I was greatly disappointed given the great reviews.
I stuck with this book all the way to the end, because I kept thinking it had to get better, why else would be so highly praised in the reviews.
Other reviews talk about how great David Wroblewski's prose is, to me it read more like a high school student's attempt at using extra words to meet a length requirement for an assignment, or a young writer showing of the fact that he knows how to use a thesaurus
I love a long intricate books but listening to this book was torture on my ears. The only part that not incredibly boring was near the end, but then that even trailed off with a final ending that made no sense with the rest of book. I really wouldn't give even one star, but the site does not allow a rating of zero stars.
I really wish audible had a means of letting users filter reviews by listeners who had reviewed other books. I would ignore any reviews written by all those that loved this book.
