Really painful book to listen to! We were a group of people in a long car ride together listening to this and it was bad. The voices by the narrator and the metaphors by the author. I will not finish this book. By the end of the ride, we just couldn't listen to it anymore. I usually like dark edgy books or bukowski type stories, but this is really badly written. Maybe other people will find something in this book. We couldn't though.
The narration by Barbara Kingsolver herself is amazing. I also listened to her other book "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle". She just has a way of reading that captures your attention and her writing is so sincere. I can't wait to buy another one of her books!
