Remember those books written in the 60's and 70's; 80 percent of the story going on in the head of the protagonist. What action or dialogue there might be would be the same thing over and over again. By the end of the book I was hoping that the two protagonists wouldn't make it out of the storm alive. Which was a shame I like the concept of strangers thrown together by disaster; and other than her inexplicable mood changes and fits of temper the female protagonist of the book was inspired. The male protagonist extremely disappointing, he projected an image about as heroic as that of Flounder in Animal House. Though admittedly his actions were courageous if not always competent.
This might be the most disappointed I've been with any selection of Audible fiction. The setting pulled me in and convinced me to purchase the audio book. Then the slow pace of the narrative and the repetitive nature of both action and dialogue delivered practically nothing but the setting..

The answer the text offers may be unclear, but the text continues to pose the question as Eric, who may not even know he needs saving, helps out a young girl whose needs are greater than he could have imagined.
Roorbach' writing style and ability to create drama here really shine. It is clipped, taut and continues to surprise.
My only wish is that Roorbach who has the chops to read his own work would've been the full voice of the text.
