I LOVE Ann Patchett, but this novel left me disappointed. Ann Patchett has a way of making her characters completely relatable. Even though they could not be less similar to you, you find yourself completely invested in him/her. I could not relate to the main character in this book, however. Instead, I came to despise her. I was also disappointed in the ending -- or lack there of. Too bad.
Krakauer is one of my favorite non-fiction writers so I didn't even bother to read the reviews or summary of this book, I don't regret my purchase in the least. I found his chronicle of the Mormon faith to be fascinating, frustrating and thought provoking all at once.
Yes. The storyline. It was an intriguing topic with a lot of potential but very anticlimactic.
Probably not. Her story was engaging in that you thought it was building up to something...but it wasn't. kKnd of a let down. Probably indicative of her other work.
Yes. They are good performers.
Find another book to listen to...
Not overly impressed.
