I stop listening because it starts to irritate me too much and I start feeling it is a waste of my time.
I find the characters uninteresting at best and mostly pitiful and pretentious. There is no character development plus no clear direction of where this is going to nor is it interesting enough to keep listening to discover where this is going to.
The authors' fat phobia and obsession with Houellebecq is annoying me.
It is possible to write a book about a despicable character and even have this character tell the story as Nabakov showed us with Lolita. But this story just fails to become interesting.
There is nothing wrong with the narrator and the narration.
