Audio is MISSING a vital section near the end

Luckily I always have a physical copy of the book as well as the audio, but if you're just listening to this, be aware that a vital 2 pages of plot explanation (p.375 after "aunt" until p.377 "They showed up") is MISSING entirely. Without it, the following few pages will probably be misunderstood and Antoinette's role not fully clear.

Anyway, this isn't the first Penguin audio book with such a problem and the last one I reported was fixed and my review was taken down, so I hope Penguin responds to this with an updated version of the audio, but if you're reading this review, they haven't done it yet.

very clever and completely absorbing

really enjoyed this. meticulously crafted. aspects of main characters and their stories didn't ring true at times. but it is fiction.

I loved this book!

I loved this book. The writing is exquisite; I found myself admiring phrases and descriptions. It is all about character and the complexities of people. It is about love and family, belonging and not belonging. The book is divided into two: section one is the Fates and it focuses on Lotto, his marriage with Mathilde and his career as a playwright; section two is the Furies and here we discover the life of Mathilde. Each section is told from the perspective of the main character of that section. The narrative is original and peppered throughout is Greek mythology. The complications of relationships reminds me of Greek stories. I’ll be looking for Lauren Groff’s two other novels now.
