The reader pronounced every nuanced vowel in a way that didn't feel effortless, but forced. I would have preferred a different reader.
The story was good, and I could see it being a great read...just not a great listen.
I listen to audiobooks in the car commuting to work and although I wanted to like this book, I couldn't focus on DC traffic and hold the story at the same time. I found myself having to re-listen to chapters because I had no idea what was going on. For me, the story had too many characters with too much jargon for a semi-passive listen - it requires more focus than I could give it while driving.
Yes! Apart from the superb narrative, I'd revisit this book for one reason... Bronson Pinchot. I was amazed at how well he read this novel; at times it felt like it was narrated by a full cast. Wonderful portrayal of all the many characters and a great story to boot.
The one with the tiger, but I don't want to spoil it... just listen.
