I listened to The Goldfinch last year and liked it. I purchase this book to see if how I would feel about another book by the same author and this time around, I was disappointed. I listened to the majority of this on audiobook and I am glad I did. This book is close to 600 pages and the story itself was a bit monotonous. It was long and drawn out. I enjoyed the first half of the book but then it just went on and on.
When I got to the end of the story which I had to physically read, I was so confused. There was no wrap up; no answers. I was at a loss and very annoyed. This is a long book for there to be such a crappy ending.
I may try to listen to The Secret History such everyone raves about it but, I will not be purchasing it.
I gave this book 2 crowns.
