Great character that gets you going about bonds

Würden Sie dieses Hörbuch einem Freund empfehlen? Wenn ja, was würden Sie ihm dazu sagen?

I think this is a very unusual setting that still works. Financial stuff is normally as boring as watching paint dry but the author explains it all so simply that everyone gets it and finds it amazingly interesting.

Welche Figur hat Ihnen am besten gefallen? Warum?

I like the boy best. It is an unusual family setting.

Wie hat Ihnen John Beford Lloyd als Sprecher gefallen? Warum?

The speaker is very good. He manages to speak in distinctly different voices without sounding silly i.e.when he is talking as a woman.

Hätten Sie das Hörbuch am liebsten in einem Rutsch durchgehört?

This book has to be savoured but it is hard as you want to rush on.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

It is not necessary to have read the first book but it is better because otherwise you might not want to listen to the first book.

This is a book to remember

Was hat Ihnen das Hörerlebnis von All the Light We Cannot See besonders unterhaltsam gemacht?

"All the Light We Cannot See" tells a story from the view point of two very different teenagers, one a blind French girl the other one a German boy attending a elite SS-boarding school that are in the end connected by their love for science and life. Both live in a completely different world at the same time, the 30ties and the Second World War. Both are raised in very different ways and still they meet. I don't want to spoil the book for you by telling the story but I can assure you I haven't read a book that was as touching as this for a long time.

too subtle for me

Gibt es irgendetwas, das Sie an diesem Hörbuch ändern würden?

A bit more action and this book would be a page turner.

Was würden Sie an der Handlung ändern, um das Hörbuch für Sie unterhaltsamer zu machen?

Somehow it is not believable that the Lord of the manor wouldn't turn to a minister for getting help. it is nearly unbearable to watch the downslide of the family without putting up at least some fight.

Wie hat Ihnen Simon Vance als Sprecher gefallen? Warum?

He is definitely brilliant. He can speak the doctor, the maid, the lover and what ever with such a convincing clarity.

Wenn dieses Hörbuch ein Film wäre, würden Sie ihn sich ansehen wollen?

no way

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

It is ok for listeners that are very patient and willing to listen to dialogues which are well written and who are not keen on some action.

oh boy!! An Indian Jack Reacher!!

Somehow I thought that this book was a bit more sublte. This is a book that has very simple characters: The noble Indian that is still cruel enought to kill defenceless enemies, the beautiful squaw, the wise old Indian, subhuman chinks etc. Moreover (but may be this was just my copy) the speaker repeated himself quite often literally.

love it

the main character is a young woman who has a great sense of humor and makes you lough even when the situation is not funny at all. I like especially that many people turn out to be very different from their first impression

a must read

Normally I only read thrillers and this is none but nevertheless there is enough suspense even for an adrenal junkie like me. Moreover you learn a lot about quakers and life in the states and the peculiar institution slavery.

Hopefully not the last book of this author

the setting for this thriller is unique. The book moves from prison to Investment and autism. You simply have to love the main character even for his flaws.

strangely funny

sad and very funny at the same time. It is a book for people that love extraordinary characters bred by a solitary upbringing in a swamp.I loved the female Speaker best. her voice is unusual.

great, read by a great speaker

Bought it just out of a whim but it turned out to be super entertaining. It offers suspense, a description of the inner life of teenagers (I can't believe for a second that those kids are only 11!), is funny and has a gifted reader. No one else can say uhhuh with so much feeling. It reminded me sometimes of Steven King.
