The first hour and thirty-nine minutes of this book is a painfully boring introduction by the author, just rambling on about his life and how he came across a scarlet letter while working in a customs house and decided to write a story about it. I kept listening because I figured the intro wouldn't be very long, but I was wrong. The only valuable piece of info from the intro is that the book is based on a true story. (It would have taken him the equivalent of 3 minutes to explain that!) Do yourself a favor and skip ahead! The story was OK, but not as good as I had hoped. (The intro may have left a bad taste in my mouth.)
