I wanted to like this but can only give it 3 stars for a couple of reasons.
Firstly, it isn't the complete book. I've read Codename Villanelle & was disappointed to find that the audio book stops less than 1/2 way through. Some investigation shows that the book was originally 4 kindle singles then released as 1 book but the audio is only 1 of the singles. If you're going to do that you need to make it very clear & not call the whole book the same name as 1 of the singles to avoid confusion.
Secondly, the narrator was just wrong for the book. I actually really liked her, thought she did a good job, & will actively look out for her in a the future, but she was all wrong for a this. The main character here is ice cold, arguably a sociopath. Anytime she interacts with anyone she is manipulating them and it's all on her terms. The narrator just couldn't pull that off, she was too personable, too nice.
I found the audiobook to be entertaining & if it had been the whole book (or cheaper) I probably would have given it 4 stars, but overall it was a little disappointing.
