I didn't read the print version.
I love the characters - how real and believable they are.
She uses accents to give personality to the characters.
Anne Tyler books lend themselves well to audio books. Her characters feel so real when the books are read out loud.
Every character went on and on with their stories and opinions. There never seemed to be a point. I don't even know why it was called Outline. I fell asleep at the end and it is too boring to go back and listen to it.
The narrator was good but I started rolling my eyes at the female characters . I won't give away the plot but there was a point where I just didn't like any of the females and I wondered how this guy could possibly be around so many unbalanced women. I felt kind of annoyed at the end.
Stupid story, poorly written and so poorly narrated, it was almost impossible to listen to. I would suggest the girl who narrated should find something that doesn't involve acting or reading aloud and the author should not give up his day job
I have read all of his work and this is the first time I was bored, indifferent about the characters and just thought the story was lame. Very disappointing. Has he finally run out of interesting ideas? Even if you are an avid fan, I wouldn't bother with this one.
I found the male narrator's voice kind of annoying, but the story was good and it hit a nerve with me when it took an unexpected turn in the storyline. However, the ending felt like he just didn't know how to end it. It was disappointing and I was left feeling like the story was left hanging. As a writer myself, I can think of 10 different endings that would have been better.
