What members say
Would you listen to An Urban Affair again? Why?
Yes. It's introspective, not action packed. But the journey the characters take proves powerful at the end.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It's slow and detailed. The narrative switches between the main male and female protagonists. I wasn't sure I liked the characters all the time, but I felt like I knew them.
Any additional comments?
I really liked the narration.

How could the performance have been better?
The narrator of this book is a computer. It was painful to listen to the first 5 minutes of the book. There is no inflection and emotion in narration of this novel. There needs to be a disclaimer when narration is done by automation. I want a refund!
