After a rather long dry spell spent with books I was rather disappointed in, this was a welcome return to pure pleasure. I had read many of the positive reviews and had high hopes, but I've listened to several that also were reviewed well and I wish I had spent my time more constructively in the end. The Golem and the Jinni is truly magical and enchanting and I was left longing for more when it ended. Not that the ending was lacking, but the experience was so enjoyable I wanted it to continue!
After four hours I was intrigued... After eight hours I wished I had really not started this book but was determined to see it through... After twelve hours I just wished they would have killed each other at the beginning and saved us all the agony... I did finish it, but only because I thought there might be SOME redeeming quality in either of them... I was wrong.
Performances were outstanding... Just too bad the characters were so, so, I don't even know how to describe how twisted and unredeemable...
Again, the performances were great, and it was an interesting exercise to think about how this could have even possibly been worth my time, but I just can't get over feeling abused.
This is only my 2nd written review after 50+ listens... It basically pi--ed me off...story wise and loss of my time wise... At least the author got a reaction out of me...
