I really loved Some Luck, the first book in Smiley's planned sweeping family trilogy. I looked forward to this second installment and had high hopes. All I can say is that while listening I had an overwhelming feeling of weight and heaviness looming down on me. I had the image of myself wearing a huge oversized man's wool coat, stored too long in moth balls, standing in the August sun and heat on my brick patio. I couldn't move my arms, couldn't breathe, and needed to break free. So I did. I stopped listening and returned the book. Too much for me. I hope someone out there finds some pleasure in this book. I'd love to hear about that.

What disappointed you about Early Warning?
hard to follow without rereading first book in the series--don't recall relationships and no hints to who is who. Characters aren't interesting.
Would you ever listen to anything by Jane Smiley again?
Maybe--I really liked earlier books
