Perhaps more scholarly, unemotional readers.
Actually his British accent made the story seem even more impersonal
I was intrigued by the Netsuke and thought the story could have been told in a much more interesting fashion. I would have scraped so much I don't know where to begin...
There was little to relate to, no one to root for and a jagged story line to follow. The author veered so often into unnecessary territory it angered me! I found myself thinking this story could have been great - his portrayal of the characters made them so removed and aloof from others and their heritage. I wanted to like the characters and wanted to know more about how they felt! Although there was a great deal of Jewish history that I was unaware of and sickened by, it didn't do enough for me to keep me engaged. I was ashamed of these Jews who tried so hard to become Austrians and disavow themselves of their Jewishness - I couldn't understand them! The author writes well but with little humanity!
Incredible series - I can hardly wait for Day 3! The story is fabulous, the narrator is perfect...amazing book.
The basic story line was ridiculous consisting of a bunch of hyperbolic, melodramatic, predictably written ridiculous scenes strung together and punctuated by unnecessarily crude comments.
Really? Why would I?
Perhaps, it's not his fault Benioff wrote a dumb book.
It's not worth my time...
I tried reading this book long ago and could never finish. Somehow I thought having it read to me would make a difference
It was too self-involved and truly not "about" her girls.
Her performance was fine ~ she needs a better, less self-righteous story to read.
Most of the scenes about the author and demanded more about "her girls!"
The first few chapters were very misleading. It was not a story about the girls who came to her house to read ~ nor was it about Lolita. Additionally, how can anyone find anything good about Lolita's relationship with "captor?"
