I wanted to like it.
People who are just getting into book reading or audiobook listening might like this book. But it didn't quite work for me. The writing style was somewhat lackluster and the characters were one dimension and lacked depth. After trying to get into the story and trying hard to care for the characters, I gave up.
The performance itself was fine. The voice was clear and I had no trouble understanding the narration.
It actually failed to spark any reaction from me. As I mentioned earlier, the story wasn't able to build any interest in me.
I received this book free of charge from the author / narrator / publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.
