Would you consider the audio edition of The Wall of Winnipeg and Me to be better than the print version?
After seeing a review saying 'Boring', I did consider not buying this book, I am so glad I didn't listen to THAT review! OK, different strokes for different folks, but, there's no way this book could be described as 'Boring'!
Who was your favorite character and why?
The characters are well developed, you fall in love with them and care about them. You are invested in their story, I found myself actually laughing out loud or shouting, Nooooo!!!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I listened to this in one sitting.. Yep one! I had to finish! Great narration.
Any additional comments?
If you love romance, then yes! yes! Yes! but do not pick it up expecting a Guy de Maupassant Novel, then call it 'Boring'!

Mariana Zapta has a devoted fan in me. Her stories are relevant, interesting and more importantly very well written! The story of Vanessa and Aiden is not a love at first sight story. It is what she referred to once as a "slow burn". Non-the-less you will love this story if you are a die hard reader and love a good story based upon a solid relationship that was not easily built and not based on sexual attraction alone.

I've listened to 4 of Zapata's books. The slow development of the attraction between the characters is what I appreciate most. Usually other authors will throw a couple together with immediate attraction, and they fall into bed shortly thereafter. Not Zapata. The protagonists initially don't care for each other, and the changes in emotion is accompanied by the development and increased depth in the characters. I'm falling in love with them as they fall for each other. The story was long, but at the end I wished it wasn't over, which is the sign of a truly good book.
