depressing

I made it painfully to chapter 25. And I finally gave up. But maybe it's supposed to be painful. It's a very depressing book. but hey if someone feels like they are in a low, the protagonist here has got to be lower.

Strange, but consider the source

Riveting and repulsive (?) at once. Had to finish it!, the story had me in its thrall.

We Change

a good read about how we change as we react to the folks we encounter, and Howe we rarely even know who they are. do we ever find out who we are?

Pronunciation was off

Would have been nice if the narrator was from Toronto or at least Canadian, because the pronunciation of some the words and especially the places was wrong.

I love Atwood, but….

This was an odd story. Having listened to it, I am grateful that I was multitasking while listening, otherwise it would have been a serious waste of time. There was zero point to the story and it is easily forgotten.
