Okay story, dull reading
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Don't think I'm going to make it that far!
What didn’t you like about Alyssa Bresnahan’s performance?
Little expression, no characterisation. Conversations sound like bad 50's acting.
What character would you cut from To Play the Fool?
I haven't connected with any of the characters in this book. The reading infuses little, if any, life into them. Kate appears boring and bland.
Any additional comments?
Usually I listen carefully to my audiobooks, and will rewind if I miss bits. With this book, I just don't care. My mind is drifting frequently, but I can't be bothered going back. The action is so slow, I haven't missed much anyway. On top of this, the recording quality is poor. When the volume is turned up high (which for me is necessary when I'm in the garden) there is a background hiss with another voice faintly audible, as if it was recorded with talkback radio playing in the next room.
