    " Regrettably this audiobook fell short of my expectations. Despite the hype surrounding this novel, I found the storyline pretty shallow and uninteresting for the most part. The characters lack substance and their relationships lack depth. On the plus side though, the audio performance was excellent with a full team of talented readers. I just wish the writing had been better. "
