Any additional comments?

This is a pleasant enough novel. It didn't really go anywhere though and was predictable. In the last few chapters, I was just wanting to get to the end, so I could move on to the next book, rather than care about what happened (never a good thing). I suppose that was due to it being a bit bland by then. Its worth noting that if I don't enjoy a book, I usually just discard it and move on. I didn't in this case because the characters were pleasent enough and I expected more to happen.

Hard to follow

Depressing story, bland narrator, jumps all around. Tried to listen to it several times but gave up.

Too much sadness

I couldn't finish listening to it. It was all about a woman's misery and things that kept going wrong with her life and everyone elses. A depressing book. The narrator was quite good.
