I liked that it was set in Toronto, which isn't a common city for a plot based in an academic setting. I do think that the main female character should have been better developed. I found her to be so mousy, meek and inexperienced that it was not plausible that she was also a brilliant student who had been accepted by Harvard, and by a well-known professor as a thesis advisor. I struggled to resolve this contradiction as I listened to the book.
Excellent voice for narration. He brought out the strong character of the professor, yet also managed to capture the young and inexperienced personality of the female lead.
A little better than average.
The plot had many twists, and the fact that the lead character was not a rock-em-sock-em heroic action figure made it more interesting.
The voice was a bit too monotone.
There are few books set in Pittsburgh, so it was interesting to hear about the various neighborhoods.
