This book likely is a great story. As a book to listen to - it's tough. There are a lot of characters and a lot of voices. I needed a cheat sheet of characters to keep the story straight. While it's 33 hours of narration, if you want to follow the story and all the characters you'll be repeating sections of the book. It takes a lot longer to fully ingest this story.
I eventually gave up on the listen and read the paperbook. I'll go back and listen again though.
Great book for fans of Girl With a Dragon Tatoo series. Similar genre - less creepy.
For someone who enjoys reading technical materials, this book would be great. For someone who reads to relax and get away from technical materials - the story is very interesting - but you can skip all but the first few chapters and the last 2 chapters.
This book is best for people who've already read her other books - or like me have read them all. It's a terrific conversation about the differences between a novel and a history book. I wish that more writer's of Gregory's abilities wrote history books.
