The Lacuna - Barbara Kingsolver I am sad to say that I couldn't finish the book....yet.

It's a beautifuly written book, I understand the rave reviews, but I got to disc ten (audiobook) and I just didn't care anymore. Then I checked how many more discs I had to go, counted six, and I lost the will to live. Part of the problem may have been that the Author read the audiobook. My suggestion is she might want to stick with her strengths.

So I'm putting it aside for now. I'm moving onto something else, when that's done, I'll try the Lacuna again.
