Intriguing idea which turns literary to farce

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This is a book which must be finished, however the "who is watching who, watching who, and watching them", has an element of literary farce. The initially intriguing plot is stretched thin, the writing style over complicated which with the dull narration makes the book tedious. Characters are shallow stereotypes, and the plot predictable.


What didn’t you like about Buffy Davis’s performance?

Dull and rather monotonous to my ear, not aided by the repetitive story line with very predictable outcomes and shallow characters.


Did The Expats inspire you to do anything?

Not an inspiring book I am afraid, a great story idea which was let down in the narrative and the narration.

The performer sounded bored..

I found it rambling and dreary, and the narrative seemed to wander off into flights of fancy that I couldn't follow in audio book format.

Then by Chapter 9 the performer sounded bored of it all and so I gave up too.
