Confusing and the ending is not enough

Someone recommended this to me, and though I typically like this kind of story, I found this one very confusing and hard to follow. I agree with the other reviewer--there were parts that made me want to keep listening, and some parts that were so dull or confusing I'd find my mind wandering.

I found the end very disappointing. I really wanted a lot more information about the characters.

The performances were all excellent.

I don't think I'd recommend this book, and I'm pretty generous usually with recommendations.

Liked parts of it

I waited a full week after I finished this to write a review. There were parts I really liked about the book.Mainly the storyline of the main characters. But I found the numerous characters and the flashbacks in time confusing and annoying. I think the story premise was very intersting, but at the end, (which I did not like), I was glad I was done with the book. However, I have found myself thinking about it during the week. Other reviewers have done a great job of stating the story, and I agree with a lot of the reviewers. Candidly, I'm from Arizona so I thought I'd be fascinated by the logistics of the locaton. I was not. Read at your own risk.
