I liked this listen but it wasn't very challenging. I knew who the culprit was early on, or at least one of them, without too much mental effort on my part.
As the story unfolded, we get the feel for a close-knit Italian community, its inhabitants, and social mores. Intermixed are the vicarious lives we lead and the consequences of our decisions.
Our main character, Gilda, won the lottery and even though the story is not about what she does with the money, that backstory is interwoven into the how and why of things.
The narration was good for the subject. Huberth was easy to listen to and her voices were distinct and recognizable.
The title is a little misleading but you have to listen to know why. All in all, not a bad listen.

I have to admit to not finishing this book. I did try. I don't know what it was but I just couldn't get into it. I would listen to a bit and then go and listen to something else. I did this a few times and then I just gave up.
I don't know if it was the narrator or the book itself but it did not grip me at all.
This is not for me but it might be for others.
