©2006 Elinor Lipman; (P)2008 BBC Audiobooks America
Insightful, intelligent, funny
To Kill a Mockingbird because it's told from a child's point of view, a funny and astute child.
Great voices, just terrific.
Yes, mostly the ending.
I'm sad that it's over and there is nothing I can find to follow it up!
Heard so many wonderful things about Elinor Lipman but this was a huge disappointment. I'm not even a quarter of the way through but it's a toss up whether I'll continue with it. there's no perceivable plot and little dialogue, just a narrative by a young girl who is mildly amusing, but not very interesting. Her parents are downright boring and the newest character, the ex-wife is just silly. As to the "discovery" of this first marriage of the narrator's dad, well, it's just not interesting. I really don't care about the details. I really regret wasting my money on this one. Dang! Wish I had read the Amazon reviews and not just the Audible reviews, which turned out to be a bit misleading for me.
