not Frederick Davidson
The narrator's voice was almost farcically sneering and comically upper-crust. But it wasn't meant to be a satire.
I have no idea.
The writing was horrendous, one narration annoying and sometimes offensive. Sometimes I laughed at how bad it was though.
I really enjoyed this book as an accompaniment to running and working around the house. It's not great literature, but the characters are finely realised, the writing is good, the plot good enough, and the narration is nuanced yet unobtrusive.
Absolutely entranced for most of it. Could have used more editing at end. But still highly recommend if for good storytelling, a meditation on nature, desire, and domesticity vs the wild.
It started so well with nuanced portraits of people stuck in time and class but turned into an insufferable, repetitive, boring soap opera.
I would have liked this better if I had not been so busy. It's kind of wonderful, but you have to be in a somewhat meditative state to appreciate it, and my state has been generally frantic. I think I will listen to it again though.
I don't like romance novels, and that's what this is, even though it's billed as a thriller. If romance rather than whodunnits are your guilty pleasure, you might like it.
Probably not. But I'm still thinking about the characters.
The moral ambiguity and complexity of the characters.
Great voice. Evoked a sense of place.
I don't understand this question.
I don't know. I have not read the print version. Sorry.
It would complement The Warmth of Other Suns.
Great and expressive voices and a good ear for character and dialect.
Lots---it is in many ways a book of moving moments. But I actually think that could be interpreted as a weakness. I enjoyed it a lot though. It made my long runs great!
