I really enjoyed this audio book -- it's very long, though, so is a major time commitment. I liked it more than friends who read the book liked it, leading me to believe that when you can be carried along by the good performance you can overlook some clunky plot stuff.
One of the better-plotted stories, and a great setting in Oaxaca. Meyer is there throughout, which always gives good balance. Some unnecessarily sordid notes and some non-PC stances, of course, but all in all a good one. Fantastic voice performance, complete with Mexican, French and Midwestern accents.
All these good reviews are baffling. This was interminably long -- I remover looking at the time left and groaning when it was 8:21 *to go*. The extraneous details, the ridiculous plotting, the unlikeable characters -- just terrible.
