I listened to this book during two consecutive road trips. It was read by an English chap which, at times, was hard to understand and listen to, but also made sense since the story takes place in London during the 2012 Olympic Games.
It was a little eery to listen to the book and then go in and watch some of the games - and keeping the two separate in my mind. But I think having it take place during the current games made it more interesting to me. It was a decent story but more in the style of a comic book and not the suspense novel I was expecting from a highly acclaimed novelist.
