I must have read this book in high school; probably didn't appreciate it much as an assignment. The story line is great. Eliot's turns of phrase and philosophizing are charming. But what makes this a great listen, is the narration. Woolf gives a perfect rendering of different characters and accents without being obtrusive.His warm gravelly voice and measure cadence are perfect while falling asleep, but you can't because the story keeps you captivated.
maybe after a long time
it's going to be a while
average to good
about 2/3 of it
Be prepared for long discussions of a Dad abusing his little girl. Not scary in the least, just disgusting. I fast forwarded most of the second half of the book hoping for Stephen King chills, but only found shudders. One of the only audible books I've ever returned.
