Engaging, Witty, Smart

Like no other I have ever read
What does Tom Bodett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Tom Bodett paints vivd images with metaphor and weaves a tale like no other author. While his voice may seem somewhat monotone, it suits his material and style of writing so perfectly, it makes it feel familiar, like you are listening to an old friend tell the story, and leaves you believing you know the people in the stories.
Any additional comments?
Tom Bodett is one of the Great American Story Tellers. Don't miss this or any of his wonderful tales.

I enjoyed this audible book immensely. Each chapter is like a short story but the author weaves the stories together in the most magical way to create a longer tale. Bodett’s Reading is magical also; The timing and intonation bring out the poignancy of each scene. He doesn’t tell us what the characters are feeling but rather gives us a vivid handle on there on their inner life by his pristine description of their actions and the setting. The plot is full of improbable coincidences but we are happy to go along. He avoids the neat ribbon that ties all the stories together, yet we have a feeling at the end that it all makes sense. I recommended strongly as a listen, and I’m left wondering if it is as superb without Tom providing the voices.
