I found the story and characters interesting and engaging. I would have rated the book much higher if it had been narrated by someone other than the author. Ms. Morrison wove an interesting story but her narration was monotone and she sounded bored. It was often difficult to hear or understand what she was saying. I will confine my future adventures into Toni Morrison's work will be in a physical book or e-book - especially if she chooses to narrate her own work again.
I could only tolerate about 30 minutes before I wanted to fall asleep with the narrator's monitone voice. This is the second Twain work I've listened to and both seem to have this same narrator. I will pick up the story to read elsewhere. Definitely NOT an audible best.
The story was a typical Twain tale, but it was difficult to tell with the narration. A young child could have done better. His pronunciations were incorrect, pauses in the wrong places and narration was devoid of any emotion. I would steer clear of the audio version and read the paper or e book version.
The review piqued my interest into listenin, but the story and characters were flat and boring. The narration was good and I plodded through to the end...but was grateful when the ridiculous plot came to an end.
A Jo Nesbo book or some historical fiction novel.
All of them! There was nothing redeeming about the story.
