    Cayce Pollard is an expensive, spookily intuitive market-research consultant. In London on a job, she is offered a secret assignment: to investigate some intriguing snippets of video that have been appearing on the Internet. An entire subculture of people is obsessed with these bits of footage, and anybody who can create that kind of brand loyalty would be a gold mine for Cayce's client. But when her borrowed apartment is burgled, she realizes there's more to this project than she had expected.

    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.
