This book was so filled with the minutiae of everyday life that I would start thinking of my own lists and things to do while listening. It had potential but went downhill less than halfway though. I kept thinking it would get better but alas, it only got worse. I actually felt sorry for the narrater. She'll likely get poor reviews because the book she read was so very bad. I actually thought she was a good reader and would have liked to give her five stars. Unfortunately she had nothing of value to perform so it was very difficult to rate this area. John Grisham should be ashamed of himself foisting this boring tome on his fans. Thank heavens I worked while I listened, otherwise I would have hired a lawyer and sued for compensation for my 14 hours spent listening. I will hesitate purchasing any future books he writes. If you've never read John Grisham believe me don't start with this. He got some excellent works out there that will make you wonder if he really wrote this.
Oryx and Crake was a fabulous read and listen as was MaddAddam. I wasn't able to finish the book After The Flood but thought if I listened to it it may make a difference. Well that didn't work. Listening to this reminded me of watching cement set......very slow. There was nothing compelling about this book that made me want to listen. I could not not even finish it.
I love Margaret Atwood. I just didn't like this book.
Narration was decent; the narrator just didn't have good material to work with.
It was hard to make this experience worse but the hymns did the trick.
An excellent read
Elizabeth. She was the centerpiece of everyones' life; even those who did not realize it at first.
It seemed so authentic.
I read this book in paper format and enjoyed it very much. However, the audio book really drew me into the story. Same story but a totally different experience. The readers for each characters' part were well chosen and made me want to be a part of the story!
