Her announcement that she is retiring from writing?
Stop whining and dropping off on the end of her words like a lazy Valley-girl.
it taught me to always read reviews first and I enjoyed reading some of the other regretful reviews.
I'm sad for all of us.
I'm really surprised by some of the negative reviews of the narration. It took a little getting used to but, if you read fiction you need to be open to suspending your disbelief. I have a five year old boy. It took some time, but when you begin to understand the psychology of the situation, it begins to challenge your sense of how and why we understand the world as we do and makes sense. The beginning was pretty tough to listen to... in a good way.
When you find yourself responding audibly to a book (gasps, talking back, laughter, and crying) you know its good. Being a Northern male, I don't think reading this book would have had nearly the impact as it did with the wonderful readers in the audo production. The accents, dialogue and vocal subtleties were wonderful. Listening to this book has been the highlight of my Audible experience so far!
