This is a classic tale of missing people, government corruption and a beautiful damsel in distress (of a sort). Unfortunately, I have to agree with the first review of this book. The story is a classic but the narrator is terrible. She sounds like a computer and her high pitched voice was a poor choice for a first person narrative with a male protagonist. The narrator's voice has almost no inflection, perhaps contributing to the impression that this was read by a computer. All of these issues increased the time it took me to become engrossed in the story. I'd suggest people try the other recording of this book now available on Audible but the sample of that also sounds a bit like a computer with many of the same issues. However, the other narrator is male if nothing else.
It is a wonderful story though and the fact that we could enjoy it in spite of the narration is probably an excellent indicator of just how great a tale it is.
