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.

Jitters: A Quirky Little Audiobook ★☆☆☆☆

Jitters - A Quirky Little Audio Book (When Radio and Polygamy Collide) - Adele Park

How did I get suckered into buying this? It won the Audie, it was created specifically for the audio format, and it had high ratings and reviews on Audible and on GR and on BL. I wanted to like it. I kept giving it more time, waiting for... I guess for some sort of explanation or revelation. But this book, which is supposed to be quirky and funny and entertaining, treats the topics of rape, incest, and child abuse so lightly that I could only find it distasteful.
