I started this book expecting one thing. I had in my mind how it was going to read and the general direction that the book was going to go. I was so far off that it made the book all the more worth reading! I kept me so interested that every free minute I had I kept hitting the play button to listen for just a few minutes.
This was a book that was recommended to me by a friend. I read the description, I was not at that interested at the time. I added it to my favorites any way. I kept hearing how great this book was so finally I used a credit to get the book knowing in the back of the mind if it ends of being unbearable I can always return it. Well, in the end I spent an entire Sunday listening to this book. I had to stop it a few times to take care of a few things but if it would not have been for these interruptions I would have completed it all in "one sitting."
That would have been better had I read it from the last chapter to the first chapter! I know it was written so that it was looking backward through a time glass persay but it made it hard to follow, especially with so many characters.
The narrator's in this book were great. The book itself took away from their performance because it was hard to keep up with who was who.
I was disappointed with this book. I have read mostly her newer books and this book did not impress me like her other books.
I really wanted to love this book. I am a HUGE fan of the Wizard of Oz and I guess I expected this book to be something it was not. I was unable to finish listening to this book; it was too drawn out. It reminded me of something written around the time in which authors were paid for every word they wrote not necessarily for the quality of what they wrote. I really tried to like it and listened for much longer then I wanted hoping something would spark my attention or that it would pick up that was never the case.
