As previous reviewers have mentioned, this is very well-written. The language used is incredibly descriptive and artistic. Unfortunately, for me, that is the book's only virtue. Everything in this novel seems negative or depressing. Nobody is happy, nothing is pretty, everything is very dark. Yeah, life may be like that, but I certainly don't find it entertaining to "read" about it!
Additionally, the plot is rather anticlimactic. I kept listening because I thought something interesting was going to happen, but it just never did. This may be fine for some people, but I found myself nodding off while I was listening to most of the story. This may be due in part to the narrator, who did a decent job but seemed to whine more than anything else. This can make or break an audiobook for me and, unfortunately, it broke it here.
