My mind kept wandering off as I listened to the boring storyline that took forever to get off the ground. And the narrator - horrible! He over-enunciates words and speaks with a nasally voice that is very irritating and distracting. Don't waste your time (or your credits) on this flop.
The Interestings is a wonderful book. I fell in love with the characters and miss them terribly now that I have finished the story. I found myself constantly checking my chapter number, fearful of how close to the end I was getting. You meet a set of 5 teenagers the day they all meet at a summer camp and follow their lives all the way into adulthood. They are good but flawed people - just like most people in the real world.
My only complaint is the narrator. I have listened to hundreds of audio books, and this is the first one for which I had to slow down the narration speed in order to keep up. Even at a slower speed, the voices aren't distorted and I wasn't at all distracted by the pace. Do buy this book. It's absolutely enchanting.
Buy this book right now. You will love it I'm certain. I quickly became attached to the characters and the connection that kept bringing them back together over 20 years, a love that only happens when people are made for each other - soul mates. I will keep them with me long after I've forgotten the details of the story. Dex and Em. Em and Dex.
