We’re back. Successful short trip. Successful listening to Tears of the Giraffe on CD. No cars crashed and I was able to pay attention to both the road and the story.
I really enjoyed Lisette Lecat as the narrator.
I liked the story too. This series is the opposite of the hard-boiled detective novels that I’m used to and that makes them fun. The characters are so matter of fact that they puzzle me…but in a good way. I often wonder what it would be like to move in a world where people flat-out said what was going on in their heads. It sounds refreshing, but so foreign I’m not sure I’d know how to cope.
The long and short of it: audiobooks and driving can mix.
