Review by: Morgan HobbesTry as I might, I just couldn't get into Call Numbers by Syntell Smith. Set in mid-nineties New York, this book failed to hold any real interest for me.
There were a few times where I thought it was picking up, but it never quite got there. I want to give it the benefit of the doubt. I honestly don't think it was a terrible written story overall, but it didn't resonate with me at all. No doubt there's a market, but I wasn't it.
I couldn't find myself caring enough about the characters to invest in them. They didn't strike me as the kind of people I'd want to be around, which isn't in and of itself something I always look for, but for the style of the book... it felt like that connection was something I would need and didn't get.
The narration by P. G. Hammock was good, though not enough to decrease the chore of getting through the 13-odd hours of this story.I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. I have not let this gift affect nor influence my opinions of this audiobook and have left an honest review.
