it was ok

I purchased the audiobook and found that the narrator for Fitz's character was quite dramatic for the part. Maybe that's what ruined the story for me, although he isn't a main character. I was left with many questions after reading this book, such as, why was the importance of her career so widely broadcasted when it really didn't have anything to to do with her being kidnapped other than some light irony that wasn't significant in the slightest. I would have much rather read about the stories of the children lost and found, than the all-too-descriptive plights of Andrew surviving in jail, or the pregnant laywer that had no relevance to the plot. I found myself cringing through the too-realistic details of jail and bored of the courtroom chatter, it was like reading (or rather listening) to a law and order episode. If I had wanted that, I would have volunteered for Jury Duty. However, I had invested the time and was at least satisfied that it had a happy ending... Recommend it if you are sitting in traffic, but honestly I prefer The Forgotten Garden instead... :) I like an adventure, I don't know about you...
