This story made me nuts. The tale switches back and forth between different first person narrations and different time periods so much that I couldn't tell which way was up. Who is supposed to be speaking now? Is this before the other part, or after? I spent two hours listening to the first 45 minutes of the book trying to figure it out. I spent the rest of the book somewhat confused but couldn't bear to keep repeating chapters to try and find the "hand-off" from one character and time period to the next. It doesn't help that the characters who are doing the narration are all a little crazy too. Sometimes what they say just doesn't make sense and really is unrelated to the current topic. Its done to add a teaser to the story to get you to continue reading, but in my case I couldn't tell if I was confused or if the character was dropping a hint. In the end it will come together into a semblance of a coherent plot. If you can survive that long. The narrator doesn't help as all of her characters speak in the same voice and it is difficult to tell when you move from one portion of the story to the next. It was so irritating to me that I could not enjoy the plot which I think I might have liked had it been told in a more straight forward fashion.
