I really tried to get into The Vanishers. I started the audiobook 3 times. On the last try, I finished the first CD and I realized I had no idea what was going on or what the author was talking about. I was never able to orient myself to the world the author was trying to create. I may at some point try to finish the book, but with so many books on my TBR Pile, it won't be anytime soon. It is too bad, because the synopsis seemed so interesting. Maybe if the book had more of a background set up in the beginning, I would have been able to get into it more.
