I really like the premise of the story and so wanted to listen to this book. However, I quit after five chapters. Carlotta Montanari's Italian accent was so distracting that I simply could not follow the book. Accent's are great for character dialogue, but not narration. Why the Publisher/Ennis chose this method of narration is beyond me. Be sure and listen to the sample before you purchase. I should have. I wish I could get my money/credit back on this one.
I am a fan of William Dietrich. This review is not directed at the book but at the quality of the narration. At one point Robert Fass' attempt at a German accent sounded like Kermit the Frog. Horrible. I couldn't take it anymore and stopped listening.
