    "The narration ruined it for me"
    Would you try another book from Catherine Claire Larson and/or Bahni Turnpin?

    Maybe by Catherine Claire Larson, but not by Bahni Turnpin. The narration was so distracting that I couldnt see past it.


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

    I didnt get that far, had to quit.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bahni Turnpin?

    Anyone. She spoke too slowly and dragged out words unnaturally. The worst part was that she put on Rwandan accents when she quoted Rwandans but she didnt ham it up when she quoted American men or other people. I couldnt listen to it. It also seemed overly sentimental in the reading. Very unnatural tones.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I couldnt finish listening even though I was in Rwanda at the time and wanted to learn more.
