The main character (Edgar) was so unlikable and ineffectual that I would have stopped listening--except the writing was excellent. Around the fourth hour, Edgar stops being such a hapless jerk. As well, there's now his compatriots and their journey to concentrate on.
The biggest surprise for me was what I enjoyed the most: the writing about running. I hate running, so kudos to Walker for sucking me in!
As for the audio narrator, very good. Unfortunately there's a lot of yelling--or conversely, characters that speak softly--that it was hard to get the volume right. I was constantly turning it up or down, and jumping out of my skin when I didn't expect a voice blaring in my ear.

The word that keeps coming to mind is &quot;tight&quot; when describing this book. There's nothing extra, there's nothing that makes you think &quot;what? really?&quot; there's only rare cliches. It's just great writing.
The story line is super creative. After reading the description and then meeting the main character, I couldn't wait to see what happened. The author does a great job of not having you like the main character necessarily, and maybe not even rooting for him, but I hung on every word and couldn't wait to see what happened.
The narrator was superb.
I highly recommend this book.
