- At times the story felt like it jumped, or I missed a scene, and I felt lost until it picked back up to a logical place. I think this was past text that wasn’t as obvious as it could have been in the audio version (I haven’t seen the paper version so have no comparison).
- The main character is portrayed as a very bright, witty and strong, however the plot relies on her not seeing obvious points that the reader can easily pick up on.
- Felt the plot/ending was obvious about halfway through the book, and then slowly builds to the end that you already know.
In Depth Review
Overall I found the story entertaining and a great way to pass time while cleaning, etc. (I listened to the audio version). While the story became predictable about halfway through, I still found the story rhythmic and colorful to listen to nonetheless. The plot was weak and I feel like this was a short story dragged out into a novel.
- The narrator has a pleasant British voice.
- The narrator does great voices that I enjoyed and felt brought the story to life. Some may find them a bit over the top, but I did in the best of ways.
- The book is not read slowly, but not quickly, keeping a medium pace.
- It’s my opinion that the narrator’s way of reading, flow, and character voices made this book much more pleasant and enjoyable.
