A powerfully moving novel told from alternating perspectives, Commuters is an intensely human story of lives profoundly changed by the repercussions of one marriage, and by the complex intertwining of love, money, and family.

    Story
    "This captured me"
    What did you love best about Commuters?

    Commuters is well-paced, fluid and captures the family drama of circumstances that I never expect to encounter, but were interesting to confront in Emily Tedrowe's writing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Some of the character development proceeded in ways I would not have expected.


    What does Norman Dietz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He kept to a rhythm that enhanced some of the care the author took in setting the story out, things I would have missed if I just blasted through it, as I do some things I read.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It's more character-based, and it presents itself comfortably, so it engages you over time.


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely worth the time to listen to the author, as set forth by the narrator.

    I listen to books while I do the repetitive part of my job and while I do yard work. I can't use audiobooks that require strict attention.

    "I just don't care"

    I listened to this for 3 hours and finally quit because I simply didn't care about any of it. They aren't bad people and I'd probably have a nice chat with Winnie if I bumped into her in a coffee shop, but I could not listen to any more of their lives. It is ordinary people living ordinary lives of happinesses, confusions and struggle. I've already got one of those. Mr. Dietz' careful enunciation didn't make it any more riveting.
