This was an odd audiobook. 2.5 stars for the story and I'm struggling whether to bump up to a 3 or down to a 2, but since I wanted to listen to something really short, I'll go with a 3.
First of all the narrator has a British accent and voiced all the characters with British accents even though they're Americans and the story is set in the U.S. I thought I had mis-heard the background information and had to go back a couple times to listen again. I tried to move past the accent, but the formal and proper tone made me feel removed from the story and characters.
Very short stories like this one (90 mins) usually have limited plot and character development, but I expect to at least be drawn to 1 or more characters, especially if the plot isn't strong. It was a Cinderfella plot that was basically a story sketch with too much crammed into it - I had a hard time following the story as it jumped around the country and I never felt any connection to the main characters or their romance.
But if you're just looking for something really short to hold your attention, give it a try - you might like it better than I did!
