The audible story was actually interesting and fine to listen to and I even found myself rooting for the heroine. However the central character in th..Show More »is novel, Starling, is a coward who is gripped by fear. There are many opportunities in this story for her to get a grip on her life but she doesn't. She hurts a lot of people along the way, even leaving a close friend scared because of her incompetence. The book ends with her being exactly where she belongs! It's probably the only redeeming high point in this book!
