Dull, Lukewarm, and Mediocre <br /><br />

The narration was pretty good but the story still fell flat despite this buttress. The premise of the book had so much promise but the author did not succeed past something perhaps a 10th grader could have written. Missing were the elements of a good book: characterization, use of vocabulary, memorable scenes, creativity, and originality to name a few. Wasted my time. I didn't hate it but it didn't add to my time spent either.

I love this book. Listened in the car. Beautiful story, beautifully read. Couldn't wait to get to the next "aural" page.

The story is good, but...

The biggest struggle I had with this book is the vernacular of the characters seems too modern for the time periods. The way the characters speak to one another today, but the books era is 80 years ago.

So wonderful!

I took this book inroo my library because it was assigned reading to my 12 yo son. I do that to help him prepare for lessons, class discussions and tests. what I wasn't prepared for was the impact this story would have on me. this was a beautifully written, eloquently read/portrayed and deeply affecting. I am so glad my son's teacher chose this novel.

No Promises in the Wind

If you could sum up No Promises in the Wind in three words, what would they be?

Moving, realistic, heart-felt

What did you like best about this story?

The way Josh matured and came to realize that if you're human, you will make mistakes.

Which character – as performed by Charlie Thurston – was your favorite?

Howie - he seemed to catch Howie's personality in the little bit of time he had

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

Howie's death was a shocker even though it was foreshadowed

Any additional comments?

I've done this as a novel study multiple times. This is the first time I've had the audible book. It really adds a lot to the study.

good writing, horrible narration

I will not listen to anything else from thise narrarator. The blandness of his voice was like a blanket over the storyline. His female characters were so obnoxious, I was on the verge of forwarding over it. Only my respect for authors and stories stopped me. It also seems the audible is much longer than it should be for the size novel that it is; maybe its the tone, maybe its the pace
