I’m ready to move

I thoroughly enjoyed this expose’! What the author shares I know to be true. Having been to Canada several times, I appreciate the culture, the norms, & the people. The only down side, & I know this from living in Minnesota, is the prolonged cold winter!

A Story about Growing Up in the 70's and 80's

If you grew up in the 70's or 80's, and you'd like to reminisce about your childhood, this is an entertaining trip back in time. You'll relate even if you didn't grow up in Canada.

Unexpected

I don't remember how or when I picked up this title. After finishing a draining long book I found this in my library and gave it a listen. The beginning with the bank calendars did not give me hope. Soon though, his utopic musings started to sound very appealing. I can see why so many people choose to live there. Were I not so firmly established where I am, his descriptions made me think that maybe I could choose the same.

It Really Does Sound Awesome

Listening to this book takes hardly any time at all.

I recommend it for several reasons:

It has a delightful story

It is really easy to listen to quickly

It makes you wish you could visit, and perhaps live in Canada (if you haven’t or don’t)

It makes you wish the world was more like Canada

Makes me want ketchup chips (and to try some of those other things he mentions)

The author narrates it and makes the story better told in his own voice

And of course, now I really want to visit Canada even more than I did.

Very fun and enjoyable, this is the first of this authors books I have listened to/read. I can’t wait to listen to others that are available.

Enjoyable little listen

Sweet tribute by a native to the country he loves. I enjoyed learning a little bit more about my neighbors to the north. I’ve no doubt that Canada is awesome.

Good sentiment w/a few thought-provoking lines but

Good sentiment w/a few thought-provoking lines but I think it would've benefited from a professional narrator. I'm unsure if it was an accent, lisp, or just his manner of speaking, but the author/narrator had a tendency to quickly slur his words together, which made some parts of the story a bit unintelligible so that I had to rewind and listen again to get the exact meaning he was trying to convey.

It was obvious in the beginning of the book that Pasricha was stringing adjectives attempting to ensnare the reader's senses; when done well, this is a neat truck which can evoke memory and draw the reader into the literary journey...but here it felt ham-handed and I enjoyed the book much more when he primarily stopped the practice in the meat of the narrative.

Still, I don't regret getting this book. It's a quick read and I enjoyed Pasricha's "Kumbaya" cultural-togetherness ideals, especially when so many others in current international forums seem to do all they can to magnify divisiveness.

Yes, It Is!

This story touches on some of what makes CANADA so great, and there is SO MUCH MORE. Canada, the second largest country in the world (Russia being the largest), is full of beauty and diversity.
Well performed.
