There was plenty of humor to offset the seriousness.
The main character was, of course, my favorite. She was funny and down to earth. Listening to her struggle while she kept her sense of humor was entertaining. Ms. Harper can make her characters shine.
When listening to the book, you believe that the reader is the main character. Some times when I read rather than listen I might not put the same spin on the dialog as Ms. Ronconi does.
I laughed a lot.
Thoroughly enjoyed the book. Have gotten other Harper books since listening to this one.
As a book to read, yes. As a book on tape, no. The story is fine, but not the narration.
Her inflection was irritating, for instance, she would emphasize the wrong word in a sentence. Also, if I set the volume for the main character's voice, I could not hear the other characters' voices. I was constantly having to change the volume depending on which character was speaking. Since I listen to my books as I travel, it was irritating.
Would probably read a follow-up.
I don't think that too many readers will like this ending. I am not sure I will even read the next book. Disappointed.
