Based on the high reviews I figured this would be a compelling novel. Hardly. It started out and continued with an hysterical woman babbling on about all kinds of nonsense. I had to go back twice and make sure I wasn't in the middle of the story because it was so disjointed that it was impossible to follow. Eventually I grew tired waiting for it to make sense or for the woman to stop with the over the top histrionics so after 40 minutes I just gave up. If I purchased the book I would have asked for a refund.
There must be some people who enjoyed this novel based on the high ratings, but I would not suggest purchasing it blindly without being familiar with the author's work. It's definitely a very different format and targeted to a specific group - not sure who exactly but not your typical reader/listener.
Doomsday Key had some interesting storylines and there was a lot of action but it felt too much like the author was trying to copy Dan Brown's playbook, but wasn't nearly as good at it. There was an attempt at character development but it seemed forced and I never cared that much about any of them. It's a decent listen but based on the other ratings I expected better.
