I had a lot of trouble getting into this book. In fact, I had listened to the first 2 1/2 hours and then put it aside for a while because I couldn't get into it. Then when I decided to try it again I had to start from the very beginning since I couldn't remember anything about it. At least the second time through I started to understand it a little better. This book might have been easier to read than to listen to because it took a lot of concentration to figure out what was going on and the formatting. In fact, I never did figure out a lot of it. It keeps jumping back and forth between all these different characters. You would hear about something from one person's view and then the same situation from the other person's view. Sometimes it even seemed like some of the chapters might have been out of order. My mind kept drifting and I didn't care enough to go back and listen to what I might have missed. I just wanted to get to the end, which of course I didn't understand. Not the part where you finally find out what was going on, but the very end.
Considering the material I think the two narrators did a very good job.
What could Will Carver have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Tell the story in a more understandable way so that it could be followed.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
Narration was clear and entertaining.
Any additional comments?
At multiple points while listening to this book I thought someone had put chapters together in the wrong order. The book/plot was very convoluted and confusing. I continued to listen to all of it to try to understand what they had done wrong. At the end I was convinced it wasn't their problem, it was the author's. Interesting idea but very poorly constructed!
