I'm working my way through Pulitzer Prize winners for fiction. The exceptional narrator contributes much to the enjoyment of this fascinating story of the deep south spanning three generations. The different voices were so distinct that there seemed to be more than one reader. Told from several characters' perspectives, the story unfolded seamlessly with an unexpected climax. This is one of the best audiobooks I've listened to (out of about 40). My dog appreciated it too, as I stretched out my listening time as long as possible on our walks.
Characters are unrealistic and the storyline predictable. When doing Cornelia's voice narrator sounds like she's reading to children...cloying and overdone. A total waste of money/credits unless you enjoy schmaltzy romantic fluff.
