The first novel "The Pastel City" is wonderful. It flows, and you can follow it. And then you enter a never ending bog. I am not sure if it's the story, the character names, or some other factor, but I was not able to reasonably focus on the next two novels - nor most of the short stories. The language in the writing was wonderful, but it loses something by being read aloud.
In text form, perhaps.
Simon Vance was fine.
The author tends to repeat key understandings in the story (e.g. *no spoiler* Chpt 1 - Bobby likes chocolate; Chpt 34 - Bobby was very fond of chocolate). It becomes distracting and very much like the fluff put into a college term paper after three books...
Well done. Very listenable.
