The synopsis of this story isn't accurate. The stories are supposed to revolve around a desk that exerts a power over those who possess it or have given it away. The first story did but I listened for several chapters on the next one and nowhere was there a mention of the desk. The same goes for the next story. I stopped listening to the second and third stories because they made no sense and weren't interesting. I couldn't bring myself to listen to anymore. The writer should have made the connetion to the desk at the beginning of each story after the first.
The Hunger Games
The three narrator's I listened too did a great job with their characters.
I'm still shaking my head after listening to most of the second story. It nonsensible.
Stimulated alot of discussion at book club, we all hated it. Spoiler.... We determined that the contents of the locked drawer was a metaphor for the whole book...empty
Yes. Literary fiction. No plot, no dialog, no read
Wasn't that enough?
Although the author has said she does not write with a plan for the story, each section is beautifully written and read. Her images jump out and make you want to hear them again. This audiobook is worth taking the time to really listen to Krause's words.
I recommend it. The book was unusual and creative. I think it fell a step short of connecting the stories. I'm going to listen to it again, something I don't normally do, to see if I missed something. I think it's a good book for a book club as it should elicit get great discussions.
