There are points where I was hoping the story would move a little faster, but for the most I found this incredible compelling listening! My only real complaint is the weird chimes and random sounds at the end of certain passages and chapters. It completely threw me out of the story whenever they happened... I've never encountered anything like it in an audio book before, very strange.
Wow - this one is good. Kathy Bates is excellent as narrator - soooo good. The story is so much more than the movie. There is more character developement of main characters, more backstory and more things that happen that are crazy! It's so well written and well read.
