I joined Audible specifically to get this book. I had attempted to read it for several years but just couldn't commit. I found it very easy to listen to, and would catch up on the footnotes every couple of days. Some of the footnotes were critical to me following the story, so I am glad I took the time to read them.
This book was above my head, and I am sure I missed things that I might catch if I listen again (and again), but the story and characters are so complex I LOVED what I did get. The detail, the description of addiction and recovery-amazing!
Probably the most beautiful book I have ever been exposed to, I can't recommend it enough.
-I'd also like to mention that I thought the narrator was awesome. Character distinction without distraction-bravo!
The thriller aspect of the book was good-nice plot. It really should be categorized as a romantic/erotic thriller. The amount of sex was kind of silly and comprised 50% of the narrative. I found the numerous descriptors of male genitalia entertaining, especially compared to the fact only one was used for it's female counterpart(her "sex").
And really....erotic thriller? To each their own I guess.
Incredible imagery. Unique story with romance that I did not find annoying.
Interesting take on time travel. Good story. I can see how people think the end is rushed, but the resolution is sufficient. Very long, but I enjoyed it.
Not interesting enough. I found her character kind of boring and the excitement/mystery aspect lacking-no surprises here. I have read other series(a fan of murder/mystery)where I wasn't in love with the first book, but there was some sort of hook that made me want to continue the series to completion. Not the case here. The narration really annoyed me, which did not add to the experience either.
Great sci-fi story that will make anyone that grew up in the '80s smile. Not the most complex story line but I enjoyed every minute of it. Great imagery. Good narration.
I was hooked the whole time. Incredibly dark-just when you think it can't get any worse, another level of horror occurs. Good until the very last minute, I will be starting the next book in the series today.
I hated myself for not just stopping. "Seriously", "you've got to be kidding me", "unbelievable"-all words I uttered out loud more than once while listening to this. I had to laugh at the ridiculousness of it. The narration and effects were horrendous! The descriptions of the museum were the only redeeming qualities. Of course, in the last 10 minutes they throw in a tidbit to make you curious about the next book. I wanted to find a series to get into, and see reviews that some prefer later books in the series. I think I'll have to shop around before I give in to my curiosity and continue the series.
Interesting story and main character. Saw alot of it coming and the end seemed rushed compared to the rest of the novel, but my favorite GF so far.
Predictable, but I liked the way the story developed. That Dublin Murder Squad would be unmanned if a (remotely) normal childhood was an employment requirement.
The third one....again some questionable premises, and unlikeable characters but maybe that's her hook. I still keep listening.
