A long, slow joirney..

Would you listen to Hothouse Flower again? Why?

I enjoyed the book, but would probably not listen to it again. There were too many stories within stories, which made it feel a little dragged out in places.


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

This could possibley have been done over two books, or maybe settle for less is more in terms of storyline twists.


Would you listen to another book narrated by Beth Chalmers?

Not sure that I particularly liked the narration style.


Who was the most memorable character of Hothouse Flower and why?

Julia was the stand out character, with the others revolving around her in some way.


Any additional comments?

A long haul for an audio book, but overall nice story.
