Home - Marilynne Robinson Very disappointing after the pleasure that was Gilead. I missed the first person voice of John Ames (as compared to the third person limited of Glory Boughton), and while it was nice to see the other side of the story (kind of), the way in which that story was told was definitely not my favorite.(I might also have been biased by the awful, awful audiobook. Maggi-Meg Reed is a horrible reader. She uses poetry voice, which annoys the shit out of me, and she makes Boughton sound like a toad instead of a nice old man. Read this one the old fashioned way.)
