Rating: -2

I listened to the first three tracks of this book, and can honestly tell you I have no idea what was going on. It was two different stories flashing from one to another, and they didn't seem related at all. One was interesting, the other felt like I was doing math homework. On top of that, the reader sounded like he was reading something very exciting, when he was really just describing the length of someone's tie or the type of knot they used to tie their shoelaces.

Suffice to say, I quit. I sincerely apologize, but I can't recommend this book. I can't even tell you a content or age recommendation because I wanted to die twenty minutes after starting.
