It wasn't the reader or anything - it was just that I had fairly high expectations for the book as it is such a classic. I found the characters for the most part fairly irritating and I honestly could relate to none of them. It is a book that I think would have benefited from being read on my eReader as there were many words that are no longer in common usage (as well a numerous geological references).
No - I enjoyed it the first time but it's not as if I feel I would gain better insight the next time. I felt the story was easy to follow and so lended itself well to an audio book.
Yes - as a departure from my sci-fi reading this book was a nice change of pace.
I've never listened to Oliver Whyman before but I enjoyed his characterizations.
Yes probably just to see if I enjoy it as much the second time.
It totally caught me off guard. It is not my usual genre and I picked it because of the reader and I thought Katherine Kellgren did a stellar job of the book and I will definitely be looking for more of her work.
My motivation for purchasing this book was to pass the time on a 5 hour drive to a conference. Not only did it keep me awake for the drive - I was waiting for breaks so that I could continue listening and was exited for the drive home so I could hear more of the story.
I'm just concerned that possibly it will be hard to live up to the expectations for audio books after starting with this one hahaha.
