An amazing book had so many mispronounced words that it left me angry and confused at how such an influential book could have turned into such an awful audio book. The narrator has obviously never read the Big Book, and though he has the raspy voice of an alcoholic, I have to assume there are millions of people out there who could have done a much better job at it. And I would guess they would not have charged for doing it.
Gail Caldwell is obviously a very talented writer and her descriptions of loss and grief are unbelievably well and creatively described. I was moved to tears many times, and was constantly surprised by the tale which takes so many different turns despite the knowledge that Caroline would die. The pace of the tale and non-linear time line were seamless and very enjoyable. I didn't want it to end.
