This is possibly one of *the* worst books I have ever read. Great premise - terrible storyline and execution. Not only is the writing marginal, but the author re-uses the same hokey imagery over and over "quicksilver child", "thin hair, held back with barettes". There is little redeeming about the characters, and the subplots are simply unbelievable. Don't waste a credit or your time on this one. If I were the publisher, I'd be embarrassed.

Sorry. This one was a disappointment. I quickly tired of characters who made bad decisions and then proceeded to compound the mistakes.

I enjoyed this CD set very much. The story of how a single moment and a single decision can change the course of your life, of many lives. Very good.

Adequate. I don't think I would have finished this book if I didn't have the audio version. As it was, I'm not convinced it wasn't a waste of time. Lots of potential in the story, but I feel like the author just didn't try hard enough.

Well read version of the popular book. Abridged to 11 hours to fit on 6 CDs, but far more detailed than the film version.
