  • The Gathering

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 37 mins)
    • By Anne Enright
    • Narrated By Terry Donnelly

    Story
    (38)

    Regarded as one of her country's foremost voices, Irish author Anne Enright makes a fresh mark on a rich literary tradition. The Gathering is a deeply insightful family saga, steeped in secrets and intrigue, unfolding over three generations.

    Lori says: "Not For Everyone"
    "Underserving of the Booker Prize"
    Overall

    Not only is the story negative and depressing, but every sentence is itself negative and depressing. I can't figure out how this book won the Booker Prize. It is no Coetzee, that's for sure.

    (392)

    Sandra Foster studies fads and their meanings for the HiTek corporation. Bennett O'Reilly works with monkey group behavior and chaos theory for the same company. When the two are thrust together due to a misdelivered package and a run of seemingly bad luck, they find a joint project in a flock of sheep. But a series of setbacks and disappointments arise before they are able to find answers to their questions - with the unintended help of the errant, forgetful, and careless office assistant Flip.

    Charles says: "The Lone Naysayer..."
    "Enjoyable story, fun science"
    Overall

    Not very sophisticated, but a fun read, especially for those of us who have worked in academic or lab settings and done research.
