This one had a bit of a slow start for me, but I found it intriguing enough to keep listening. By the end I was finding excuses for alone time so I could finish the book. I found it presented ideas artfully, delicately, and compassionately.
Although the rather obvious foreshadowing had me frustrated with the Riley's blindness to all the clues in the storyline, this book kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. The characters had layers and depth, and I grew to care for Riley, Danny, and Lisa. I had a hard time turning off the audiobook until I had completed the whole thing.
The one complaint I have is that it seemed Riley was so oblivious and Danny was so unsympathetic -- too much so to be realistic, I thought. But the twists and turns were terribly interesting even if many were predictable by the time all was revealed.
Narrator was very good.
This was an enjoyable read with many insightful moments. Feels a bit like the characters' lives were a lesson in hyperbole, but the author succeeded in making them seem more realistic than fairy tale. I will definitely read the sequel.
The storyline about courage was interesting and I enjoyed it. Some of the details about the events in the war were a little hard to follow, but the main characters were great. Narrator was believable and really quite wonderful.
Interesting and unique storyline. I thought it was well-written, and the narrator was very good -- struck just the right storytelling tone.
