This book can be summed up in three words - tedious, boring and irritating. It bored me to tears, I actually struggled just to stay awake. The narration was okay but not brilliant. I really have nothing good to say about this book so I'm not going to say anymore.

My favorite audiobook so far

To date, this is my favorite audiobook. It is all due to the tremendous narration by Laura Kirman. Her ability to use different tones to depict each character helped to bring the book alive in my mind. I only hope to find another book as well written and narrated. I look forward to a sequel!
