    Story

    Winn Van Meter is heading for his family's retreat on the pristine New England island of Waskeke. Normally a haven of calm, for the next three days this sanctuary will be overrun by tipsy revelers as Winn prepares for the marriage of his daughter Daphne to the affable young scion Greyson Duff. Winn's wife, Biddy, has planned the wedding with military precision, but arrangements are sideswept by a storm of salacious misbehavior and intractable lust: Daphne's sister, Livia, who has recently had her heart broken by Teddy Fenn.

    Annie M. says: "A Great Authorial Debut"
    "Poor Narrator Ruins Good Book"

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better reader.


    What didn’t you like about Arthur Morey’s performance?

    He reads in a monotone which makes it extremely difficult to follow.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Seating Arrangements?

    None.


    Any additional comments?

    I think this is probably a very charming book with wonderfully quirky characters. But I have started over three times and am still hang trouble because the reader is so boring.
