The narrators, and poor recording was difficult to listen to. While I understand the book is a daily reader, it doesn’t translate on audio format. Stick with the text format.

Well worth reading and listening to

It’s a keeper for me. Narration was spot on, and the story was moving. If you like redemption stories this is one of the better ones.

Good psychological suspense

Thoughtful, intense, moving. This is the first title I’ve read by Ms. Barton. The story twists and turns. The subject matter: pedophilia, abduction, domination, pornography is awful but the insights of the detective characters, even the journalist, was good. I wasn’t sure I would finish it, but the narration made it possible to follow through to the end. The cast is excellent.

So beautiful

Vampires, werewolves, witches are not in this book. As the author said in the first novel Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt, she chose the greatest supernatural character and dug deep for His story. I’ve read this book many times never failing to find a treasure to ponder. Thank you Ms. Rice for this rendering of Jesus of Nazareth.

I usually read Joanna Trollope when I want to hear realistic domestic situations and I’m rarely disappointed. And, as such, I learn more about myself by identifying with the characters at some point. This is not a fairytale, love conquers all story. It’s a growing up story.

Great narration, informative and encouraging

Michael Caine narrates in his usual warm, witty endearing manner. “If you got this far,” that’s the end of this book, and funny because for a while there I thought though it was a biography, it seemed more of an actor’s how-to and I almost didn’t continue, but I continued because overall I concluded it was less a biography and more of a ‘lessons for life’ which held my interest. After all, he’s 90, seen and done quite a bit and good at what he does. I took the life lessons to heart. Finally, it is good to hear “do what you love and do it the best you can”. Can’t beat that! Glad I bought it!

A wonderful narration to a favorite read!

This has been a favorite of my reads this year and the narrator has made it more delicious than others. Thank you to Ms. Stevenson for such a beautiful narration to a classic!

I got through 3/4 of this and it was a force feeding. I finally let it go because I found the main characters whiny, childish and insufferable. They were twenty-somethings into 30’s and they acted as if they were developmentally arrested. Happy to exchange it! Thanks Audible for being gracious!

If you listen to this book while driving, be forewarned to fits of laughter with eyes closed! Two times I had to stop because I was tickled to tears! I love this guy!

Great book, performance and sketches. Certainly a repeat listen!

Hands down, Anderson Cooper and his mother Gloria Vanderbilt, have spun a tale that is beautiful and incredibly intimate. I can relate to both so well it is amazing! What I learned is this: we are all connected. Different backgrounds aside, everyone can relate on some level and hope is essential to living fully. Thank you both for your unabashed transparency and kindness to be vulnerable with your story.
