Too Slow

Reviewed: 08-24-10

I have read most of Jennifer Weiner's books, but this is the first audiobook of hers I have tried. The story is long and uneventful - I kept waiting for something interesting to happen, but it was just more of the same. If you loved "Good in Bed," this story will be a disappoinment; all of the humor and feist of that book is absent from this story. Also, the narration is a bit too dramatic for the boring content.

Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

Her marriage challenged by an insane, irresistible love affair, Julie decides to leave town and immerse herself in a new obsession: butchery. She finds her way to Fleischer's, a butcher shop where she buries herself in the details of food. She learns how to break down a side of beef and French a rack of ribs--tough, physical work that only sometimes distracts her from thoughts of afternoon trysts.
