I just started listening to this one for my commute. So far I am drawn in and intrigued by the main character's children more than by her or her cheating husband Leo.

Since I am listening to this book, I won't be able to critique the writing style...but I will be forced to pay attention to the details of the story.

I am at the end of disk two and honestly, I am not really that in to the book. Normally, even novels that I would have difficulty reading, I listen to with great attention and enthusiasm. None of the characters, not even the kids, jump out as me as intriguing or worth caring about.

If I were not stuck in teh car with a long commute and sick to death of the radio, I would return the book to the library.

I hope it gets better.

The book did get better and I did learn to love each of the characters. NOt sure I would completely recommend the book; it was not my favorite but it was ok.
