I love to read and you must also, since you’re here! My 'currently-reading' list always includes a book I am reading as well as one I'm listening to. This blog, a labor of love and a constant work-in-progress, is a way for me to share my thoughts about what I've read; I'm not a pro but I am passionate! I have purposely not summarized plot lines because the people that do that professionally are so darn good at it. I hope you enjoy the opinions and musings you find here. Thank you for visiting!

This book was painfully slow for me. So many words, so little story. I listened to this one. It was split into two parts. At one point I lost my place and went through the process of skipping around the audio until I found my place. I thought I was successful and continued to listen only to find that I had picked a place about 30% further into the book than I had actually been. Now, here's where it gets sad- I didn't miss a thing! I picked it right up and was able to finish without missing a beat. I did go back and listen to what I had skipped and it filled in a few blank spots but the real point is that I shouldn't have been able to skip so much out of the middle of the book and still come away with the same opinion. I have seen this one get some very high ratings and it has appeared on multiple book lists, keeping company with books I adore, but as far as I'm concerned- this was an eye-bleeding experience that I'm happy to put behind me.
