    Story
    "Nothing too deep"

    This is what I would call an "easy read". The plot and characters were not too deep or thought provoking but it held my interest. The narrator did a good job.

    Story
    "Like it in spite of itself"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The plot line behind this book is unusual and interesting by was over-simplified, like it was written for a younger audience. Some key scenes were glossed over while backtracking the story. Still, it held my attention and I routed for the main character Minke throughout, anxious to learn of a resolution. Loved the narrator, her voice fit well with my image of what Minke would sound like.
