The writing was plodding, the story tedious, the characters uninteresting. Repairman Jack needs an overhaul. I blame myself for purchasing a book whose two major plots focused on such obvious themes: a nun having an affair (old fashioned--she would have left the convent if she had half a mind) and a dubious cult modeled after Scientology. Better would be less flatulent, detailed writing (give me a break--a fat villain with a taste for liverwurst and onion sandwiches), a heroine on the verge of a miscarriage, and some dubious racial slurs, whether or not intended. I intend to request a refund.
No redeeming qualities other than the blurb promoting the book and the five star rating other readers gave it.
I can't imagine anyone who would not find this book tedious.
There could be fewer characters and generations; speedier, tighter plot development; more suspense instead of the promise of it.
The narrator was excellent.
All of them.
