Carson McCullers - The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter (audio)

I found this unabridged audio book at a library and decided to listen to it.

First Sentence:IN THE town there were two mutes, and they were always together.

My rating: 3 ♥

I like the story overall. I like the parts with Mr. Singer in it. The central character of the story. All the characters in this book are well-developed. So well-developed that you can see their point of view. I just wish there was more plot to the story.

I was once asked to choose between character and plot, and I thought I would like character. But after hearing this book, I decided I want plot. Well-develop character can only be taken so far, but for a more entertaining read, I definitely need plot.

Favorite parts: When Mick thinks she's in love with Mr. Singer and followed him around everywhere.
