Before downloading it, I told myself I'd pace it out so I'd have a month worth of story... Ha. That totally didn't work :) Instead, I ended up listening to 5 of the 7 hours of it at once. Though it may not be an example of literary excellence, it's not bad either. I wasn't a huge fan of the narration, especially the woman's voice, but the story and plot were gripping enough to waste my Saturday for. Definitely worth a download.
After reading some excellent reviews of it, I was expecting a lot from this novel, yet it ended up being incredibly awful. Narration was bad, Ms. K. M. Guest attempted, in vain, to do a few too many accents. The characters were bland, boring, and utterly predictable. Even the plot couldn't save it, letting it spiral downward.
Sure, Partials may not be an instant classic, but it's undeniably brilliant. Intriguing characters, witty dialogue, and great plot. Honestly, I don't understand how people could have managed not to enjoy it :]
