Stephen Hoye's narration was excellent but the material itself was way too lengthy and became boring. I would be cautious before picking up another Matthew Pearl book.
I'm still interested in techno thrillers and action based history novels.
Realistically tried to personify the characters without over playing it. I did appreciate the changes in character being reflected in his voice but he did not go overboard.
Way too long to build up the story. Plot was predictable and juvenile (at times). I gave up about 2/3s the way though. Tired of hearing the back story and minor character development. Motivations of the characters was too simplistic.
