"The View From Castle Rock is meticulously crafted; elegant, stylish, a superb reading not only of life's vicissitudes but of the human need to connect past to present, to make sense of chaos and to find consolation in what can be salvaged from sorrow." (London Free Press)
"Munro has, as usual, written a lovely book and is serenely well-honed in her craft." (Globe and Mail)

Where's the plot?
I found myself eager to finish this so I could start a book with more of a plot. I had hoped that Munro would invent more of one, but perhaps she did not want to stray too far from her actual family history.
Man Booker Prize Winner
I wish Audible had more of Alice Munro's books on their site, she is an amazing writer: subtle, down to earth, and profound, at once.

Having gone back to this audio book and starting at Part 2 of the download I feel I may have been somewhat harsh in condemning
the whole book. The second part is certainly very listenable and a far cry from the tedium of the first.So a partial recommendation marred by the horrors of the first couple of hours.
