The story line got better eventually and then went over the top again
It was over acted and that could have been the writing too. Too stereotypical in the character development. Characters felt like characters not people.
I am very interested in the topic. However it feels like a textbook or technical journal rather than a story or work of fiction. I haven't gotten very far, but that says a lot I gobble up books when they're good.
I have no connections to the characters. I have read quite a bit but it is painful and I look forward to falling asleep through it. I don't care enough about the characters to find out what happens next.And the narration isn't helping.
Amazing writing and narration. I quickly went out and found another book. I git stuck on the beginning and understanding the past and the now. You don't need to focus that hard, it will be reexplained (briefly). A great story.
I don't care about the characters and the voices are grinding on my nerves. It may appeal to other I though it was another Big Chill. It's not.
I enjoyed the story and perspective of the story teller. It was easy to follow and a pace that made you want to keep listening.
It took a while to get into it. It was hard keeping track of characters. That's often due to my multi-tasking. I stuck with it and enjoyed the story.
I enjoyed it and it didn't demand my complete concentration so it served it's purpose. I liked it well enough to get the next in the series. However the narrator of the next one was different and i couldn't get my head around the fact it was the same character. I wasn't thrilled with the accent of the first narrator but I lived through it and the switch just threw me.
I hung in there and listened to the whole story. It was so confusing at first listening to the past and present 19th wives but I got it after a while. This si a completely new topic for me so I had the fascination of something new. It is a long story and I think I may have missed big chunks and didn't care enough to go back. The story was very interesting.
Its like the knock knock joke about the banana, until they finally say orange. The story is great at first and the characters seem like they will be interesting but it becomes a broken record, the characters are very one dimensional and what was funny in the beginning is becoming tedious as I continue to listen. Two thirds of the way in I realized there seem to be no story, or climax are anything interesting beyond the beginning fascination with learning about new characters. I had high hopes after having numerous disappointments. But alas it was another let down.
There is nothing I can find to keep me listening. The characters are annoying and so far the story is not plausible. I didn't expect it to me a Young Adult novel and that is not a genre I have found I want to read any more of. The narration is equally annoying.
