I bought this book based on the glowing reviews but I have to say now almst 3 hours in I am really starting to wonder. It is a nice depiction of Chicago, and perhaps if I accept it as a history lesson and not the murder mystery I thought I was getting, it will be better.
It just seems like there is a great story here but the author does not bring the characters alive to me. I want more dialog not the endless narration of a very repetitive nature.
The writing is okay. Quite unremarkable. I think this audio recording may do a tremendous diservice to the book. The voice acting is terrible. It would have been much better if they had just used a single narrator. I found the accents really got on my nerves.
