This book is exactly like the others before it. Same story, same plot and same characters.
1st book in the series of 8. It was ok. The Narrator was really good, but everything else was boring. Kept finding myself drifting off onto other thoughts and would become lost of what was happening in the book. The plot was not very entertaining and at times was very predictable. If you read this don't bother reading the rest of the series. They are all the same right down to the same exact plot.
I know Ian Banks has a huge following but just could not get into this. would find at times my mind wandering and would then be lost to what was happening in the book.
If you listen to the previous books in this series they are all the same. There a few things thrown in to try to make the books interesting but it's all the same thing basically and it became boring very fast. I found myself falling asleep. I love the narrator he was amazing just the story line was uninteresting.
Love the story but this really should be redone with Joshua Swanson. Nick just was not able to bring the level of performance that Joshua did. Each character didn't seem to stand out from the rest and I honestly got tired of listening to Nick's voice. It completely took away from the story line. Parts of the book that were meant to be serious sounded just like the parts that were meant to bring some humor. .
