    How long does it take to fall in love? For twenty years, Laura has been a good wife and a good mother. She's supported her husband through redundancy, she's worried about her son, she's encouraged her daughter. She's stopped thinking about all the places she'd like to go and all the books she'd like to talk about. She's not unhappy, exactly. She's not that self-indulgent. As anyone would tell you, Laura is wonderfully constant, caring, selfless.

    Jane Deacon says: "plodding and predictable"
    "This narrator is on a tight schedule"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    another narrator, another writer?


    What was most disappointing about Douglas Kennedy’s story?

    plot


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    not a pause anywhere.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    kept me distracted on the bus


    Any additional comments?

    It's probably just the narration
