Sintesi dell'editore

From the Newbery Award-winning author of Across Five Aprils and Up a Road Slowly comes a tale of a brave young man’s struggle to find his own strength during the Great Depression.

In 1932, Americans’ dreams were simple: a job, food to eat, a place to sleep, and shoes without holes. But for millions of people these simple needs were nothing more than dreams. When he was just 15 years old, Josh had to make his own way through a country of angry and frightened people. This is the story of his struggle to find a life for himself during those turbulent times.

So wonderful!

I took this book inroo my library because it was assigned reading to my 12 yo son. I do that to help him prepare for lessons, class discussions and tests. what I wasn't prepared for was the impact this story would have on me. this was a beautifully written, eloquently read/portrayed and deeply affecting. I am so glad my son's teacher chose this novel.

For this type of book....

....it is a good read. It gives you something to think about. I would not consider this book exciting, it is slow but meaningful. The character descriptions are fantastic, I can Visualize the boys perfectly, as if I was watching them on screen. Gives a really good understanding about the great depression was really like. I actually now understand whyMy grandparents that are well off, save every penny Dar frugal, when they do not need to be.

Dull, Lukewarm, and Mediocre <br /><br />

The narration was pretty good but the story still fell flat despite this buttress. The premise of the book had so much promise but the author did not succeed past something perhaps a 10th grader could have written. Missing were the elements of a good book: characterization, use of vocabulary, memorable scenes, creativity, and originality to name a few. Wasted my time. I didn't hate it but it didn't add to my time spent either.

Excellent!

I love this book. Listened in the car. Beautiful story, beautifully read. Couldn't wait to get to the next "aural" page.

The story is good, but...

The biggest struggle I had with this book is the vernacular of the characters seems too modern for the time periods. The way the characters speak to one another today, but the books era is 80 years ago.

No Promises in the Wind

If you could sum up No Promises in the Wind in three words, what would they be?

Moving, realistic, heart-felt

What did you like best about this story?

The way Josh matured and came to realize that if you're human, you will make mistakes.

Which character – as performed by Charlie Thurston – was your favorite?

Howie - he seemed to catch Howie's personality in the little bit of time he had

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Howie's death was a shocker even though it was foreshadowed

Any additional comments?

I've done this as a novel study multiple times. This is the first time I've had the audible book. It really adds a lot to the study.

good writing, horrible narration

I will not listen to anything else from thise narrarator. The blandness of his voice was like a blanket over the storyline. His female characters were so obnoxious, I was on the verge of forwarding over it. Only my respect for authors and stories stopped me. It also seems the audible is much longer than it should be for the size novel that it is; maybe its the tone, maybe its the pace
