I enjoyed this story. Nothing earth shattering or world changing. Just a good story to pass the time while I walk my dog or go to the gym.
While the story content was interesting, the narrator's approach was too plodding. All the characters' "voices" were the same monotone. I even sped up the pace to 1.25x.
I don't care for books that try to be a movie. This book is just one action scene after another. Where is the story? And I really don't like sound effects in an audiobook. If the author can't build tension without the aid of noise, then they aren't capturing my imagination. There is a part in the story where there is some kind of shoot out and it sounds like an old TV show with cowboys and Indians all yelping and hooting - just ridiculous. I suppose I can't fault the narrator, since his skill at reading was fine and his voice was pleasant to listen to, but I couldn't bring myself to give this audiobook anything but one star.
