“I’m especially proud to have an audio version of this book, since it harkens back to the way my first stories came to me--not by the written page, but by other people’s voices.” That’s Mitch Albom himself in his introduction. This writer’s commitment to the aural tradition is clearly demonstrated in the sophistication with which his book is presented. Erik Singer’s virtuoso performance is set off with musical interludes and background noises that are diverting but never distracting. The teaching parable is built around an 83-year-old war vet turned maintenance man who dies trying to save the life of a little girl. This is at the Ruby Point Amusement Park. “All endings are also beginnings. We just don’t know it at the time…” B.H.C. 2004 Audie Award Finalist © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 04]
