The main character in this book has no redeeming characteristics. Nor do any of the rest of the well under developed characters. Not a fan.
Not really. It was difficult to stay focused after all of the characters were introduced.
Probably not because this one was not what I expected.
It would depend on the book. But he reads fast and has a very pronounced British accent/
Don't know. Seemed to move slowly and never finished it.
This book was hard to stick with. Difficult to listen to the the narrator, so monotone and uninteresting. Also, things were introduced but then the back stories would take you in an entirely different direction. Maybe the author's intent but not enough there to keep one's interest.
After the first few chapters I thought this would be a good book. The story started to become many. By the end of the book the plots were not only about Clare but women's suffarage, plight of immigrants in the early 1900's, birth of unions, Tiffany glass works, Louis Comfort Tiffany, a love story, personal tragedy, not to mention the tedious cutting, selecting and placing of every shard of glass. There was just too much to call it one story. I finished because the narration was good and I paid for it.
Can't really say there was any humor here as some have said. Kept waiting for a character, any character to display some redeeming quality. But every time a new character was introduced, they seemed to be more pathetic than the previous one. The plot was shallow at best, the performance was so-so, and I was glad when it was over.
Could not wait to listen to more. The story never left you wanting for more. It just kept getting better as it went on. The narration was impeccable and spot on. Highly recommended.
