    After disgracing themselves at a high society New Year's Eve party in Philadelphia in 1944, Madeline Hyde and her husband, Ellis, are cut off financially by his father, a former army colonel who is already ashamed of his son’s inability to serve in the war. Ellis and his best friend, Hank, decide that the only way to regain the colonel's favor is to succeed where the colonel very publicly failed - by hunting down the famous Loch Ness monster.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I waited a long time for this book. "Water for Elephants" is still one of my all-time favorites. I'm so disappointed to write that I tried to listen to this book, but there must be something wrong with the Audible quality or the narrator's voice. I tried different speeds, but it's still like listening to fingernails on a chalkboard. I'm going to try reading this one.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The voice is intolerable to me. Not sure if it's a quality issue or the actual voice, but I just cannot listen to it.

    Despite having jobs and men that they love, each knows that something is missing: the closeness that once sustained them. Carmen is a successful actress in New York, engaged to be married, but misses her friends. Lena finds solace in her art, teaching in Rhode Island, but still thinks of Kostos and the road she didn’t take. Bridget lives with her longtime boyfriend, Eric, in San Francisco, and though a part of her wants to settle down, a bigger part can’t seem to shed her old restlessness. Then Tibby reaches out to bridge the distance, sending the others plane tickets for a reunion....

    Penny says: "Depressing"
    "Slogging through sorrow"
    Overall

    I'm so sad for these girls. They seem so depressed and miserable. I'm not finished yet, but I don't think I can bring myself to get through another minute of listening...it's like slogging through a bog filled with sorrow and depression.
