I should preface this post with this: I was gifted this as an audio book last year. I tried more than once to listen to it, but on my iPod where, unless it was the only thing I was listening to, I constantly lost my place. I now have the Audible app on my phone & that's making it slightly less painful.
That being said, am I going to spend the entire book going, "WTF just happened?" Nothing about the prologue & first chapter seems to line up. I'm so thoroughly confused.
