Since I want to spend my credits wisely, I always read reviews and listen to the sample before I purchase a title. I did the same thing before selecting this title but it turned out to be a stinker anyway. The execution doesn't live up to the promise of the premise (not intended as a pun, but there you have it). The heroine is shrill and whiny. That's the way the narrator has portrayed her, but I think his interpretation is faithful since almost everything she says is insipid. I don't care for any of the characters and I am four hours into this thing.
The writing is competent but not inspired. There is a lot of telling without showing, which is the hallmark of workmanlike writing. Certainly, there are times when telling is perfectly appropriate and advances the story. However, this novel relies entirely on telling and tedious conversation, making it read like a bad police procedural.
I have fallen asleep every time I try to listen to this book. To summarize...... s n o r e.................

I wanted to get through listening to this book just for the sake of not giving up on it, but the narrator's voice changes took me out of the story every time :/
