This will take some time and careful listening to maximize the effect. I enjoyed it immensely, but found myself rewinding quite a bit to figure things out and to appreciate the writing style. It's quite subtle and conceptual. A really nice addition to the literature of young women's coming of age stories.
It reads as suspense, but if you looking for a resolution to the mystery you will be disappointed.
i became distracted by the romantic angle and didn't feel it was necessary for DeMille to include the lovey-dovey business in this otherwise suspenseful terrorist/chase plot.
and this is a long one! much longer than any average round-trip road trip i take. so i found myself listening to smaller bits each day driving to work just to get thru the story.
I listen to audiobooks while commuting and waiting in line(s). Most of the time I listen to suspense books. My expectations for this book genre was completely satisfied by this author and the narrator. Sure the plot is weak at points and sometimes the pace is off, but this is entertainment not literature! In particular I really enjoyed the sibling interaction!
