too many notes
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Because this book has so many characters and so many "themes" it seemed to me to be disjointed and difficult to follow. Additionally, there were so many characters that none of them was developed into a character this reader/listener cared about.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
More character development. Fewer superficial twists of narrative.
Did Lesley Mackie do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
Because there were so many characters, differentiating by the reader was probably not possible. Mackie is an excellent reader but in this reading there were so many sudden changes of direction as well as changes of characters that Mackie failed to differentiate between stories so this listener was constantly having to reverse to catch up with a new character in a new narrative.
Could you see Evil for Evil being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Movies generally need to be more simplistic than books and this book was anything but simplistic.
Any additional comments?
Have the reader and recording separate not just chapters but also switches in narratives and characters.
