The narrator grated on me. I think I might have stayed with this book if I had read it rather than listened to it. Oftentimes, I cant' get into a book until mid-point (a la Gone Girl) and then the story grabs me and I'm glad that I persevered. This audiobook was a complete waste of time. "14", by Peter Clunes was next on the list, so I pulled the plug, so to speak, to move on to that book and I'm soooooo glad I did.From now on I will make note of the narrator and if it is Katherine Kellgren, I will not buy the book.
She was attempting a haughty East Coast upper-class snobbiness in her tone of voice and it was very fake to me -- like fingernails on a chalkboard. Like very bad acting. I could not concentrate on the story line, because I could not get past the narrating.
I didn't listen to enough of the book to answer this intelligently.
Wonderful character development. I loved and then despised and then loved again each character in turn. Isn't that how real life works? The author captured that so well. I miss Connie. How is she? Is Douglas OK? And Albie??? I want more of these people. The narrator (bad word!) the performer was outstanding!!!!
I can't rate the story because I do not understand what is happening. I am going to have o read this book.
Not enough information to make a judgment.
I believe a different performer. She was overly dramatic for my taste and the major reason for pulling the plug on this book. The dialogue was witty, but she overplayed it.
Me Before You.
It would be unfair to answer this question, as I did not get far enough into the story to render a just opinion.
Slow and boring. I could not keep my attention on the story. I finally decided that I did not have to torture myself and finish it.
Too much detail about computers and the workings of such that slowed the story down and confused me.
I got as far as the description of the software program that replicates boobs and I decided that I had had it and I quit. Was this book written for 13-year old computer geeks?
I will definitely listen to this book again. The narrator is outstanding. He performs rather than reads the books and his performance enhances the story.
Hank was my favorite because of his wit and his laid-back outlook on life. I always fall in love with the lead character in all of Richard Russo's books.
I was laughing out loud in my car in when Hank was crouched in the ceiling of the conference room covered in dirt and wet pants eavesdropping on his peers discussing whether or not to allow his to retain his chair of the English department. Hilarious!@!!!
Noooooo. I wanted it to go on forever. I didn't want it to end.
