A story told from a non-human perspective is unusual . . . but, to have one set during WWI is truly remarkable. The story is captivating, but (narrator) Dan Stevens does an incredible job of story telling.
I purchased this audio book based on two things . . . First, Dan Stevens was the narrator and, in my opinion and without a doubt, Dan Stevens is one of the best narrators I've ever listened to. He truly enriches any book he reads. Second, after reading the reviews, it sounded like a worthwhile read.
The story was interesting, but it seemed to plod along. It took so long to get through the plot and then it suddenly ended. I liked the two main characters Ray Lovell and JJ and how they shared the story. I felt sympathetic toward both of them . . . especially JJ.
Lorelei King has been an excellent reader for the Stephanie Plum series . . . but, she was given such a weak book to read that it doesn't matter. The story is vacuous and the series has lost it's spark. This book, like the last few, is a feeble attempt to keep a series going that the author appears to have lost her enthusiasm to make a sincere effort. Evanovich needs to make a decision . . . make an effort to capture the essence of the earlier books of this series or end it. I was sure there was something wrong when the books was nearing it's end because it's so short.
This is one of the most boring books I have ever read or listened to! At first I thought it was taking time to get started and hoped it would pick up speed, interest, and intrigue as it progressed. Unfortunately, it just plodded along at a donkey's pace. It's a simple and contrived story that lacks any kind of originality.
