    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tell Me No Lies to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the printed version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both the male and female protagonists. The ying and yang of their characters complimented each other perfectly.


    Have you listened to any of Laural Merlington’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though this is a shorter 'read' than I usually endeavor, this book fascinated me with its description of how some archealogical artifacts could be dated and could be used as a political tool. The two main protagonists characters appear initially to be polars apart in their ethics and history, yet as the story progressed, the Eastern philosophical context of the ying and the yang being necessary to create and heal a whole fairly jumps out at the reader, without even having to think on it. The story line flows well, showing the intricasies of truth in dating artifacts as interwoven as the espionage of politcal jockeying. There is action aplenty and thought provocking twists and turns throughout.

    The reader was consistant in her portrayal of characters as well as interesting in her inflections. Even the 'boring' portions of the archaeological explainations was made easier to attend. Overall, this was a 'can't wait to get in the car and listen' kind of book.
