I've got to say that I liked the ending of this book. It all seemed to fit and felt like it ended. I also was intrigued at the beginning of the story. Although internet scams are old, it was interesting to read a story about the after effects, the source, the number of people involved. There was also an interesting section on Nigerian lifestyles and how they changed due to Westernization & exploitation.
Yet, the book doesn't read well. It's frustrating, choppy, drawn out. It starts well for a short time, it ends well in the last few pages but the larger, middle section just didn't read well or put together.

Really well narrated, in fact it's that which kept me going. I found the story a bit complicated for an audio book, probably better in the written form. I was a bit disappointed at the end, but in all I enjoyed the book and would recommend it if only for the information contained. Really interesting facts about Nigeria.
