    I am a fan of Dean's I have read about half of his books. Dean entertains and usually includes a strong moral message. This audiobook would have rated 4 stars from me, except for two reasons. One-Narration-The woman narrating the book has a good voice but she is awful when it comes to male voices. Very distracting at first, but you do get used to it. Two-Length-The story is good but it is way too long, Dean could have easily cut it by a third. I found myself saying "there are a few sentences we could have done without" and "Yay, finally disc 15!" Dean spends too much time minutely describing minor characters. One more point I know movie producers make money for product placement, but do authors? Dean mentions Arco gas, Mr. Goodbar, Maxwell House, Dinty Moore, Farmer John among many other product placements. More a curiosity than a criticism.

    This was a very quick paced, twist and turn book. I loved it.

    I enjoyed the premiss of this novel but unfortunately IMO the narration really dragged the story down. A lot of potentially exciting and chilling points but it just didn't come through given the tone of the reader.

    I am almost on disc 9 and and still do not like the narrator. I think I would enjoy the story alot more. She has no enthusiasm (drones) and her trying mens voices sounds ridiculous. I will hopefully stick it out because it is a decent story. Not one of the best but that could be the narrator. I have listened to many of his books and adore him as an author.
