Intriguing, but easy to figure out

The content was intriguing, but the mystery was easily solved in my opinion. It's a nice short piece to read on a plane ride or something. Easy to listen to.

Anti climatic

You can guess the end as soon as the book starts. It drags and drags.

Great Narration.

Would recommend this to anyone interested in the strange or unusual that goes on in the world.

Decent suspense story but...

Slightly turgid prose and poor narration just didn't do it justice. Always difficult having an adult do a child's voice but this one also had an Australia twang. The main adult voice was flat and did nothing to engage the listener.
