Pickpick

Nafkote Tamirat's The Parking Lot Attendant is another book that I wish I'd read to pick up all of the details (rereading for clarification is SO much harder on audio). Anyway, I enjoyed The Parking Lot Attendant for its development of character and the insidious way that the unnamed narrator is drawn into a system that is beyond her capacity. ⠀

New note: after reading some reviews on Goodreads, maybe the things I missed just weren't there?

UnabridgedPod @zest_thereader No shame and no comparisons!! I‘d love to know: What did you read? Did you enjoy it? 4mo
zest_thereader @Unabridged The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson. Yeah, it was a good read, many of the twists were unpredictable but I found half of the book kinda slow. 4mo
UnabridgedPod @zest_thereader Oh, I like that one—my husband agrees with your review! Will you read the rest of the trilogy? 4mo
zest_thereader @Unabridged Yup, I have already half of the second book, I have kept it on hold for sometime though 4mo

As entertainment this is a fine novel. It‘s fast-paced and interesting. The ending is a non-ending in that the story just stops. I was, after all, a bit disappointed with WASHINGTON BLACK.
