Why did I add The Last Woman in the Forest to my bookshelf?

I loved this author’s previous book, Breaking Wild, so I grabbed a copy of this audiobook just as soon as I saw it was on sale. And it has just sat in my audiobook library for the past 2 years. It sounds like a great story and I am excited that a full cast narrates it. Reviews for this book seem pretty mixed but I am hopeful since I have had luck with other books by this author.

What are your thoughts? Have you read this book?  Would you recommend it?
