I'm giving up on the audio at 4 parts into a 10-part book. I truly can't stand these characters and I've decided life is too short. I had the same reaction to Gone Girl so there must be something to all of the comparisons between the two books.

I'm about to write a huge sweeping statement that I really shouldn't but here goes.

I just don't do well with South American authors.

That's not fair. I've only read three or four, I think. But I never have a clue what's actually going on. What's real,

John Steinbeck
“To find not only that this bedlam of color was true but that the pictures were pale and inaccurate translations, was to me startling. I can't even imagine the forest colors when I am not seeing them. I wondered whether constant association could cause inattention, and asked a native New Hampshire woman about it. She said that autumn never failed to amaze her; to elate. 'It is a glory,' she said, 'and can't be remembered, so that it always comes as a surprise.”
John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

“When he talked politics, it was with me, or my sister, pointing a steady and patient finger at us, saying, “I don’t care about left or right. It’s all nonsense. All I ask of you is this: Be kind. Be decent. And don’t be greedy.”
Nickolas Butler, Shotgun Lovesongs

John Steinbeck
“But from the start I had withheld from him any information about the giant redwoods. It seemed to me that a Long Island poodle who had made his devoirs to Sequoia sempervirens or Sequoia gigantea might be set apart from other dogs--might even be like that Galahad who saw the Grail. The concept is staggering.”

“That's the curse of the reading class. We can be seduced by a good story even at the most inopportune moments.”
