    This was so boring I couldn't even finish listening to it (and I'm used to listening to heavy and complex literature). I'm sure the book ends well as his others do, but to wade through it was just not worth the effort and I sent it back. Plus, my overall opinion about this author is that he doesn't write women well - he doesn't understand them and they all act like foolish idiots, which gets on my nerves a bit. I probably will never read any of his works again, though I honestly gave several of his books a try.
