Toward the top.
Some of the conversations that the main character had with his teacher about the history of society stand out in my mind.
Fit the character and scenario well.
Yes, but that's hard...
SOOO much better and completely different than the stupid movie. It's a shame that it even has the same title. They were nothing alike really.
The story is great. I've read it many times. The problem is that they added some passages in post, and the voice doesn't match up. It's just enough to throw me out of the story. Otherwise, it's a good buy.
There's so much excitement in a world where citizens have a vested interest in the survival of their Nation, you follow Johnny through his stages of realization. from learning to fight to learning to lead Johnny explains his revelations as they appear to him.
It was appropriately slow and aloof, with an interesting first person pov. The audiobook reader was not great.
The audio frequently dropped into a deep muffled sound for spans of 10 seconds. Just long enough to distract from the story and make you wonder what the narrator just said.
It's an excellent book and astounds me how a book published in 1959 can be talking about scifi things that authors in 2015 are still using (power armour, read: halo, call of duty, warhammer 40k, etc). I'm also a huge fan of his social commentary. So much good, if you've never read it, or haven't read it since you were a kid, I highly recommend it.
the narrator is excellent and has a perfect voice that reflects the characters growth throughout the whole story.
