I downloaded this because I had heard good things about the book. While it is less annoying that some of the other teen trilogies out there, it did seem very formulaic in its setup.
I did however enjoy the narrator. :-)
Yes. These books are entertaining, however for myself not on par with many of my four or five star books that I would recommend that everyone read. I am engaged enough to want to continue listening. This type of book would not be for all listeners. It takes a little time to get used to the tone of the book and the slang language, as well as to the narrator, however I found that for myself after I got used to the jargon and tone of the book I was quite entertained.
I normally don't write a review for a book. I just gave it the stars and click submit. This time however, I felt like I needed to.
I admit I got this book because I watched the movie and, and wanted some huge holes in the story filled in. The movie is nothing like the book, but we all knew that was going to happen.
The biggest problem I had with this book was that every time there was a hole in the story that needed explaining the characters purposely gave the Tom an angry, shushed him, ignored him, or something. The whole point of this book was don't tell the audience anything. Which I found very annoying, because the author purposely made it known that he didn't or couldn't fill in those holes.
I'm not explaining it very well, but reading the book didn't help me fill in any holes that were in the movie version of the story.
I watched the movie and thought it was good so I wanted to listen to the book. The book met and blew away my expectations. The story kept me on edge trying to figure out how the maze worked and the end result was awesome. I suggest anyone listen to this book great story and the reader does an amazing job narrating the story.
I saw the movie first and I am glad I did because I would have been disappointed watching it after the book. The book goes into great depth and is amazing. If you saw the movie and want more the this is a must read!
