Though I'm a believer in reincarnation and looked forward to a new philosophical tale on the subject, this book was disappointing.
Its perspective on organized religion is almost blasphemous. The frequent interruptions of footnotes fashioned to aid believability to this work of fiction was annoying at best, insulting at worst. I almost stopped listening more than once. That said, I did like some of the characters and kept hoping it would evolve into something unexpected, with resolution. Alas, it did not.
I'm a huge fan of Kathy Reichs, I've got all of her books on my rental shelf!!!! The story is fantastic, although at times predictable.
Good author and narration. I enjoy listening to her with the exception that it seems she is trying to impress with all of the different languages. Her relationship with Boy and Birdie really hit home. I would recommend this book and author to others, while also letting them know that there is a bit of foreign (french in this one) languare and pronunciation to deal with at times.
Very slow. The book had a good plot, but way too many characters.
