The book was entertaining but, I can’t believe that the narrator would put such little passion in narrating her own book. Several times I was ready to stop and forget about the book as she was slurring the words like they didn’t matter and became so monotonous that it gave the-listener the impression she was bored with her own book. A minus 1 to the reader.
Good lord the narration was abysmal. Add to that the lackluster story and you get a truly awful book. The relationships were completely insane. The "friends" didn't seem like good friends at all, the entire relationship started with frankly disturbing stalking, and the main character sabotages everything that happens to her and can't seem to realize it is her own doing. Hard to be sympathetic to that. Add to that the cliche Audrey Hepburn at a dinner party PLUS a weird teacher who didn't really even like you, and you had ONE class with, in which you did not do well? Terrible. Pass on this.
The Dinner List was so hard to get through. It may have been a lovely story but I could not get past the unenthusiastic narration. I know that this was the author doing the narration and maybe she should have had someone else do the reading. I finally quite listening during the second chapter, I just couldn't go on. It was a waste of money. I'm giving the book 2 stars because I think it would have been better with a different reader.
