“I thought it was you I saw coming up the hill,” she said, stretching out her hand.

He stopped and shook it; the touch of his big, firm fingers made her tremble. His hand was massive and hard as if it were hewn of stone. She looked up at him and smiled.

“Isn’t it cold?” she said. It is terrible to be desirous of saying all sorts of passionate things, while convention debars you from any but the most commonplace. (Excerpts from chapter 1.) (11 hr 8 min)

Very Enjoyable. The reader's narrating was visceral.

It no doubt will ring many bells with a good percentage of listeners. The realisation that love and relationships are really never up to our expectations. Because we simply do not accept that expectations that have basis on changing another human being simply cannot be fulfilled. And most importantly that the feeling is always mutual, even if often one party is quite prepared to oversee everything and just carry on while the other insists in making their feelings know. All is so well captured in this book. And the narrator is fantastic!

love overload

(3 Sterne)

The woman was seeking love in absurd amounts. It became monotonous. But the reader was really great to listen to!

Another great reading!

Excellent character analysis about what happens when a passionate, emotional person falls in love with a person's beauty and does not wait long enough to find out that this person is her opposite: unemotional, objective, and incapable of strong passion. But there are also many other differences between them, as if this is not enough.
