It was pretty good, it could get better.

I liked the story overall. But the pacing was a little bit hard to sit through without falling asleep. I listened to this on a plane ride to Europe. I did think that the plane ride had a part in it, but after I got over the jet lag in Europe, I tried to listen to it again and it just put me to sleep. It could benefit from some editing.

The author, Elizabeth Janet Gray, is a very good author. I just think that the pacing of the reading needed a little work. Stuart Blinder has a good voice, but the slowness of the reading would just put me to sleep.

I am relatively new to audible, so I don’t have much experience to these audio books. So maybe I am just used to reading at my own pace. But in all I did very much like the book.
