    "Definitely not my favorite audio book!"

    I became so annoyed with the whole story that I was unable to finish it by Part 3. It was a very strange and complicated plot for no reason at all. I could not relate to any of the characters, especially the main ones: Eleanor and Nicholas. The way they reacted to situations was often ridiculous. In addition, sometimes the book was confusing and I would have to re-listen to sections before moving forward. It was too tiresome! Not worth it.

    "It was okay"

    At first Eleanor was about as annoying as they come. She whined about everything and went from elated to suicidal over a look from Nicholas.

    I considered bailing on the story, but stuck it out. It WAS a bit of a complicated plot for not really any reason, but isn't that true of many books? I think perhaps it was partially related to the time period the book was set in, when it seems to me many things that were fussed over were trivial.

    I finished it yesterday and noticed myself missing them today. Jill Tanner did a great job of narrating.
