A gripping dancer-meets-writer Italian love story.
Where does Mina's Eyes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is in my top 5 audiobooks! I've been listening for 21 years and listening every day. So that's about 500+ books! This one is the perfect blending of story, writing and performance to make a riveting, enjoyable yet thought-provoking experience. I have enjoyed it four times already and no doubt will hear it again.
What other book might you compare Mina's Eyes to and why?
I can not compare this book to any other. For me, it was unique for two reasons - the character development and Diane's performance.
Have you listened to any of Diane Busch’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have heard some other performances by Diane. This is her finest performance to date! Her multiple voices are distinct and discernible. Her Italian accent was well studied and never faltered - it made Martina's character come alive and be even more believable.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes! Even though I have never listened to an audiobook at one time, I was always anxious to get back to it - probably 3 to 4 times a day.
Any additional comments?
Martina's boyfriend previous is Kane is a character to watch. He is well written. Also the author's insightful description of Kane's writing style in handling his characters I found compelling. I reflected on it as a metaphor of God's relationship with His creation of man as well as giving man free will. I didn't catch the insight until my fourth listen. I share it as a nugget gleaned from much time with the story. I wonder if the author intended the metaphor?
