©1998 Pam Houston; (P)1998 by The Publishing Mills, Inc.
The stories are terrific, but the narration is not great. It is a rare author who can narrate their own book well. Unfortunately, this author is not one of them. Ms. Houston's reading style is deadpan and monotonous. I think this is a pleasant book, but would have preferred reading this myself, rather than listening.
I'll pass any future books written by Pam Houston. It didn't help to that she was also the reader, since her voice did nothing to bring this story to life.
And the ending...well not much of one.
I do not recommend this one.
Pam Houston paints fabulous pictures with words. Her stories are funny but also feel very true. She pulls you in and it's hard to stop reading. Waltzing the Cat is one of her best.
