Kind of lame. Kept my attention but not as much fun as previous 5 books. But I'm hooked, on to book 7, can't stop now!
I got through part 1, about 12 chapters. I kept waiting to engage with or relate to the character, but it just didn't happen for me. I did not like the narration, did not get swept up in the tale even though i really wanted to. It was too painful to invest any more time in it. Very disappointed!
This book is a classic for a reason. It is wonderful and the characters are delicious, so much more verbal than we are today. But the narration, although professional in ability to express excitement or a character's personality, was a bit overdone with Mrs. Bennett It was like a dude in drag trying to imitate a shrill obnoxious woman. It was distracting and irritating. I would not buy books again that she is narrating
this is the closest I know of Steven King coming to what he created in THE STAND but he doesn't quite get there. Interesting characters but they are not that real or interesting. In audio form anyway, it is sometimes hard to keep track of the characters (but not impossible). I finished the book and enjoyed the story, but it wasn't a memorable book.
