What a disappointment.
It’s the first time I’ve stopped listening to an audio book. I probably would have stopped sooner (I listened to almost half) if it had been a library book –Libraries ROCK! Endless (endless!) detail, no end of calamities, I simply got bored.
I didn’t really read any reviews before choosing the book (as part of my birthday gift). Reviews are also spoilers and I enjoyed Amy Tan’s previous books. When I like an author it seems like a safe bet. The last book I read by Tan was “The Opposite of Fate” and I think I liked that one best of all.
Note: Yup! Am still reading “A Suitable Boy” by Vikram Seth!
