    Very hard to understand her reading, especially with the accents

    This is a dark, dismal story but it brings up lots of interesting issues I've never thought about concerning anthropologists as social scientists. It was a Book Club pick but I am glad I read it. The BC discussion was very lively and most participants really liked this book. Their #1 complaint over having read the hard copy book was that it was often hard to tell who was telling the story: Nell, Fen or Bankson. I lucked out by listening to the audio book because both readers did an excellent job of changing accents (from American to Australian to British) according to the narrator. Problem solved!

    The primary settings were fascinating. The relationships developing among the characters intriguing. If only it were twice as long.,,
