I could not get into this book. I found the start of the book cluttered with too many characters that was hard to keep straight throughout the book. I had to keep asking, which one was this again? I think the writer could have had a good story but unfortunately the first 7 chapters barely mentioned the story line with the outcome of taking the life of the child. I read this book in my book club and of the five of us in the club, all of us felt the same way.
Yes, I felt like I was a fly on the wall watching this family move through life.
The subtle jokes were hilarious.
She did a great job with the male voices.
I thought the length was fine.
The story has a lot of characters to keep straight and this is what made it more difficult to listen too. I also would have enjoyed going back over some the of jokes to laugh again.
The subject matter could have been more clearly defined. The descriptions and story matter were repulsive.
