While the moment to moment writing can carry a listener through the book, the basic plot structure is haphazard and seemingly random. Characters motivations and basic attributes shift constantly with little reason. Some people completely flip their fundamental character traits 2 or 3 times. For much of the book I thought there was a grand conspiracy where a central figure was mind controlling everybody else to explain the bizarre actions of everybody involved, but that's not the case. Instead, the shallow reasons for a slew of incomprehensible actions are meant to be taken at face value. As I said at the beginning, it's not hard to listen to, just don't expect to invest yourself in the characters or the world at all.
The story had enough twists and turns to keep me interested, but overall it's just not a great book. By the end of the book I realized I didn't like any of the characters. I knew how it was going to end, but didn't really care. This was a disappointment.
