    "Just fair"

    The narration of this made me absolutely nuts. The reader has a good feel for the story but ruins the book by ending almost every sentence on an up inflection as in a question. The end result was that all of the characters sounded perpetually petulant so by the time things are falling apart you are so annoyed that there is no impact.

    "So-So..."

    Not much can be added about this book. A classical roman about classical people. The idea is pretty simple, but the description is a bit difficult. Too many characters, too many details and events. The narrator is not expressive, women and men talk in the same way. I guess there are books for reading and books for listening, and perhaps this book is not for listening.
