Wonderful novel with excellent narration
This was a great listen! Although it might be notable for Edgar Allen Poe's inclusion in the book as a cadet at West Point, the novel really stands on it's own even if he weren't the character who helps the protagonist investigate murders and mayhem on the West Point campus. The narrator voices the characters well, and it was an all-round pleasure to listen to.

Could not get through it
I would recommend they first listen to the "sample". The gentleman narrating appeals to many, but I find his voice difficult to listen to. I found the story to be slow, convoluted, and ponderous for my taste, and was surprisingly annoyed by the repeated reference to "Reader", the Poe (and other) quotes, and the attempts to create other "voices" by the narrator. Others have loved both the performance and the story. I did not finish the first half, and will be returning it. The three stars were given as I felt the narrator was trying, and I didn't think it fair to give one star to a book I had not finished. It and I were NOT a good fit.
