Great book, but did not like the narrator

The narrator spoke with some very weird inflections that sometimes made it hard to listen to

Mediocre compared to his other stories

Not quad well connected to characters and plots . It started out great but seemed to lose steam in the last third. The scenes seemed rather rushed and lacking in details. Hopefully the next one is better
