Portable Mistletoe

Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

The Alienist ★★☆☆☆ (DNF)

The Alienist (Audio) - Caleb Carr, Julie Carr, Edward Herrmann

This seemed really promising. An interesting premise and good reviews from people I trust. So maybe it's the audio format, but throughout the first 2 hours of audio I kept having to rewind and re-listen because my mind kept wandering to other things. I just got tired of waiting for the pace to pick up, but instead it was almost continuous talking and exposition. Blah blah blah. DNF at 9%

 

Audiobook via Audible. I normally really enjoy George Guidall, but not this time. 

 

I attempted to read this for the Booklikes Halloween Bingo square Amateur Sleuth

It shouldn't be too hard to find a substitute.
