Not suspemsful, as I was expecting, but boring in many parts. I fell asleep during the last hour and don't even care enough to go back and re-listen to the ending.
I made no connection with these characters - the plot was completely predictable and the narrators breathy pronunciation at the end of every sentence was so distracting it was annoying. I skipped ahead so many times just to say I finished it!
This will always be one of my favorite books. Loved the different readers for each character, which really connects you emotionally with each of them. I couldn't stop listening to it. The ending was so unexpected - it is a book you have to discuss when you have finished. Make sure you listen to this one!
I am a Stephen King fan from way back, but this was a complete disappointment. I couldn't wait for the book to be over....there seemed to be no point to the story at times. Occasionally another voice would be inserted to utter a narrative sentence and it was distracting and confusing. Dont bother.
