What would have made Girl Through Glass better?
It's pointe pronounced POINT. Not pwont. I am so distracted by that....it's silly, I know. But COME ON. In less OCD thoughts, so far, this book is just getting nowhere and not even fast. So many authors these days do that thing....you know....the thing where they jump back and forth from the past and the present. If it's done well, it's a good tool for suspense and an interesting way to present the history of a character. In this case, it's just choppy.
What do you think your next listen will be?
I'm not sure yet.
What didn’t you like about Tavia Gilbert’s performance?
Aside from the pointe/pwont thing,I actually think Ms. Gilbert is a good performer. She does various voices for the different characters very well and seamlessly. She has a good grasp of French pronunciation,aside, of course, from "pwont." As an aside, there have been a few cases where she does say pointe and I almost celebrate when she does.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Darkness. I have not finished the book, so this sentiment may change, but the book's main character is insipid. I think we are supposed to think she is a woman of strength and determination, but truly, she is weak and lets things happen to her. She hasn't, thus far anyway, shown any strength or will power.
Any additional comments?
I am hoping this book takes a turn towards the end, where I am currently.

My main problem with listening to this book was the narrater's insistence on saying " pa-went" instead of "pointe." It set my teeth on edge every time I heard it. I have been around ballet all my life and never have I heard it pronounced this way.
