Almost like 3 stories in one. There is a story that runs through this book as well as a different story that emerges. Very good. Well read!
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
The beginning promised a good story but a third of the way through the story got stale and I found myself disliking the main character also I found the ending unsatisfactory as if the author couldn't think how to finish the story all in all an OK book
