    "BORING!!!"
    What disappointed you about Breaking the Ties That Bind?

    The storyline was very boring. Her mother harrases her for money a couple times then it goes on and on detailing this boring love affair that never really gets started.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Gwynne Forster again?

    No never, I don't know how this even got published! I selected it because the narrator was one of my favorites.Now I know you can't use that as a way of selecting a good audiobook. I want my credit back. This was the worst book I ever attempted to listen too.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Zzzzzzzzzzzz


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    total disappointment!!!!
