We do best when we are vulnurable enough to either be accepted or denied. If you want to really be loved you have to let people in.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The author Mary Roach. Her dry humor and her realistic aproach to a certainty for all of us.

What about Shelly Frasier’s performance did you like?

Shelly Frasier is Mary Roach to the listener as she doesn't sound like she is reading but rather talking to you.

Any additional comments?

I felt the emphasis on the person being gone from the body they once lived in was what brought a healthy view to the body we so easily confuse with the real us. I think I listened to the book five times already. Very fun book and to do that about the subject is a gift.

Thank God for men like Robin Olds and those who served with him...this story is enough for even the manliest of men to feel like a 7th grader. Wonderfully told.
