The plot was not too bad but the whole story was weak. This could have been a 3 or 4 hour book but it stretched way too long. Not enough substance to keep it going. Really depressing and repetitive. I would not recommend this book.
I had no problem with sound quality or an "echo"
I found this book a depressing slog of buildups and disappointing anticlimaxes. A roller coaster ride with long, drawn-out, hauls to the top followed by disappointing drops; leading nowhere, except to more incessant whining, few if any tangible clues as to what is real and what is not, and failures; all along, to validate clues and ground the reader.
I found the characterization of the husband annoying and unpleasant, which made me wonder if the author intended him to be really unpleasent or if the reader was misreading him.
All in all I found this a frustrating and depressing read.
I do not know how this made the best sellers list. In concept it should've been an amazing tale. Unfortunately it misses the mark and you are left waiting for something to happen. The narration is good enough if not a bit slow. But, how can it not be slow when sluggishness is the tone of the story.
I'm not sure how this garnered so many stars, but for sure their taste and mine don't mesh. I'm returning this book and hoping to use my credit on something else. I'm about 2-3 hours into the book and it's time to pull the plug!
This was a pretty painful read. It could have been much shorter, and the end was a huge disappointment for me.
I spend a lot of time seeking out the perfect story worthy of my credit. I enjoy suspense thrillers w/ a kick of satire. I'm a picky listener.
It was like I had to live through every grueling detail about a mug or a person or this terrible memory loss of the main character. I wanted to slam my head into the keyboard.
Majority of the book was spent fast forwarding to the end of the chapter. It concluded an hr before the end and even that explanation was anti climactic! BOOOO to the author for causing suicidal thoughts cuz an ice pick to my head would have been more satisfying than this s-l-o-w read.
I enjoyed this book, although I wouldn't describe it as one of the most suspenseful books I ever read (I found it on a book list of suspenseful reads). In any case, it was well done and held my interest from start to finish. The narrator is excellent. It's definitely worth a listen.
There is a lot of repetition and although I understand some is needed it became so tedious! And the ending was not very satisfactory.
