Yes to Steven Crossley, no to Ford Maddox Ford
The lack of interest I felt in the characters.
I just didn't enjoy this book.
the suspense, the characters, everything.
It's too long for that, but a few binge sittings, yes.
Really liked the performance, with one exception. The actor totally misread one character--Evan Duffield. From the book it's clear that he's posh and snooty, yet this actor chose to give him, inexplicably , a working class accent. Huh?
I really wanted to like this book and it's solutions. But self-diagnosis/self-medicating is FAR too complicated. My head was reeling at the end. If the point of listening to this book is to make me feel like I'd have to go to this doctor myself to make head or tail of this cure, then it succeeded. It shouldn't be marketing itself as something you can just figure out.
It felt like the author was basing the book on a very specific easy to pinpoint downfall rather than trying to fight a whole lifestyle. Unless you only overeat one food--and only when you're aware that you're especially depressed this won't be of any use.
I'd cut the background music--it was annoying as Hell.
Maybe, because the book is terrific, but maybe not because the performance is terrible.
His ignorance of the subject matter is apparent in his routine mispronunciation of names and titles. Also, his performance is poor. Please get Mordden to read his own books!
