I liked the story pretty well but I really didn't like the narrator very much. Very nasal voice, the characters typically sounded sleepy or even intoxicated. It was hard to like the characters because they sounded so weird. But I was able to get over it enough to appreciate the story.
This book was so good by about the a quarter of the way through, I found myself not being able to put the thing down. The ending killed me not being able to see what happens, but I am definitely getting the next book. I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!😄
I love mystery and thriller genre books. I am a complete Audible addict!
I had a hard time pausing this story. Scott Westerfeld is an amazing writer and I highly recommend this book to anyone over the age of 13.
I've got to admit, the idea is original, the writing was good, and it took turns I wouldn't have expected.
Like I'm sure everyone is saying, the voice was a little bit of an odd choice. Strangely adult and nasally for a teenage girl. I really think it meant something, and I'm pretty sure that was on purpose. Bit of an ugly voice for the ugly girl :). Though the voice for Shay made me cringe a little.
Overall, I totally recommend it!
All YA books must have this line.
i just didn't like the narrators choice of voices for different characters, especially Shay and David. it really distracted me from an otherwise interesting story.
Yes - I found the story to be interesting and the concept was a unique spin on the distopian world genre.
I think a different narrator would have really helped with this. I enjoyed the story but the narrator had a distracting voice and she gave a lot of the characters very nasally voices which was very distracting.
This was a hesitant read, and apparently it was well merited. It was alright. It didn't blow my mind in any stretch, though I concede that it inspired me to take up skateboarding. There is a measure of hype surrounding this book, and I expected more... but it was only mildly entertaining. Not to mention, the narrator needs to be fired. It was literally a painful listen.
