I enjoyed listening, it filled my commute time. Sometimes the story jumping around was a bit undesirable but otherwise a good story.
Book and TV doesn’t match as usual but not a bad series. Long and kept my mind wondering sometimes but not bad.
Character development did take awhile but this being the first book in a trilogy, makes sense. Otherwise, I took a gamble on the book and wasn't disappointed. On to book 2!
I think the book has ups and down. some times its a thriller and then it becomes a historic novel. Fast and slow. i like it but also got a bit tired of it.
Decent story, painstaking run on details though
Love this book!!!!
Couldn't get into it. Sent it back after listening to the first disk. Maybe it gets better later, but I couldn't take any more of it!
super great ....loved it very very much cant wait for the next book.. I can not say in words how great this is.. ,YOU will not be unsatisfied.
I thought it was a very good book but also longer than it needed to be. Too much time developing the characters which appear in the book. Aside from this, I was completely hooked into the story and looked forward to hearing everyday. I thought the narration was excellent and enjoyed every step of the story. A good listen if you are into the Thriller/Horror genre.
Takes awhile to get to the good stuff. I kept thinking, how's all of this connected. Keep listening and of course it does all come together. I have to say I was upset when the book ended because I didn't know there was a second book at that time. Couldn't wait to start the second book. I am really enjoying the series.
