I couldn't stop listening. Never a dull moment. The accents sounded genuine but easy to listen too.
This book is contains interesting characters and promises to deliver thought-provoking concepts and an interesting interweaving of earthly and otherworldly conflicts among the characters. It also promises a suspensful plot and supporting subplots that have the possibility for a brilliant conclusion. Unfortunately, the author does not fulfill these promises. The author fails miserably to resolve any conflict among herself as the narrator and her most interesting "otherworldly" characters and, as a result, fails to bring the story to any satisfying conclusion for the reader. I was extremely disappointed with the author's lame attempt to end the story. The author teases the reader along with suspensful writing but than slaps the reader in the face with a lame ending that provides neither conflict resolution nor any satisfying conclusion for the reader. It's almost as if the author just gave up or was too lazy to put forth the effort to conclude the story in a professional manner. The book fails to provide any payoff for the time the reader has invested. The book appears to be nothing more than a precursor for a future book or a transparent teaser to garner television ratings for "Kingdom Hospital," Stephen King's offspring television series that is loosely based upon this book. Perhaps any conflict resolution may be found in the television series or the author expects people to watch the television series in order to discover the story's true resolution. I paid for a book containing a full story and it appears two-thirds of the story is missing. All in all, I'm sorry I wasted my money.
