Recommended by Audible and will never accept another recommendation from them because of this. Very boring, very long-winded. I skipped several areas and when I would go to listen again, it was talking about the same scene.
Tell us about yourself!
I watched the movie after listening to the book. The movie is not bad, but the book is a total bore.
Muller was too hard to hear and discern what was happening. Had to "rewind" a few times, but finally gave up and "fast forwarded" instead. Think possibly another narrator would have brought some needed life to this book. I couldn't mark no stars for performance, but that would be my choice.
Usually I try to stay with a book... eventually I get hooked in. I couldn't bare the cadence, the lack of energy... the tone. Even though the reader is one of my all time favorites... I finally bagged it.
It is very rare for me to want to put down a book before I finish it, but this one almost made me do it! Stiff, one-dimensional charactors, no plot to speak of, and descriptions and scenery so overdone that you find yourself thinking "enough already!!" One of the worst books I have ever read, and I read a LOT!
