    Story
    "Good and realistic, but out of sync"

    Although this story documents an affair and is very bittersweet and realistic, it starts as one story and ends up as another. This story construct does not really work.. Most interesting and bittersweet is how people making decisions to leave a relationship cannot really let go of the last relationship.

    Story
    "Who Are These People and Why Should I Care?"
    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes, the narrator. I could picture the settings as she read, which is why I like to listen to books that take place in Ireland.


    Any additional comments?

    I picked this book because I enjoyed Heather O'Neill's reading of The Likeness so much and wanted to hear her voice again. She does a good job here, too, but the book was over before I found any reason to care about any of the characters!
