I liked the story and the characters but the editing made it hard to fully enjoy. I prefer audiobooks in which the chapters have a long pause at the end, as this book has. But, this was the first book I have ever listened to that made it very clear where the reader stopped for a break or the day and resumed and where re-takes were made and edited in. Both the volume and tone of the reader would change abruptly and annoyingly for either, OFTEN.

LOVE the book except the Jennifer character who is supposed to tell us imbeciles the difference between right and wrong--because she is female and knows these things. I just was confused by the character's seeming hypocrisy, and this overall trend of having "strong women" in non-traditional roles but still playing mommy/the voice of reason/the moral compass. I wrote Taylor and asked him if Jennifer eventually becomes less of this. Evidently he thought I was mad she wasn't a "blood thirsty killer." Yup. Those are his words. So: Since I'd sooner douche with Drano than give this man another dime, let me be clear: GREAT writing, great plotting, intricate knowledge of topics, 90% great characters. My review of his work is mostly very positive. My review of Taylor? Just don't question his choices...he gets mean.
