Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I struggled thru the book. My 1st audible and did not like the voice performance. I did not find the voice overs convincing that this was Portland.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

A time capsule of Portland in the early 2000's.

What didn’t you like about Betty Bobbitt’s performance?

I live in Portland. The reader had an East Coast Accent, could not pronounce the names of neighborhoods, sounded strongly "affected" -- sometimes East Coat accent, sometimes a little British Accent. Not at all Portland, Oregon sounding.
