Well narrated, but I found that multiple characters doing much the same thing was confusing, especially the main character did not have a fixed name

I listened to this book over about 3 weeks. I found it quite challenging to work out who had done what at the book moved through different viewpoint and different times. I could not tell you exactly what happened but I still enjoyed the book.

I found the middle of the book hard to follow and even considered giving up. Characters were hard to distinguish. Strong start and end.
