A long listen

There are some books that one listens to or reads and hates when they come to an end. But this is one that I turned off after 3 hours of trying hard to get involved with the characters. Up to that 3 hour line I hadn't discovered a story line or even an interesting narrative, just a long, long whine going nowhere much. It may of course suddenly taken off after 3 hours and just 5 minutes more, so apologies to the author if it did. I have to say its a disappointment as my two books per month are never quite enough for the whole month so I really regret wasting 50% of that allowance.
