Playing devil's advocate her, but surely book is meant to be read. Therefore it is still a poor book but maybe a good radio play? I am biased though I hated The Keeper of Lost Things and would rather listen to the Shipping Forecast on a loop than listen to it as an Audiobook.
I'm another one who didn't like Keeper of Lost Things. I didn't hate it but got less than half way through and thought is that it and gave up. I listened to the hype and thought I'd love it and was quite disappointed. Interesting though it makes a better audio book.
I must admit I listen to nearly all my books when pottering around the house so if it’s a bit dull it doesn’t really matter. I would have struggled to persevere with reading this one as the subject switches constantly from the main story line, the secondary story line and the random short stories. The different voices made that easier. Plus I think I listen faster than I read so possibly would have given up on reading a book that just wasn’t ending.
