Extremely Poor Listen

I cannot remember when I have last read(listened to) a worst book. It was a struggle for me to get through all three parts. The characters are not believable and the dialogue is dreadful.

The wacky character of Aurora who will not disappoint.

Any additional comments?

If you enjoyed 'Terms of Endearment', you will delight hearing Aurora deal with her 3 grandchildren and they with her. The plot was weak, but the characters stole the show. The narrator was better than average.
