Inconsistent characters. Plot full of holes. Writing tedious, turgid. I did not enjoy this book.

Each plot twist required characters, including the main character, to undergo a complete personality transplant which made the story unsatisfying.

Starts off as a lecture about improving your relationship with God. Might work for some people. But not for me.

The narrator did great justice to this fine novel. Every minute was alive with the passion, misery, foreboding, and joy that the author intended. Highly recommended!

I love a good psycho thriller. So this isn't one of them. Contrived at every level...characters not believable, plot twists painfully forced. The reading was gaspy and over acted.

Interesting twists in p.o.v. Growly voiced narration pitch perfect. Prose self conscious at times. Good listen. Recommended.

Makes you realise how few books you know where guys are relentlessly flawed and frail. Each story is like stepping into a nightmare in motion. With each main character imprisoned.
