Sweet uplifting story from one of my favorite story-tellers. It's always in a place you would want to visit (and maybe live). I thoroughly enjoyed this listen.
I took a chance on this and was pleasantly surprised. It took a bit to take off but when it did - hang on to your seat! Good listen.
There's the great writing and that gets the stars but if I wanted to read non-fiction, I would have chosen that genre. Sure, it's pretty accurate but there's no real fiction ending. It's the real world - I live that every day. I read fiction to kind of escape that. No stars for the wrap up - 2 stars for "at least it's Grisham".
OK, there are a few (ok, a lot) of places where it doesn't "toe the mark" as far as a GWTW afficianado would be concerned but it is a great story. I had no problem listening all the way through - great ending, too. Worth the listen...
I completely agree with Kristie. There are so many characters and plot lines that I have had quite a time keeping up with them - it is virtually impossible. This was such a problem that I stopped listening for several days and went back to it later. I'm still struggling...
As usual, Atwood is an excellent writer but the story just didn't make it. I hung in there waiting for a glimmer of resolution but got none.
