This review is written without finishing the book. The writing for the story itself is ok, but it gets confusing from time to time because one minute..Show More » your talking about a scene of something that's happening now and the next second your a decade to a few thousand years in the past depending on the characters point of view and just and abruptly the viewpoint switches back to the present again. The biggest problem with this audio book is the narration. Some narrators perform with passion and others make separate voices for the different characters and this narator does neither. Everyone sounds like they are all speaking with an arrogant insincere tone of voice that some times sounds arrogant but almost always very even and never varying much. Once in the book the narrator forgets himself for a minute and the characters voice changes and actually sounds angry. So far 3/4 of the way through and that has only happened once. The strait level reading would be OK, but the nasal tone of voice were they always sound like they are getting away with something with EVERY SINGLE WORD gets grating after the first hour.
