What disappointed you about Don't Cry for Me?
The story seemed stereotypical in its portrayal of characters and setting of the Kentucky back country. Not everyone in the country marries their cousins and not everybody runs meth labs and is addicted to pills.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Scandalous Desires by Elizabeth Hoyt and narrated by Ashford McNab.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kathe Mazur?
I would have looked for someone with more emotive qualities. Some characters, the main ones included, came off as flat and unemotional. I had trouble telling the difference from the heroine and the hero at times.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
All of the above. I was angry that the book came across as hick-ish when not everyone who lives in this type of area are rednecks. Sad that this so many people enjoyed it and think this is how life really is in the backwoods. Disappointment that it was nominated for an award when I'm sure there were much better productions made last year.
Any additional comments?
I will hesitate to listen to a romantic suspense from this narrator. She wasn't horrible the entire book. The best parts of this narration where the suspense and flashbacks of war. The worst parts were the ones were when she tried to inject humor; she didn't quite pull it off for me.The author, as much as I didn't like the overall story, did a good job of demonstrating the struggles veterans have adjusting to their old lives. I in no way felt she was mocking their struggle or the difficulties vets face on a day to day basis.
