  • "Brilliant !"

    Overall

    I have given this book a rating of five stars, it was my first Jennifer Worth and I simply can not wait to hear / read more after finishing Farewell To The East End. Very funny, emotional and completely captivating, brilliantly written, I was gripped throughout. This one is nice and easy to follow so good to listen to whilst doing other things like knitting or following a pattern, the characters are nicely portrayed so it was easy to connect with them and get a real sense of each persons story within this book. Really love the way each chapter develops, a good read, definitely recommended. The rarator: Saskia Butler, has done a fantastic job bringing the story to life, really like her voice which made for a very good experience listening to this one.

    Written by Jennifer Worth, Farewell to the East End is one of the trilogy of memoirs upon which the popular BBC series Call the Midwife is based. London's East End in the 1950s was a vibrant place-a close-knit community of families where children made playgrounds on bombsites and a lively social scene emerged.

    As a young man, Ed Catmull had a dream: To make the world's first computer-animated movie. He nurtured that dream first as a Ph.D. student at the University of Utah, where many computer science pioneers got their start, and then forged an early partnership with George Lucas that led, indirectly, to his founding Pixar with Steve Jobs and John Lasseter in 1986. Nine years later and against all odds, Toy Story was released, changing animation forever.

    Who but Mark Twain could express humor about the obituaries? In the end, however, we come face to face with an editorial bent Twain discovered (or slightly embellished) in postmortem poetry. An odd bit of honor, humor, and an example of what not to share in an obituary from one of the greatest American writers. Narrated by Glenn Hascall.

    Even though the power of God is beyond comprehension, far too limitless for my limited mind, it is still fascinating to explore. That's what these words in this collection of poetry and prose are all about. Wherever you are, whatever you may be going through, I hope you will find this collection refreshing and inspiring. We're on this journey together, and even though you may feel you are alone, you are not alone, have never been, will never be.
