I love Anne Tyler books but this audio version is so dull I had to stop listening and read the book instead. The main character doesn't have much personality as it is, but when his voice carries the lines of the other characters in the book it goes beyond blah.
Once I started reading the book, I liked the story better. I was beginning to wish that the burglar had finished Liam off.
Alan Bennett reading his lovely little novel - who could ask for more?
