Look at all this awards! I am wondering why though. Yes it's an interesting premise and in general the writing is good. It's the level of SciFi, character development and mystery I usually enjoy.
Where this one labors is the story moves a bit slow (for me) and didn't reach a real strong build to the end as I had hoped. There was a lot of redundancy of stating the same details over and over that if omitted, (some editing maybe), would have made the story shorter which in this case, would help with some of the lag issues I was feeling while listening to the book. I would say the writing could have been more concise.
Yeah, you have to read (listen to) the next one to get the "whole story". I will listen to it and give it a try I guess. It's like I said in my title, "Just interesting enough" but in my opinion with some editing out of some of the redundancy, it might be a better book. Move the points along quicker please. Use the space for more character and premise detail and development.
The narrator was new for me. Good characterizations and his French characterizations felt authentic to my untrained ear. That is challenging to pull off sometimes. It seemed, (maybe my lack of knowing the true pronunciations), that a couple French words spoken as English were possibly mispronounced. Just a little detail that caught my attention. Not any kind of show stopper. Maybe my ear is "too American"?
I'm am hoping the next book is better because I am invested in the story now.
