Publisher's Summary

Jonathan Dee is the critically acclaimed author of Palladio. With The Privileges, Dee crafts a “suspenseful, melancholy, and acidly funny tale” (Booklist). In it, ambitious couple Adam and Cynthia Morey marry straight out of college and have two children. Then Adam, unfulfilled with his job at a private investment firm, becomes involved in insider trading and gains excessive wealth for his family. But as Adam and Cynthia discover, money can’t buy happiness.

A little boring

What disappointed you about The Privileges?

I just had trouble getting into the story..

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of David Aaron Baker?

I liked him as the narrator. I just do not think changing would have made a difference/

Terrible Narrator

The narrator of The Privileges was dreadful. His women and children voices sounded like mockeries. I would have stopped listening to it but I was on a long drive and I had run through my podcasts.
The story was interesting enough for a long drive. Not great literature but entertaining.
It would not be the first book I would recommend, I have listened to worse.
