I didn't care for the narrator, she didn't do well with different voices. Honestly, I almost didn't finish after the first few chapters. However, I was already interested and wanted to know what happened, so I endured. I'm glad I did, as I enjoyed the story. Some areas were a short on detail (for me) and in others too much, but overall it was good. I would have enjoyed it more had I read it rather than listened to the audible version.

But I just didn't. I heard a review for the book on NPR and it sounded compelling. I actually really like the concept of the story. I also enjoy the story telling device of alternating narrators every chapter. But there was much I didn't enjoy. A variety of characters were introduced for absolutely no reason. Some prominent characters stayed woefully underdeveloped. The last third of the book was forcefully contrived. And yes, the narration was really awful. I feel terrible saying so because it came across as an earnest effort, but this author should really stick to writing and hire a professional for her audiobooks. The author had some great ideas and some of this book is beautifully written, but ultimately it fell annoyingly flat.
