    What disappointed you about And the Mountains Echoed?

    The story got lost in my continuous effort to understand the readers.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    l


    How could the performance have been better?

    Readers should not have foreign accents that make them difficult to understand


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The book was good but I didn't get to enjoy it


    Any additional comments?

    Pass through full chapters just to not battle the reader

    May, Christine, Heed, Junior, Vida, even L: all women obsessed by Bill Cosey. More than the wealthy owner of the famous Cosey Hotel and Resort, he shapes their yearnings for father, husband, lover, guardian, and friend, yearnings that dominate the lives of these women long after his death. Yet while he is both the void in, and the center of, their stories, he himself is driven by secret forces: a troubled past and a spellbinding woman named Celestial.
