Captivating and nostalgic.,
This review is from: Stories from a Lifetime (Paperback)
Review by Stephanie: As a fan of memoirs, I enjoyed reading Aaron's short story collection that spans the soaring highs and times of his eight decades. Each of the stories are captivating and nostalgic in their own familiar way, and each of them has something to say about the human life.
I had trouble getting into it (and finishing it) because the style of writing, while flowy in almost a poetic way, is often redundant and confusing. I love the idea of how life is described via short stories, but the narrative voice just isn't for me. Aaron has a detailed knack of explaining occurrences, but nothing is particularly gripping or profound.
The book as a whole, is an interesting concept, so I am not completely disappointed by this one. Aaron is profound with memories and spins a lifetime of stories that captures his wise, loved voice.
