Could have been so much more...

This was a fairly decent listen, but left me feeling it could have been so much more, both from a literary and narration point of view.
They story's concept was interesting but I thought the execution of the story was a bit hit and miss. Some parts of the book left me gagging for the next chapter in that character's story while others left me cringing, and fast-forwarding to get past it.
Some of the narration I feel was miscast and over read in some parts but, in the main, was OK.
Not Booker prize material, but wouldn't be the first book in the fire on The Day after Tomorrow.
