depressing and boring

I've always liked this narrator, which is why I gave this a try. Mistake. I listened to over half of it expecting something to catch on but finally skipped to the end to see if there was any kind of ending. I just don't get what the author was aiming for. The central character's life is so joyless and hopeless. Her way of resolving this is to take a big risk on something and then the book ends. All I could think is, I hope that works out for her.

This is not for people who love action packed narrative, but if you enjoy deepening your knowledge and understanding of the human condition, come to this book. The narrator is The Best. No contest.
