I really liked this book! The opening chapters made it seems like a murder mystery but it was soooo much more than that! It traces a random path over continents and time that makes you realize that people do things for strange reasons. While I thought some things were unbelieveable the more and more Mankell blended the story I found myself getting into it! loved it!
The story was just strange and while it was funny at times overall I didn't get the point. This family is totally dysfunctional and the mom and dad do everything for art but their actions are unbelievable; I didn't want to listen to the second part but I figured I had already invested so much time it had to get better. I was wrong!
Disappointment. I wish I used my credit to buy something else
Even though this book was really good I don't think I'ld listen again because it was soooo intense and super long! Sometimes it went off on a tangent and I forgot how the subsection was connected. But it wasn't just about the flu, I learned so much about the H1N1 strain, virology and pandemics. It's a bit scary too when you learn about what actually happened and how it was spread!
