Simple and easy to read yet captivating

This book is well written and the narration was easy to listen to at a pleasant speed (rather than too fast especially in tense moments as some others can be) and variation adapting to the storyline and characters well.
The story is uncomplicated yet with enough twists and turns to keep you interested. Its a story of interaction of characters and alliances, secrets and assumptions. This is a book made to enjoy the journey rather than racing to the end. It ends in a way that hopefully indicates a sequel or series, both giving a satisfying end point while leaving plenty of uncertainty that the characters are fully who they seem (not to mention potential love interests and alliances).
Also the characters express themselves well without bad language or having to be too graphic on gore, sex or hostility.
So in brief, easy to read/listen to, a pleasant light read well suited for young teen to adults that possibly may lead to more books in the future. Well done!

A good read

Interesting idea that holds your attention but any drama is anticlimactic. A little disappointed with the ending. Not a bad read overall but could have been better

I was disappointed honestly

Okay so you’re given billions of dollars, and all you can think about is how hot some guys are... really... I like the idea of the puzzles... but even so... this book could have been so much more.

3.5 Stars - Good but had untapped potential

I loved the idea but I felt the events could have been a bit darker. I will definitely give the second book a go but I will be disappointed if it's just more of the same.
I found the ending a bit anti-climatic.
Fantastic narration, Christie's voice was right for the book and her dramatisation of the story was perfect.
