Would you try another book from Anne Michaels and/or Peter Marinker?
I don't know that I'd try another book by Anne Michaels since I found this one hard to get through. Structurally, I was really thrown by the 2nd part of the book and almost completely lost interest.
How could the performance have been better?
The narrator had some odd pronunciation quirks that may be due to American/Canadian/British English differences but some of them I thought "I think he's just wrong!" Most such changed pronunciations roll over me but not in this book.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The story itself is tragic and interesting and there are very lyrical passages in the novel that I enjoyed. But at the end of the day, getting through it was a bit of a chore for me.
The beautiful language will always stay with me, I have read it three times, each time I appreciate it even more.
