I never write reviews but The Good House was simply terrific. Mary Beth Hurt was the perfect Hildy Good; her character was really well-developed and the alcoholism angle fascinating. I was absolutely transported to the insulated world of Wendover. Perfect listen!
Perhaps someone who isn't familiar with good post apocalyptic stories ie, The Road. And interestingly enough, those characters were never even given names. But I cared about them, unlike the characters in Station 11.
I did not connect with the characters at all. They simply were not drawn well enough for me to care about whether they lived or died. And the audio format did not lend itself well to me rereading to check on the character's relationships with each other. The author did introduce some intriguing ideas, like the museum, which were not fully developed.
The narrator's performance was adequate. It was the story that I didn't like.
I love almost all post apocalyptic stories; I didn't stop listening because I continued to hope the story was going to become more engaging.
