I've been wanting to read this book for a long time ever since my daughter started rowing last year. Loved it! The story is so exciting and magical. It's every bit as good as my friends told me. This is my first Audiobook experience and I must say, I can get addicted to it.
Wonderfully written and the narration fern gave me goosebumps !
Nice story. Many facts though at times. Great narrator.
Magical story with incredible character development and vivid descriptions! I LOVED How the writer flipped back and forth between current events of the time and what was happening in the small neighborhoods of Washington. The reader's tones made it hard to turn off. It was my first time hearing the story of Joe and his team and I was so impressed by their story.
I loved this book. I have no interest in crew or any sport but it was inspirational.
Loved this book so much. I knew nothing about the sport of rowing. So amazing!
Fantastically done book and narration. I recommend this book to anyone.
What a story! Wonderful this story has been made known. The author makes beautiful analogies between the the spruce used to craft the shells, the water, the ancient handtools and character. The reader is inspired to work hard and make a contribution. One of my all time favorites!
Wonderful story about perseverance. The boys and their story was brought to life by the narration. Simply loved it.
Really great American story through the lens of a unlikely hero. Would recommend to anyone!
