I find it fascinating how this book divides people. After listening to it, I can definitely see why many would label it boring. But it really goes to show you different reasons for reading certain books. If you are expecting a "beach read"-paced thriller, this is not the book for you. If you are interested in a lilting, introspective work which weaves a quiet spell of language and mystery, please give it a try. Somehow the combination of conspiracy, the contemporary setting, a poetic sensibility, and the narrators wonderfully soothing voice all blended to make this book beyond the sum of its parts. I loved it and miss it now that it is over.
