I love listening to Audible books but this novel was so tedious that I had to stop listening. I didn't find any of the characters interesting enough to inspire me to like them, dislike them, or compel me to listen more to learn about them. I'm honestly not sure who this one would appeal to.
The book didn't turn me off to other books in this genre but, as a displaced Californian who thought it would be fun to listen to a story about the Bay Area -- a place where I grew up and could relate to, it sadly failed me. And I found that terribly disappointing.
I thought the performance didnt enhance the book, but maybe that wasnt possible. He gave it a good try, but the plot was lacking.
I didnt find anything in the plot that made me want to continue. If I were playing editor, I would have asked for better character development to inspire some type of feeling from the listener. And a plot that evolved more quickly to draw in the listener. I didn't get either.
I regret writing a negative review, but I've listened to endless titles on Audible, some better or worse than others. This is the only one that I literally had to shut off because I couldn't be drawn in, even after giving it more time than I normally would have. I gave it a big try without successl.
