3 *'s, I know, there must be something seriously wrong with me. I read this on audio and just like #1, it failed to engage my attention for huge chunks of time and I found myself constantly hitting rewind on the Ipod. The bits with Lizbeth were interesting but there were far too many characters for me to keep track of, I almost felt like I should have taken notes to remember who some of these people were. Either these books are not meant for me or I'm just too distracted to enjoy them. So I'm going to pass on reading #3 for now (and probably forever).
