MUST HAVE.. I lLOVE IT!!
Extremely pleasant voice and touching story
I would listen to Pictures in My Head again because it was so intriguing to learn about how Gabriel Byrne grew up and faced his challenges in life. It provides not only an insight into his life, it also gives you an understanding of his mind and his thinking. Well, and his voice with the thick Irish accent is just one of a kind. I am so glad he narrated this audio book himself. This is very unique and valuable.
The level of detail took me on a journey to Ireland and into the mind of Gabriel Byrne.
I listened to the audio interviews that are available here at Audible. They complement the information that you get about Gabriel Byrne, but this audio book is clearly the best listen.
HIs childhood experience with his awful school teacher and how she torn down the flowers that he brought into school for... listen yourself!
I am glad that Gabriel Byrne published and narrated Pictures in My Head.
