Fantastic awesome gorgeous brilliant
I don't know what I like best - the tender and yet powerful way the author tells the story, or the sensitive and caring way it is read!
I could not stop listening - everything else in my life felt like disturbing and a nuysance. I finished the audibook in one vevening - okay, one complete night.
I will certainly listen to it at least once more, and I will certainly buy the sequels!
The story and its narration painted vivid pictures on my mind, I was really lost in it.
I am German, and I had no difficultier in understanding the English audio book.
Though the author uses the language virtuoso and I certainly don't know every English word, the reader tells it with such a clear and resonant voice in just the perfect speed, that the colorful and vibrant pictures are evolving nevertheless.
I don't know whether there is a German translation of this masterpiece - if there is, the translator must have had a very hard time to transfer the many-faceted mood of the best audio book I have ever listened to!
