Decent

Overall fairly good nothing spectacular nothing revolutionary but the characters were consistent the story did deviate you could feel somewhat relatable but not so much that you became the character if you want a fairly short read for a vacation or trip on a plane I’d recommend this will I re read it probably not but I thought it was worth the time to listen to.
