I had to stop listening almost halfway through when I realized that I didn't care what happens to the main character any longer. she was so self absorbed and whiny, I just couldn't stand to hear any more of her thoughts.
An enjoyable read, very complex characters, not as entertaining as I desired the story to be.
So well written, the storyline and main character draws you in immediately. This is character you care for.
Fun story, especially if you are an "Amazing Race" fan, like myself. Not a storyline or characters that will stay with you, but it was enjoyable.
Enjoyed the storyline and the characters, loved the insight into a world I would never have access to. Is there anything that Steve Martin can't do?
Fabulous story, worthy of all of the great reviews and 'word of mouth' recommendations by friends. The current storyline and characters are interesting, and the back story is hard, but so well written.
Was dubious about this storyline at first, I normally do not read/listen to fantasy books, but this story was fantastical and expertly read. The reader was fabulous and lent each character their own special voice.
For this to be a book that won so much critical praise, it just wasn't my cup of tea. I enjoy books with likeable characters, didn't find too many here...
Well written story and the main character is someone to like. Can't give too much of a review as the listener needs to follow the storyline and absorb the information as the author lays it out.
No one can write about people like Anita Shreve. These characters and this storyline has stayed with me, enjoyed the experience of listening to this book.
