it was ok
Read in July, 2008

I don't think this story lent itself to the audio format. The changes of narration both back and forth in time and from person to person was confusing enough, but throw in dialog that just ends ...

I also felt that the Aunt and all of the political propaganda surrounding her entry in the story put me off. Another criticism of the narration -- I thought Aunt Stormy was supposed to be German, but the accent sounded more like she was from India! ARGH!

Difficult to feel any connection with the characters because audio narration was annoying. A chore to finish. There were interesting components to the story and I would probably have had a better experience reading it myself rather than being read to.
