Much as I wanted to like this book, (and the narrators did an excellent job of giving the characters a voice), I found it to be very tedious. Almost nothing happened in the entire 8 long CD's encompassing several characters and over 40 years. I can't recommend this one to anybody.
Ursula Heigi is a great story teller. The story is told through several voices (with diffierent readers for each). Very effective.
