Ford Audio Book Club free download 9/11/14. (You need to join the GR Ford book club, add the book to your to-read shelf and they'll send you a code to download - 12/26/14 - offer no longer valid, but if you like audio books, join this club - they offer a free audio book every 6-8 weeks or so.)

This book has been getting some wonderful reviews. Unfortunately, mine isn't one of them. I listened to the audio book and I found myself snoozing and dozing off repeatedly. I'm not sure if it was the narrator - I've listened to her a few times and have enjoyed her narration. I just could not get into this story. It's probably just a case of "not my cup of tea."

I just found the book to be dull and boring and I couldn't wait for it to be over. I had no idea why the world was the way it was and having looked at some of the reviews for this book and some of the Q&A, it seems that there was a range of opinions as well.

Anyhow, thanks Ford for a chance to listen to this book. Better luck next time.

 ༄LEAH༄ Hey, just wondering if you got your code yet, because I had to add it to my "currently reading" before I actually got the code.

message 2: by AH (new) - rated it 1 star

AH It needs to be on your to-read list and the code can take up to 24 hours to arrive. I think I waited overnight.

Wendy Darling "Dull and boring." ---> YES.
