If I had a top ten of audio performances, this would be on it. The alternating voices of a teenager (who sounds like one) and an old lady (who sounds like one) were a perfect balance. Both audio narrators were excellent. I would have liked this book a lot had I read it, but having listened to it...4.5 stars!
It was one of those "heartwarming" stories that I usually hate. Maybe because there's enough bad stuff that happens to everyone, enough sadness without making you feel depressed, enough complexity in the plotline, enough mystery, enough of the historical (female pilots in WW2), and so on.
I read the reviews on Amazon and was kind of surprised. It seems like most people think everything is a 5 star read (and so often what people rate 5 star, I return because it's so very bad) but this was spread out between 3, 4, and 5 stars. Which is why I feel compelled to actually write this.
The book is very well written, characters are fully developed, great plot--ok, tiny quibble with one of the main plot points. Without getting into spoilers: I got it because I can relate and understand the particular issue in American history but I did wonder if it had been explored enough that so people who couldn't relate and had no background would be convinced.
