I enjoyed the story but it seemed to be rushed towards the end, as if the author was in a hurry to finish it and start something else. Shortly after I listened to this I listened to Hotwire and found the same rushed ending. Presumably the author feels this adds to the story and provides a climatic end but as I'd worked out who did what etc already for me it just seemed like the author wanted to finish and move on.
Interesting, and scary concept if it were true! I enjoyed this book although did find a few of the descriptive paragraphs a bit long winded.
Once I got used to it the narratives from different characters perspectives was an interesting aspect although it did then result in some pretty much word for word repetition making me think I'd hit the back button or a section had downloaded twice.
A lot of people say how scary the book is - well if it were a true scenario then yes, very scary. Maybe I've read too many horror / monster books and am not easily impressed.
Just when it seemed the story was coming to a conclusion there would be another twist and off it would go again - much to my pleasure I have to say.
I would recommend this if your looking for a long but interesting story and like monster / zombie / vampire type stories.
Yes there are descriptions of nazis war camps, death trains and related atrocities.
Yes some of the characters are racist.
The book does not in anyway condone those attitudes or behaviours but it could be hard reading / listening for some people.
I enjoyed the book but was irritated by Anna Travis more than in other books with her character in. Really, she is meant to be a fairly experienced officer by now not some emotional, naive, love sick teenager.
While the story line was predictable I did enjoy listening and will listen to more in the series.
