The reader did his best, but the story is confusing; the characters without substance; and the scenes of racial prejudice more in line with myths of the Old South rather than frontier Idaho. First time in 20 years of audio book listening that I failed to finish a novel. Skip it.
Already listening to the Anne Rice novel about the werewolves.
I have no complaints about the reader - a nice, trained voice and good story teller.
As many as you'd let me.
The reader was competent, keeping my interest in what would have otherwise been a tiresome read.
If nothing else, this brings home the varied tastes of audible listeners. I thought the characters were two dimensional, without any depth or warmth. The protagonist's life, far from being a glimpse into a different type of mind, was tedious. I found myself not caring what happened to him. Generally, the motivation for character behavior was unclear and the storyline (especially that pertaining to forced medical treatment of employees) unbelievable. I like the idea but believe a short story might have been a better vehicle.
I can generally muddle through any production but I kept wanting to quit this one. But for the reader, I would have.
