I enjoyed the story, as I have with all of James Rollins' Sigma Force novels. However, the narration was awful. All the accents sounded Asian, including the Italians. I think I would have enjoyed this story much more if I would have read it myself.
The story was random ramblings of a woman's memories of her childhood, scattered with ramblings from her mentally ill mother's journal, with bits and pieces of current time fit in. I could not get into the story even after listening for 2 hours.
The book jacket makes it sound like an interesting story.
I love Ellen DeGeneres...and I was very excited that she was reading her own book. The story itself rambled on from one stream of thought to the next, none of which were very interesting.
Her tone was drab, the moments she went off on tangents (one involved me having to listen to her eating an apple) were awful.
I was incredibly disappointed.
There were a couple funny moments, and some good points, but they were few and far between.
