Nice plot twist
When one hears the lines, "I am old now...." at one point in the book and then that the "I" is 52, one knows that one is in the presence of a young and immature writer. That is what the whole book said to me. The juvenile comments that are slung around and the highly implausible plot made for a very disappointing listen. I was looking for something "real" and gritty. I do not know why or how the NYTimes recommended this as one of the best thrillers of the year - it often sounded almost like Gothic (genre). In my view, neither the plot nor the writing merit the accolades that have been heaped upon it.
The narrator was good. He couldn't help the (once again) juvenile language that he had to read.
