Read this book, don't listen!
I couldn't not finish this one, but I truly wish that I had read, rather than listened to it. I have read reviews where people have suggested that authors should never read their books for the audio version. This is definitely one of them. I had to speed up the narration just to be able to continue to listen to his voice!
The story was certainly interesting, as were the characters. Although the book was long, the characters were never completely fleshed out and neither were their stories. I was intrigued with the concept of dignity and governance, and wondered where the author was taking this. Yet again this was another concept that was never fully fleshed out, and which was left hanging.
I am left with ideas & concepts which I will continue to mull over & see where they take me personally. Was this the author's intent?
I could not give it a better rating, and I cannot recommend it to anyone else to listen to.

Good book, bad narration
While I enjoyed the story, I would have enjoyed it more if the narrator had not sounded like he was being forced to read aloud in 6th grade English class. There was little to no emotion in his performance. Also, it could get difficult to tell who was supposed to be speaking in parts with multiple characters having a conversation.
