Thank you Netgalley for the opportunity to listen to this book on audio.

Ok. So the narrator was good but not great. But I was very glad for a narrator because I do believe were I to read this book without one I would have had to give a DNF. The premise is rather interesting and the last 50 or so pages of the book rocked. But…

The book has a host of characters that peters off into nothing with back stories etc. that simply waste time. The driving force for this experiment gets lost in the sexism which very soon becomes a character of it’s very own. I kid you not. The book drags on through back story to another back story to another and very few of these are ever explored, built on or serves much of any role at all. Still the book is not bad. A good editor with a will to cut out a lot of unnecessary story lines will be able to make this a best seller. The premise is very good, like I said the last 50 or so pages were amazing.

The book has a lot of potential.
