    "The Impossible Dream"
    If you could sum up The Storks of La Caridad in three words, what would they be?

    Alive, Engaging, Real


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Storks of La Caridad?

    Throughout, the way the tension builds incrementally without seeming forced or contrived


    What about Fred Filbrich’s performance did you like?

    How one voice can bring to life the interior and exterior of so many characters is a mystery to me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I sat in the parking lot (of my destination) for 45 minutes to finish the chapter I had just begun when I arrived. It was that good.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't like audio books. I prefer the "feel" of a paper book in my hands, and I was skeptical about this on in particular because I had so enjoyed "Storks" when I read it some years ago. But THIS audio book was "the impossible dream" .. and audio book that moved as quickly and as surely as original. Weinberg's Pfefferkorn has found the perfect voice in Filbrich, and comes alive in a new way. I cannot say enough good things about this merging. I enjoyed it on several levels.
