I listened to the Audiobook and would highly recommend it. It didn't feel as big as it was, the multi voice cast was all very good. Just don't listen to the sample, it is from the end of the book and gives something away. 

The story flips between real life and the script the main character is reading and going to be acting out in the film she was hired for. I was never confused, the voice cast did great jobs separating it. It is a very twisty and atmospheric read, though I found it a little wordy I was captured by the audiobook and it seemed to go by very fast. 

The ending wasn't as dramatic as I was hoping, but the build up to the end was very good. 

I loved The Nothing Man by this author and though this didn't live up to it I am glad I read it and will read more of her work in the future
