Barbara Kingsolver is a master storyteller and has written a fine story of one woman's growth and search to find a way out of her stifled life in a small town. As always with her novels there are many layers and you learn something new. Barbara is also an excellent narrator, I always enjoy her voice and characters. Well worth a listen.
The good thing about this audiobook is at 22 hours long it mildy entertained me through a few days of tedious work. The bad thing is the extremely corny dialogue. It was like the melodramatic conversations in Days of Our Lives. I laughed out loud several times at the constant references to "with all my heart" and "to my very soul". The parts I enjoyed were the insights into the movie star lifestyle though I don't know how accurate they may be. The narrator does a good job with the very clunky conversations.
This is a thrilling and intriguing story with lots of humor and action. A very entertaining listen.
