The narration was very high quality, but it didn't follow the tone of the events that were being described: other narrators I've listened to tend to alter their tone when describing epic events versus run of the mill events.
The story was always interesting, but it wasn't very fulfilling: the author seems to have designed the world to work in ways that are flashy and entertaining, but with no intention of justifying these rather contrived features.
Wow! Great story but *eek* it took me months to get through it because of the narrator. I'm a bit of an audible junkie and having listened to over a hundred books I have become partial to great narrators like Roy Dotrice (Game of Thrones) and Stefan Rudnicki (all of Orson Scott Card's books). Anyway, I'm going to buy the second book now because I'm interested enough in the story to see what happens. Let's hope Mr. Deakins gets better...
Excellent story, memorable characters, heart wrenching in places, much different from the movie and much more sad in all the sad places. Didn't care for the voices the narrator gives to each character and that he obviously gets stuck in an accent between characters when there's more frantic dialogue. Love this book to death.
I saw the movie before the book the two are very different, book is better more imagination. Sort of mystery sort of thriller very messed up... Lol and dramatic.. Traumatic too i felt their pain as i was listening to this book. So overall i liked it. Not to scary, it had one cuss word the a word lol so this is pretty pg13
there is a lot I really liked about this book. I actually like it better than the hunger games. Thomas is way less annoying than Katniss. The story paces well and is performed greatly by the narrator.
Here come the Scorch Trials!
Fantasy book lover and art admirer If it has magic and it's written well, I'll love it.
The writing isn't the greatest but it's entertaining enough. The narator did pretty well, but Minho sounds too mexican.
