So I'm listening to Addition by Toni Jordan read by Caroline Lee at the moment. I'm finding it a bit hard to get into (even after starting on the right disk). I think it's probably a good book, I'm just not sure how well it works as a story tape.
There are lots of descriptive passages where the obsessive compulsive character, Grace, counts everything. If I was reading Addition as a book I would probably read these sections faster, but on tape I have to take what I'm given. Which in this case is a five minute description of cutting up and eating a piece of lemon tart.
It's not all bad news though - I've just listened to a steamy sex scene where Grace is so transported that she is rendered unable to count. Golly.
