The book was enjoyable but in the manner of a cheap vanilla ice cream cone; nothing remarkable or extraordinary. And the ending was a too convenient monologue that neatly tied up most of the loose ends. A few mysteries were left unsolved, leaving me wondering if I'd missed key clues and should have figured some of it out myself. But, not being too dreadfully invested in the story, it was easy to turn it off and not worry about the faceless, never-named antagonist.
As this is my first audio book, I can't really rate the narrator. I was pleased, though, to be able to easily follow the narrator as he switched his tone, cadence, and in one case, accent, to switch from one character to another.
I was looking for a book that would draw me in and keep me on the treadmill long after my 30 minutes were up; and this was it! It's a fascinating story, well written, well presented, and beautifully narrated. My one regret was that I listened to it; it's the type of book I'd normally save for a special full-day reading on the beach. Mental images from the book have stayed with me long after the book was done. And I found myself really captivated by her story and caring about how she was going to come out in the end
