This is the first time I have heard a story with two narrators. It worked, but it took time to reason and understand why. It was much the same with the whole story too. It was a bit difficult to get the bigger picture, but gradually it began to fall into place; all the pieces of the puzzle started to become clearer. The characters were in the main a very unsympathetic bunch which made the story difficult to plough through, especially when the tale became particularly violent.
I think that by the end I was still there because I was as dogged a listener as Riker was a tracker and wanted closure on a rather unsavoury story.
It was no bed of roses, but eventually it did all make sense. Ian not sure if I would buy anymore of these books, buts there are and counter-balanced by curiosity about an unsavoury story well-told.
Had this been the first that I read, I don't think I would have read others. This is the fourth or fifth so I know there is a chance that the next one will return to the former standard. Maybe if I read the book instead of listening it would be better.
This is without doubt the worst book I have ever had the misfortune to have to listen to,the story is breathtakingly bad going off in tangents that beggar belief,the characters are so bad I thought it was a comedy,the narrators were the only part that was ok,basically it is an extremely amateurish attempt at a complex story,I have listened to other Tim weaver novels and enjoyed them,sorry but it really is that bad
Gripping, twisting thriller looking back to old Hollywood as the source of dark secrets. Violence and tenderness mixed with the search for truth and justice. Tim Weaver does it again.
