Noisy backgroud, bad reader and hard to follow action make this book bad. Don't waste your money on it. It is nothing like Snow flower written by the same author-also steer clear of this reader. High pitched voice combined with no knowledge of punctuation, no inflection...Brr!

After thoroughly enjoying Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, I was eager to try out Lisa See's detective series. Flower Net was a big disappointment, starting with the quality of the recording - it is awful. There are skips, horrible background music and miserable vocal clarity. Trying to filter all that out, I wondered if this was even the same writer. The prose were very bland compared to "Snow Flower" and the plot wasn't great either. Perhaps the plot problem is the result of this abridged version (can't find the unabridged anywhere). Fortunately, I didn't let my disappointment with Flower Net stop me from trying out the second book, Interior, via the local audio library. Interior is much better, same character base but I feel like I'm reading the Lisa See of "Snow Flower" again.
Perhaps they should try to re-record Flower Net. unabridged, and dump the cheesy background music.

The story sounds like it could be good, but the recording quality is very poor and it sounds as if some parts of the story are missing as the plot seems to jump from bit to bit unintentionally - obviously been no quality check undertaken on this baby!!!
