I found this book enthralling, couldn’t stop listening …credit to both the writer…love your books Amor as well as easy to listen to narrators that pull you in.
This charming story introduces you to the most interesting characters and takes you on a journey that covers the gambit of thrilling, sensitive, educational, personal growth, generational influence and much more. Fabulous read…sequel please
Towles knocks it out if the park again. His mastery of story telling and weaving in all the nuanced layers of the story is 2nd to none.
Additionally the voice actors lend an amazing realism to the story so much so that you actually feel like your right there in the middle of the action!!
Well worth the listen!!!!
I loved it....I will listen/read this novel again.
Very much enjoy Towles style, and I thought telling the story from each character's perspective was great.
I’ve been a listener to audiobooks for 4 years and I’ve listened to some great books but this one!! It hit so many emotions for me. Absolutely my favorite and brought me to make my first remark on here an absolute winner this tale.
It's been a while since a book hooked me so completely. I couldn't wait to find excuses to put in my headphones and enjoy the tale for while. Beautifully written and artfully narrated!
Sometimes I would get lost and wonder what happened but it was just because they kept switching characters. I enjoyed the book, kept me interested in what was going to happen next, and some statements were very thought provocative
Took a flyer on this one and was rewarded with a great read. Good character development both the good and bad ones, wonderful story about second chances. I will go back now and check out his other books. Mr Towles is an excellent writer.
This is the best book I have read in a very long time. You won’t be disappointed….
I absolutely loved this book. I rarely give a book 5 stars, but this certainly deserved it. I listened to the book and was riveted. Such amazing and fun details and twists.
My husband and I listened together. We both were highly entertained - funny, sad, clever… enjoyed very much.
I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. I have been intending to buy the book, however ended up buying others. The Lincoln Highway is the type of boyhood story my sons would've enjoyed as preteens, just as they did Bob War, Huck Finn and A Long Way Gone. And a splendid read as I would expect from Amor Towels.
My reading group choose this as our book this month. Fascinating read and great narration. Little disturbed by several things that happened but still a great read. Wanted more details at the end.
I became a fan of Towles after reading a Gentleman in Moscow, a truly delightful tale told in an equally delightful style. The style here is somewhat different, and it packs a bit more of a punch, but the tale remains an immersive delight.
Author and narrator both are wonderful at telling a good story. Easy to listen to and very enjoyable.
The book is not as good as “A Gentleman in Moscow” but still worth a read or listen.
Excellent story and narration!
Great Character development! Couldn't stop listening. Absolute best book I've listened to in years and I average two to three books a week.
Excellent read; especially good character development. Always enjoy the theme of second chances. Terrific writer!
Beautifully narrated by three readers, this story, with its convoluted--and to me, rather annoying plot--and its unbelievable characters (considering it is set in the mid-1950s), is nonetheless compelling. The narrators (especially the gifted Edoardo Ballerini) carry the story along with energy and humor. It's impossible not to mention the sheer inventiveness of the author, Amor Towles. All the same, a few characters could be removed without any loss to the story, which would eliminate a few boring scenes.
Outstanding story!!! I was riveted! And unlike many other books the ending was perfect. The characters were interesting and the author didn’t leave any stone unturned. Highly recommend!
Great book. Enjoyed the ride. The ending was a bit abrupt. I loved the characters. It’s hard for me sometimes to get into these overly descriptive books. I’d like for the author to just get on with it. But all in all it was a real good ride.
Loved this book! In my top best reads for the year. I loved the characters, the unexpected turns, and the story itself. Well written and beautifully narrated.
Fantastic book, so well read! So many layers and allegories. And I was there with them all the time. Thank you for the lift!
The title is misleading; it takes the whole story to really get to it. Well-written, but with many tangetial "birdwalks" which may or may not embellish the plot (I'll let you decide). Again, the book is well-written and pleases the listeners ear.
Fantastic story and narrator
We really enjoyed this book. Such a good author. Liked the character development. We were on a long road trip. But not quite long enough. We finished it after we unpacked and were doing laundry. :)
This book was a pleasure, and I will say it was one of the best audiobooks I have ever listened to. The narrators were fabulous, the story was engaging, I didn't want it to end!
I loved this book!! I never rate but need to on this one! I listen to this book two weeks ago and I miss it and miss the characters.. It was beautifully written, Narrator was best I have listened to. Love, love, love.
Thoroughly enjoyed the story and narration.
Great book. I have read it twice. Wonderful characters!!!
i thought it was a great story. very well narrated, I enjoyed the listen.
Fun with light humor, a bit understated and subtle but as a whole it possesses plenty of depth and profundity. A relatively short novel, worthwhile for sure!
Great book! Intriguing, compelling, heart felt story line. Loved each of the characters! Narrators were great vocal artists. Read listen well worth it.
The narration was excellent. The plot was entertaining with well-developed characters.
Totally different from A Gentleman from Moscow; however, it was just as delightful! A book with seven different “First Person” perspectives enabled the listener to detect how different charters perceived the same experiences so remarkably different. Towels sentence structure and, descriptions and writing in general was a delight to listen to. All of the narrators were FABULOUS! Obviously, I really enjoyed the book!
Very enjoyable book. The story develops somewhat slowly for my taste but the descriptions and characters are very well described. The author makes them all come to life. Now I would like another book to get the main characters to their originally planned destination. And that ending!!!!!!! I didn't see that coming.
Amor Towles The Lincoln Highway once again it’s a series of intriguing characters that weave together making it surprising yet somewhat realistic story there’s time to laugh there’s time to cry a time to fbe amazed I love it
I seem to really enjoy Amor Towles' books a lot. This one not excluded. I really enjoyed this and the narration was great!
Loved, loved, loved this novel! Great character development-great characters! Could not stop listening. The ending makes me hopeful for a sequel!
I am convinced this book will become one of the classics that every one must read in school. The writing style is unique and magnificent. The story provokes every emotion, and the main narrator is the best I’ve heard.
I loved the characters
Wonderful book, nice to enjoy a story without any vices for a change. Dullsville is a nice change now and then. Thx
I really got into the characters, kept my attention all the way through.
