The twist of the new protagonist opposed to when we were first introduced to all the characters in the first book.
Grandville character... I almost laughed ever time he said something!
Nothing, he was great.
Chicago! Seems like a real gentle man that tries to do right by everyone.
Can't wait for the sequel!
Great, read it!
I was a little hesitant at first when I read the summary because of the setting era of the book, but the authors descriptive details and ability to be a great storyteller kept me fully engaged!
Another narrator and more realistic reactions to certain situations of the characters. The narrator did not do the book justice at all. Although I hated the the readers voice and the way she changed her voice to read for each character made it even harder to deal with it but the story held my interest to bear through it.
A little more realism to some of the 3 ladies situations....such as the reaction of the long term boyfriend when she didn't agree to marry him because of her mother.... The whole "he said through clenched teeth" etc and the way the narrator played it out was just awful. The character was represented in a different light and all if a sudden they he kept changing like Dr Jeckle and Mr. Hyde because of the way it was presented to us by the performance of the narrator
Yes, Yes, Yes!
This story line is okay but the recording is terrible. Sounds like this was a low budget recording that was recorded out of someone's home. As the author/reader reads the story she starts and stops in some places and you can hear how the recording stops and starts. The reading of the story did not have a good flow to it at all. An okay story but the reading of the book took a lot from it, because the concentration was toward the awful reading at times more the story itself.
I had this book downloaded for about 3 months until I could bring myself to continue to listen to the narrator. The book is a very good book but the narration of this book was poor. The sound is bad and it sounds like the narrator is in a hollow room. The narrator herself is reading like when you are in school and the teacher asks someone to read the next paragraph. Yeah, that bad! There is hardly any transition from one character to the next. The reading is very monotone and it is read as if there are no
punctuation in the text.....one sentence into another...and another. Sometimes the narrator stumbles on words. I highly recommend the book because it is a good read but not the audio recording.
