I'm a mad reader but with young children I don't get time so instead I have been listening in the car. Have fallen in love with audio books!
It was the best book I have ever heard, but it could have had a bit more in the factory.
the story is wonderful though it feels so unfinished that I'd rather advise people not to begin listening unless they want to be disappointed in the abrupt ending. the story leaves you suspended with more than a few questions reeling around in your head.
"It was a great book for me."
