To move it along.
Any short one if there had been one.
It was an intriguing plot/mystery.
This was a 4 hour story stretched into 13 hours for no good reason.
Take my review with a grain of salt because I only heard about 3 hours worth before I gave up. Like others who gave low ratings have said (I wish I'd listened), this author goes on and on and on with needless and totally uninteresting details about mundane and uninteresting scenes and events. It reminds me of the books my high school English teacher used to make us read, not for the plot but for appreciation of the language. Yeah, nice language, nice vivid description, nice prose, but boring, boring, boring.
Sorry, but I just don't share the majority opinion of this book. Half way through this very long book, the two main characters are still infants (!), and nothing has happened to generate interest in them or the other characters. Usually with boring audiobooks I stick it out to the end, but I just couldn't take the boredom of this one beyond the half-way point. Take this review with a grain of salt since I didn't finish the book, but make sure you know what you're getting into before you spend a credit on it.
This ostensible whodunit became a who-cares-who-dun-it. The author needed much more character development and much less description of every detail in rooms, offices, and other settings. It was hard to care about the victim, the investigator, or any of the suspects. The best part was the end -- not the ending, "The End."
