Will devour this book if listened to with an open mind & at full attention the first hour. I think so, at least. As much as I like Steig Larssen & JK Rowling with their script writing abilities, & the best narrators for the fiction perfectly matched, it is a bit of story heaven building out new caverns of the mind eating up like enchanting music.

Clever for being clever’s sake but just bandying about with bluster around dimensions with a few cute quips inserted here & there.

The inter-dimension travel has some fun fantasy to it but the main characters or any character has so very little actual character.

After my first listen in just one day, I’m already thinking to re-listen. That’s a rare response in me! Yes! Take a listen!

I have a very hard time believing the narrator is a human, without fail on each sentence. AI is able to make words intelligible, just every words emphasis is always off, word for word.

In “romance” it has style, uniqueness, flare. Better use of vocabulary than 99% of what is out there in its own peer group.

2.5 hours isn’t long but it dives into the unique twist of a rom-com in audio fiction form. It’s a fun, light-hearted jaunt of a story.

Dearly engaging where for spells of time my ears bent into the words & heard the words & the consonants & syllables & music & meaning meld into my eardrums vibrating wonder into me.

I feel like I know people like this. Relatable. This story reminded me of how once, someone, to no avail, tried to blackmail me. I realize her mother, a successful politician, behaved and raised her this way and that she followed suit. This story gave me glimmers of insight on why & how some people are twisted & this story is a plausible & very real peek into what that kind of life would look like. Could it be better? Not a master writer yet, but sure beats the formulaic iterations littered about saturating the market up to what seems 90% of the time. Glad to find an unexpected plausible tale that leaves me with a sense this happens out there for real, with a frequency hidden to us all.

Thats it: wild goose chase cliffhanger.

Mystery to mystery to mystery full of adventure & violence.

Well read.

An introduction to numerous characters I’m sure to be found in the sequel of more mystery, adventure, violence. Is it with worth it? I found the vocabulary & reading worth a second listen years after my first listen.
