No the plot did not keep me on the edge of my seat, I don't believe that this was the aim of the author. Instead she took us on a slow and deeply moving journey as the main character fought for her right to live as she did, her ability to manage the inner voices and her external struggle to build a house on her own. I loved this story but not because it kept me on the edge of my seat but rather because it was well paced, interesting with likeable and well developed characters.
I enjoyed listening to the book as the reader used well intentioned expression in his voice. He had excellent pronunciation of the French names and he understood the meaning of the book well.
The explosion in the hospital and the lead character's inability to change the outcome. It was both touching and well developed. The lead character was a complex, intelligent man who was both conventional and unconventional in his approach to sorting out this very personal situation.
