Having listening to over 800 books over the last 19 years, this is the first time I have written a review....This book was over touted and a big fat disappointment. I wonder what the writer really wrote and what the editor published. It did not bring a smile to my face, let alone a laugh. The narrator was dull at best and did not bring the characters any life. I was previewing for my book club and it will get a NO!
Full of cliches, could not warm up to any of the characters...no wonder her husband left the family. I was not the least intrigued and had to make myself finish.
Story was dull
I would have added, not taken away, as it was down right boring.
wish I had not wasted a credit. I was looking for a new author to follow, did not find it here.
When I have to bribe myself to listen to a book, I know I am in trouble. I have to care for at least one character in a book...not this one! I have listened to over 600 books since 1990 (yes I started with cassettes) and I have given very few 1 stars...if there was 1/2 star or 0 I would not waste a full star on this stinker.
I should realize by now that just because Oprah liked it, does not mean I will find enjoyment. Spend your time and money on the new Ken Follett novel, Fall of Giants!
