SLOW STARTER BUT MEMORABLE
As always, Seven Pacey's narration; he is incredible.
Discovering the torturous childhood of the torturer...that always gives me more to ponder upon.
I don't know that he added anything that I would not have experienced by reading it; but from listening to it, he brought it alive, as he does with all his narrations.
No. There were a few cliffhangers but I was able to put it down.
This is not a genre I normally read and I did find it confusing for quite a few chapters. The book goes back and fro from present to past and between countries. I had difficulty keeping up with the names...especially when you have to remember them and can't see them in print. I also felt there was a lot of wasted space in the book...annoying stories, making me yearn for the plot and real story to continue. However, when it got going I was definitely hooked.
