Avid reader. Car listener. My daughter is the avid listener. Reviews for young adult fiction are from her.
This was a good narration of a great book. I found the occasional background music distracting. Overall a pleasant listen.
interesting look into a future of oneness and twist it into some thing awful. very good
I listened to this book to help my niece with a character study for school. Really enjoyed it! Amazing the differences a 13 year old and a 42 year old pick up. A good book to read and discuss with a 13-16 year old.
Although I enjoyed the story itself, the narrator's voice acting for the young characters was awful. His exaggerated attempt at childlike voices was cringe-inducing, and I found myself struggling to get through the story because of it. It certainly made it harder to sympathize with the protagonist, who ends up sounding far younger than his age and whiny to boot. It would have come across better had he not used individualized voices at all.
