I'm a nurse practitioner that loves to let my imagination run when listening to books. Takes me forever to read, so I love listening!
Better plot. Or at least having one.
Not completely. I hope that this is just a personal dislike, and not a broad dislike of fiction in this genre.
The reader was about the only thing that kept me interested. He might deserve a 4 star rating, but it is difficult for me to arrive at 4 stars in a book that I did not enjoy.
I cannot understand why this is considered a classic.
I didn't like it much after a 30-year hiatus. Didn't like any of the characters or really care when the major character died. Much ado about nothing. I was also very disturbed with the apparent easy acceptance of violence towards women. I can't really accept that it is something to do with an era. Of course the writing is extremely lyrical and beautifully put together.
