I can't believe I did that. I meant to buy Kate Atkinson's Life After Life and got this one instead. Talk about buyer's remorse. I listened to the first 30 minutes or so and, although it wasn't horrible, it wasn't the book I wanted to listen to...
While I enjoyed the book a lot and some of Wolitzer's observations about the 7o's, art, creativity, modern life--I found the reading to be excruciating at times. Nothing takes you out of an audiobook more than a mispronounced word (there are several); the transitions between chapters and sections are much too abrupt. Really not a pleasant listening experience. I don't fault the reader, who was basically find, but the production team on this one.
A really terrific short book. Engaging reader performing a wide variety of accents and characters. Loved thinking about the development of the dramatic form, and the many different types of language required.
