It was funny, but way too long. Too much parody, however I did like the characters.
I didn't like the narrator, I love the story, but too dated.
This book is following the same type of story that you see with a lot of British writers these days... in the same path as Possession and Jack Maggs. When authors expand on a actual piece of literature, recreating and redefining it to be something else. I just wonder how original this is. Not very.
I found the story to be too slow for an audiobook.
I loved the book. I loved the sarcastic tone of this book.
I had trouble getting into it, too much flowery description. I didn't like the narrator, even though it was the author. He was too wooden. I feel it should have been narrated by a woman. I loved the end, it made the book, I can't believe I didn't see the relationship between all the women.
I didn't like the voice of the narrator. It was so violent. The story was too fictional, telling the story of an actual event in too much of a soap opera-ish quality.
I give it a 3 1/2 ... The story line just didn't make it. And I couldn't decide whether to sympathize or dislike the Jack Maggs character.
I loved this book. It has subtle, hilarious qualities. I loved the sarcasm.
Depressing book. I dont see why he took it from that woman... depression
