I enjoyed the book and the narrator was generally good but her accents are shocking! Almost worth a listen for her Scottish and Welsh accents alone - terrible.

A\wonderful book , which I am sure some readers will hate for the very reasons I loved it.Real people do not all have happy lives.
I don't know what to think of this book. I persevered to the end but the main character was just so depressing, so immoral, so mixed up that I wanted to shake her. There was nothing to lighten the depressive nature of this novel ... no side storylines that take you away from the miserable life this woman leads. Billed as a mixture of Anna K and Madame Bovary .... it even lacked the love/infatuation those two heroines had for the men that ultimately led to their destruction. The love interest of this Anna was long gone. On the plus side, the use of the German language classes to highlight some of her feelings was clever but the constant whining about everything in her life and then dealing with it the way she does was just pathetic.

wasn't enthralled by the book but finished it because I was curious about the ending. somehow the ending seemed like too simple a solution to the problems.
