Recensioni

Wow! This book is worthy of the hype. An absolutely riveting story......I simply could not put it down. The fact that this book tells a very real story.......a scenario that played out many times in the days when diphtheria ravaged small towns....makes it all the more harrowing. This is a haunting tale, that will stay with the reader long after the last page has been read. This probably isn't one for the easily disturbed....otherwise, I recommend for anyone who likes hard hitting books.

Too reliant on current tools - text, iphone, lingo - that will become dated with the passage of time. Which is unfortunate, because the theme and narrative, when devoid of these crutches, could be timeless.

A lovely, quiet novel of manners.

-Audiobook narrated by Jonathan Davis-

Manny is the manager of a Red Lobster for the very last shift before the restaurant closes forever. He deals with the quirky personalities of his staff, minor restaurant-related problems, a blizzard, and thinks about what he’s going to get his girlfriend for Christmas and whether he still has feelings for his ex-girlfriend, who is a waitress on shift with him.

This was nice to listen to, even though slice-of-life is not really my kind of book. It’s realistic, and character-driven. Very bittersweet. The narrator was good, and had distinct voices for each character, but I'm not sure this is a story suited to audiobook (for me, at least). Too many characters.… (altro)
