Reads Like a Screenplay

I got this because it had some good reviews. But I just found it boring. I listened to it for an hour hoping that it would pick up, but it didn't. It read just like a screenplay in that it was just continuous dialogue, conversations with no descriptions about the people, what they did, where they went to. I would have liked to read about what the people were thinking, flashbacks to childhood memories, something other than constant talking.

Very slow starter

This is the slowest starting book that I have encountered. 1.5 hrs into the book and the background continues. I gave up hoping the story would ever start after 1 3/4 hrs.
