I'd be interested in trying another book by the author but this one here was hard for me to finish.
I love science fiction, Greek mythology, and fantasy books. While there are instances of those genres in this book, it still failed to capture my interest. The narrator made this interesting.
I would've given up on this book at the century mark but the narrator was intriguing and kept me listening to the end.
What a difference a good narrated book can make on whether you finish a read or not.
