This was the SLOWEST thing ever. I think my main problem was that I listened to the audio book narrated by the author. Let's just say he should stick to writing. If you like monotone old man voices narrating your books, this is for you!

On to the actual story, it was hard to follow and jumped around from character to character. I keep thinking I should just take a look at a hard copy to see if it at least had some better division than the audio book did, but I never did.

There were parts that I liked, parts that I had no idea what was going on and parts that I couldn't figure out why they were stuck in there...
