I never quit books mid-way, but I seriously almost abandoned this multiple times. I kept waiting for the redeeming plot twist or something, but I was left regretting the hours invested in listening to the various ramblings and rantings of a self-absorbed woman trying hard to screw her life up in as many ways as she could. Minimal plot and romance, maximum whining - although the narrators did a great job, the female narration really captures the essence of the character and I had to listen on 1.5 just to get through it.
A lot of this story is spent inside the head of our heroin, Eve. Eve often has an inner monolouge that goes on for ten minutes about the same thing. Often times her tangents involve her emotional journey, but I would much rather be SHOWN this characters journey, than hear it worked out in her head for 20% of the story. I don't need you to reitterate the connection to your sister in twelve different sentences that relay the same point. This romance novel is more in the "discovering oneself" genre, that happens to have a nice guy lurking in the background of the story. I would have preferred this book a little more if her tangents were cut in half.
