My personal opinion is that two recent notable books are simply not meant to be listened to: Richard Powers’ “The Overstory” and “Circe” by Madeline Miller. Audible’s rating for the these two narrated versions is quite high. For the former, I had a problem with the switch back and forth between stories which was not signaled by chapter headings. I’m not able to point out a specific problem with the second audiobook. I just decided after listening for a bit that I needed print.
On the other hand, “The House of Broken Angels” by Luis Alberto Urrea is read by its author and is simply marvelous. Part of the reason is the flow of gorgeous language where the exact flow of facts is not critical.
