Bellwether - Connie Willis, Kate Reading Bellwether is light, funny, romantic, and one of Willis' most brilliant books. Every word of this story is ultimately meaningful in some way -- although it may often seem frivolous or meandering, nothing is wasted. By the way, ignore the shelvings for "fantasy" and "science fiction" -- there's nothing fantastical in this story.The audiobook is quite good, but I'd recommend reading it in print over listening to it, because hearing the audio emphasizes how passive and curmudgeonly our narrator often is.
