I had a very hard time getting into this book but I persevered. It is the first of the series I have listened to. Perhaps it is just not my thing. I found that it dragged for the first couple of hours and that it took a long time to tie things together. By the end my opinion improved but I donlt think I will listen to others in the series.
I listen to a lot of books during my commute to and from work, 60 min each way. I enjoy many types, mysteries, sci fi, I just could not get in to this one. I think it requires too much concentration to follow and I just could not commit. The terms are unknown, and if you miss a definition you must go back. On at least 3 occasions I thought my ipod had skipped as I was totally lost. I gave up.
I really enjoyed the first two. But this one was long, I almost stopped listening 2 or 3 times. Seems to be a lot more descriptive narrative not required for story. So many characters make it hard to keep track of them. If I did not have the attachment of listening to first two, I would not have finished it. Echo effect not good, narrator grows on you, but he should have pronounced Kovacs, the same as in the first two.
