It is a testament to Julie Orringer's writing skill that I could endure the what seemed like 100 hours of yammering. The narrator was one of the worst I've heard. He droned on in a portentious voice and seemed to have no ability to provide different personas for the individual characters. His pronunciation of French words, even to my tin ear, was painful. I think this is a book better read than heard.
The story was compelling, the narration brilliant and I can't wait to listen to another Tana French. As a child of a Dublin woman, the characters seemed authentic to me and the dialogue spot on. I've listened to more than 40 audible books, and this is one of the best.
