I listened to the audio version of these book and really enjoyed the narrator. I was frustrated with the main character because she seemed odd. If you only read the parts she spoke you would think she was mentally disabled. She stammered all the time and did not seem like the professional journalist she was supposed to be. Sure she was having trouble with anxiety but I don't believe she would have been sent on this trip. She just didn't seem capable of her job....or speaking. I did enjoy the book though and definitely recommend the audio book.
