I really wanted to like this, struggling through the recording until part-way through the 2nd part. But this book listened/read like a book for a second grader. There was way too much unintersting detail as the story slowly crawled along. The premise was much more interesting than the reality. A painful experience.
Overall good - not great. Started slow, liked the late middle to ending much more than most of the beginning. Was not a fan of the narrator.
This book is not for middle aged or younger. I should have listened to all the bad reviews. This is definately not worth your credit. Go borrow the printed book at your local library, and you will see how utterly betty white dumb this book is... only worse x 100%.
I cannot believe this is the same author that wrote Fried Green Tomatoes. This book was just awful. The story was boring and the narration was flat.
This book was written and read by a southern grandmother for old ladies. Absolutely nothing happened in the first hour of listening - we met a couple old southern belles who now feel insecure about their age, weight and usefulness. If I want that, I can call my mother! Don't bother with this book.
Bewildered on the good reviews
Bewildered that it was published
The worst most annoying book I ever listened to
Wish I could put in negative stars
Sadly, I won't be finishing this book because of language choice. I don't feel that it is acceptable to take our Saviour's name in vain and finishing this book, I feel would be hypocritical. Not only is it unfortunate, but so unnecessary. Why books, especially audio books, do not indicate offensive language is a mystery to me.
