un-put-downable, if a little predictable
I could not put this one down! I bought it despite mixed reviews because I was curious about the idea of letters (no email, no cell phones, I think the book was writtin the mid-90s). Judith Michael did a great job of developing the relationship gradually and convincingly and building the suspense, and the narrator delivered with feeling (and a little help from technology in the editing!). There were a couple of unconvincing secondary characters and the narration in the second half was a bit annoying (very difficult for male narrators with deep voices to sustain 2 female characters' voices for long). I found most of the surprises predictable, though, unlike "Deceptions" which I thought was an exceptional book when I read it more than 10 years ago.

The reader does a fine job but I found the story to be slow paced and rather depressing. The characters are hard to relate to and the heroine is rather unlikeable. I wouldn't want to spend any time with her in real life. The detail of the theater gets more and more boring as the story drones on. I literally found myself falling asleep during large chunks of the book and really didn't care much. It is ok but nothing great and I was relieved when it was over.
