I thought of quitting due to the poor quality of the recording, but I'm so glad I didn't. If you like Margaret Atwood's other books, you should definitely check this out; there are more plot threads and surprises than usual.
The storytelling was captivating, the actor captured the tone and attitude of the main character beautifully with all the complexity, mystery, irony and pride of the character, The story itself was compelling, in the telling of an elusive truth remembered, slipping easily in and out of past and present. it is rich in descriptive detail with out becoming bogged down in it. this book ranks among my all time favorites, up there with Tolstoy. There was some trouble in the middle of the audio with a squeaking background noise, however, i contacted the tech people at audible who helped me resolve this. This book is not to be passed up due to a little squeaking. Margaret Atwood can tell an intricate story from a woman's perspective like no other. its worth listening to again, and again.
Yes! The narration was fantastic! I almost returned this because of the hissing, but I am SO HAPPY I didn't. It eventually went away or became part of the ambiance of this beautifully written book. The story was very good, as was the story within the story. One of my favorite audio books!
This was my first Margot Dionne audio book, but I would definitely listen to her again. She has a very pleasant voice that was perfect for the main character and did a seamless job transitioning between characters. I am torn between purchasing another book by Margaret Atwood or looking for a book narrated by Margot Dionne.
Don't give up because of the hissing - it will fade away!
This book might appeal to people who like dystopia.
I was bored by the dystopian story told by one of the characters, which took up too much of the book, about an alternate reality, fantasy about nothing.
It was okay, I was put off by the dystopian fantasy.
All of the dystopian story,
I was interested in the elderly character reviewing her life at the end.
It's is one of my favorite books, the story is captivating, and keeps you interested all the way through, you don't want to stop listening because something new is around the corner. It's a book you don't want to end even if you know the end is coming.
This book rambles on without any direction! Boring as a thriller!
Margot Dionne's performance was fine.
Mostly confusion and boredom
