Lots of little tiny stories
Would you listen to Pulling Down the Barn again? Why?
Most likely won't listen to it again. It was ok, and the details were good, it was just sometimes there was too many tiny details that it was easy to get sidetracked from what was going on with the people.
If you’ve listened to books by Anne-Marie Oomen before, how does this one compare?
No i havn't
Which scene was your favorite?
I found the whole party line for the phones pretty cool. My mom had that all while growing up and my grandma still had times where neighbors calls could be heard when she picked up the phone in the mid to later 80s.
I also liked the part where the one brother was hurt by the other brother, yelling to the parents that the one brother had been killed/was dead, and then all the kids getting in trouble even though only the 2 boys did the actions.... so typical for a lot of parents even today.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, it was good to listen to a few stories and come back later and listen to a few more.
Any additional comments?

Pulling Down the Barn
Many interwoven short stories about growing up on a Michigan farm. The overall premise is good, but the tales sometimes ramble.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed.
