THE SHADOWS by Alex North is totally unremarkable. I chose it as my July audiobook from MacMillan Audio ALC program because it was also a Book of the Month option, which is always promising. unfortunately, THE SHADOWS did not pick up until around chapter thirty with approximately two hours remaining in the audiobook. I did enjoy the dream aspects, and by chapter forty I was at least interested to find out how it ended. But I never felt attached to any of the characters. I noticed on bookstagram that readers enjoyed Alex North's previous book WHISPER MAN, but after this one I probably will not bother. I appreciate the ALC from MacMillan Audio but will be more careful with my choice next month.
