    Would make an excellent LMN movie to watch on a lazy rainy Sunday. A good read!!

    The book really accepted my travel time in a nice way. I enjoyed the story and can't help wondering how the author can keep so many details in mind. The narration was fine though, I found I had to adjust the volume in a few places.

    First audio book and I was not disappointed. Narration was very good and I enjoyed the twists and turns of the plot. Maybe a little predictable, but i had fun with it, trying to predict what happens and then waiting to see if I am correct!

  • Suzanne N

  • Michelle W

    This was a different story from what I usually read. Great one to keep you hanging on and the narrator was really into it.

    The book did not stray far from the typical production line templatized fiction that is common today. The author added a nice twist at the end however all in all it was not very engaging. Had I not been on a 30 hour road trip I would not have listened to the book.
