Book Review

This was an okay listen. The production quality was decent. However, the narrator was not the best choice for this one. There was little to no transitions in place. You could not discern when a new character or scene was taking place.

The story itself was okay. All the characters were damaged and the brothers' lack of guidance and stability showed in how they handled all their relationships. The lack of disrespect they had for women even those they claim to love was written well. It highlights the lack of parenting in their youth to show them positive relationships and interactions between men and women. While the identity shooters, in the beginning, was predictable, I thought there would be more fallout from the revelation. However, it was glossed over. There was definitely some missed potential here.
I'm going to read books 2-4 to see how this ends.
