I enjoyed this book, I was surprised when the story ended. I had developed empathy for the main character and was disappointed that she hadn't resolved glaring issues in her life.
This book is similar, love the glimpses into Venetian life. I enjoyed the main character. I admire the way Donna Leon gives you insight into the characters' motivation through their actions, more than through narration.
The narrator is very talented. What I find maddening about Donna Leon's audiobooks is the Italian accented English. Why can't they be narrated like Andrea Camilleri's books? We all know the story takes place in Italy. Does every word and thought of the characters have to have an Italian accent? I wanted to bang my head at times. It must be the author's choice to have them narrated this way.
no. Most of the action is cerebral. It would be a dull movie.
Love the unspoken interpersonal tension among the characters. Gripping story develops through different characters' points of view. I can't stop listening to this book.
I don't know what I was thinking. I'm disturbed by human trafficking, child abuse, sexual abuse. I couldn't bear to listen to this story.
Conflict of Interest is a long legal procedural. I couldn't empathize with a single one of the characters.
The Danish accents are maddening. Plus, it's hard to tell the characters apart. I won't buy any more books narrated like this.
