Not a good one for an audiobook
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I listen to my books while doing something else, but this book is not made for that. The story is written in an unusual way, that requires high concentration while listening. I was lost just after few sentences, it did get better later on but I still believe this book is made for reading not listening.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
Surprise surprise, it's a story about greed - specifically about very, very greedy people doing bad things trying to accumulate the wealth other, weaker people have collected. It's heavy, dark and sad story really. I stopped listening after one hour, having no intention to finish this book any more.
