This is just too dry, and I am not much interested in the scholarly context. Where's the Twain?
Not enough Twain; too much commentary about how the story was put together. Waiting forever for Twain's actual story.
No. I liked the narrator, no problem there.
After hour about 2 hours of this, I don't care about any of the characters, and I just want it to stop. I have listened to 24 Audible books per year for many years now. It is unusual for me to ditch one, but I am going to quit this one.
I loved the first half of this book, but it lost steam toward the end. A key relationship -- Charlotte and her mother -- is left hanging. Her mother demands the truth. Charlotte will have to grapple with this, but the writer never returns to it. Another problem is the reader's over-acting. He shouts for pages at at time, making it hard to continue listening -- poor dramatic development. The abridged audiobook might be a better choice.
