    "Fantastic story!"

    At the beginning of this story I really thought it was going to be to depressing to listen to. So much tragedy. But I am so glad I stayed with it. Wonderful story and I loved the language used. Fantastic narrator. I am now enjoying the second book in this series.

    Story
    "Skip this one"

    If anything can go wrong, it will go wrong. It will even go wrong if it's improbable. It's like a sorry soap opera. You can skip ahead 15 minutes in the story and have missed nothing, except for possibly another bleak and improbable event. Sometimes the narrator can make a poor story better, but in this case they're well suited.
