's review

it was ok
bookshelves: arc-reviewers-copy, audio-book, downloads, fiction

I think I made a mistake listening to this on audio. I'm usually such a fan of Jim Crace's writing, and I have copies of Harvest and Continent waiting to be read. But man was the audio brutal. I just could not get into it, struggled to connect with the characters, and ultimately didn't understand why it took so long to cover so little.

Utterly disappointed because I expected so much more.

Cheryl Hale Maybe you should go back and read it.

Lori unfortunately Cheryl, it's too late for that. I've already experienced it.
