Good news/Bad news
I highly recommend this author and book as not only an intriguing story line but highly reflective of life in the Carolinas. Maron captures the essence of the life and mannerisms of the south in a humorous but loving way. I love her main character as both a member of a large extended family as am I and also reflective of the conflict of modern woman between personal and professional life.
The reader is rushed in pace and with a nasal quality that is irritating. I found her tone to be aggravating and not at all what I had imagined to be the main character's voice. Very unhappy with her work. If future audible books for Maron use her, I won't be buying them.
Parts of it made me laugh because the characters were realistic and folks that have peopled my own life.
I look forward to seeing who is used as reader in the future books.
