I was so thrilled to read something else by Emma Donoghue, having listened to "Room", which was a superb and narration. This was the only Audible book I have quit 2/3 the way through. It was predictable, read in too cutesy an irish accent at times, and nothing made you particularly like the characters or be interested in the denouement of their love story. This belongs on trashy romance novel shelves, not in a serious library. I hope this represents early efforts for Ms. Donoghue and that her future writing will be more in line with "Room".
