This book is horribly written, extremely uninteresting and convoluted. Do not waste your time on this tripe!

Maybe the unabridged version is better
I did not realize that this was the abridged version until after I'd listened to the entire thing. It makes a little more sense now, as I assume the unabridged version filled in some of the missing pieces and made more sense. Not that the abridged version was hard to follow, I just felt that there had to be more back-story and character development than this. I couldn't truly grasp some of the characters' motivations for their actions. I'm hoping the unabridged version gives more justification for all the bed-hopping that went on. The characters came off as heartless, callous and downright immoral, and I'm sure that is not how Wesley intended them.
And Ann Massey's narration was just painful to listen to; I kept imagining all the face-wrenching she'd had to do for her characterizations. I wish she'd just read it straight through; there was really no need for all of the overly thick and exaggerated English accents. Even her attempts at the Erstwhilers' German accent was uncomfortable to listen to. Funny, but uncomfortable.
