I was looking forward to listening to this book backed up by so many famous writers. It turned out to be a total mess where each writer tries desperately to continue the line of thought of the previous one. You could certainly see the joints and after a while I lost interest in the characters and what happens to them, never mind trying to understand what is going on!They were also many factual inconsistencies, as if the writers could not be bothered to read properly what went on before. Even the fact that Jeffrey Deaver wrote the first and last chapters couldn't save the day and in my opinion it should remain as an experiment not to be repeated.

Phenomenal, addictive, interest-grabbing from the start and steams along at a steady pace. This book is incredibly well written and Alfred Molina is brilliant.
I have lost a lot of sleep listening to this book that refused to let me turn it off.
The only downside is I have to wait another year for more.

I had to write a review, since my impression is different than some of the others here. I downloaded at the recommendation of a friend and really enjoyed it. I agree with the reviewer who liked getting every author's best effort. Each chapter has a story arch within it, which keeps the pacing going, and yes, each chapter ends with a cliffhanger the next author has to deal with, so that's fun! The story is complex, but no more so than a John Le Carre book! And the reading by Alfred Molina is very entertaining. He gives it nice texture. I would and will recommend this to others!
