I wish T.C. would get out of his maudlin state. I keep reading his books, hoping to find some of the funny dark side of life, like "Drop City," but I guess he is stuck in the dark absurd state. Anyway, it was an okay read and the narrator was good.
This book was a pleasure to listen to even though at times it was redundant. The storyline did plod along but it was interesting right up until the end, and then the Epilogue!
Amazing how an epilogue could twist such a story.
This is a wonderful fairy tale in a novel setting. I really enjoyed it and hope you will too.
I really liked all the twists and turns in the story line.
Another fascinating story by Jodi Picoult. The narration was great too. I usually don't like many different readers, but the story tellers were seamless.
I haven't seen the TV series, so my review is based on the book. It was well narrated, and I liked the characters. The reality of her experience seemed more mild than one would imagine prison life to be, so I wasn't quite convinced of the whole experience. It is an interesting book and I'm glad I listened.
I think that this book, read by the author was quite exquisite.
The characters were bright and individual. Each carried their own merit.
No, but I will.
This book produced many reactions, from laughing to crying.
You would be missing out on a wonderful read if you choose not to listen to it.
No. It would be better to read not to listen to.
It had too many email subtitles.
Yes. She was a good narrator.
Not quite the type of book I usually go for. It seemed a little more geared toward a younger audience. Maybe 17-25 ish?
No. It seemed rather trite to me.
Not! We need interesting TV
I could see how some may think this book is interesting, but I found I couldn't wait for it to be over. I didn't ask for my credit back though, so it did have some merit.
I didn't finish the book. I am going to read it instead of having a tedious speaker reading to me.
I don't know who would enjoy this book.
It was very repetitive. I knew I could not finish it from the start. I listened to 10 hours, should I try to finish it?
Most of the audio books produced by Blackstone Audio that I have listened to are great, and this one is no exception. The narration by Carrington MacDuffe wove a tale of life, simple and complex, beautifully sad and engaging. I sometimes had to wonder how a woman so large could keep her chin up, but this is where fiction can overcome life. I am glad I listened, and I am inspired to read the book. I hope the author is working on another piece.
