A better writer.
Simplistic romance novel. Not a great mystery.
I think the writing is the problem, so the narrator didn't have much to work with.
I didn't finish it. It bored me.
I wish there were a way to screen out romance books.
If you know nothing at all about ancient history and like a slow paced, laboriously academic lecture style, this is a decent intro.
I don't like this canned approach to subjects, so I doubt I will try any more of these. /found the applause noise and loooong introductions to content tedious. Prefer well written books instead.
So basic as to be pretty boring if you've studied any archaeology, prehistory, or ancient history.
I love Erdrich's writing. This is clearly not for adults, but for chidlren. I didn't finish it. Got too explanatory and simple.
Near the top.
The morally agonizing moment when Bendrix reads Sarah's entry about why she had to give him up. It is one of the most emotionally complex moments in any novel, and Firth's understated reading made it perfect and powerful.
Yes. And relisten to.
Firth managed to disappear into the story, so that I cannot separate the two in my memory anymore. I've read other Bellow books, but the reading made this one especially memorable.
