Your thoughts on AWAY?
Hi all. I need some input please. I'm on the first CD of the audio version of Amy Bloom's novel AWAY and I want to know if it is worth continuing. Have any of you read/listened to it?
I was intrigued by the reviews I read a few months back but I'm really not getting into the story at this point. One thing that is bothering me is the omniscient narrator. I feel like I'm hopping from one character's head to another (which I am) and getting a bit dizzy in the process. Plus I'm not feeling connected to the main character, Lillian.
So please tell me - does the story get better from here? Is it worth continuing? Am I wasting my time? I'd love to hear what you all think ...
