Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
In all fairness, I am only just 2 hours into this book, but I am more disappointed with this work than any I can recall in all my 7 plus years of buying audio books. The author rambles on endlessly with no real direction. I cannot recall a single word or detail from the past 2 hours. She has described a variety of people, her boyfried, her dad and her mom in the past 2 hours with no real connection to the story. I am hoping it gets better, but not sure I have the stomach to listen to much more. If you're looking for an engaging read with a story that draws you in, this is not it, at least not immediately (or shortly thereafter).
What do you think your next listen will be?
Not sure, but searching now.
Have you listened to any of Mary Robinette Kowal’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No; but the problem is not the narrator. It's the slow dry start to the story.
Was The Museum of Abandoned Secrets worth the listening time?
Not so far.
Any additional comments?
I want a refund!

The use of language and the voice acting both make this book one of my all time favourites. It provides a tantalizing glimpse into Soviet Ukraine and identity in the modern country. I highly recommend it.
