This is very good, but mind twisty. Really need to hear it again because it's like that snake eating it's tail thing. Perfect listen if you are in a boring place and need to stay awake. It's like WTF! What? WTF! What?! Ugh---what?! WTF! Plus, I really love the voice of the woman who plays Tina Something.
I loved this once I got into it a bit. Totally original in the format and delivery. Hard to even describe except to say I was riveted by the story telling and the character development - wow, what characters.
The performances were interwoven perfectly.
I loved Echo...so damaged, but brave, and confident, and honest.
Disease epidemic, the future, neurology, time travel. yes please!
the story is choppy, as it is told by many characters about the main character, Rant. but I enjoyed a different style. it makes you think and put the puzzle together however you want. my fav of chucks so far.
The cast of narrators employed to enact this book gives a perfect example of the possibilities of audio books. Must listen for any audio book enthusiast. I might have a hard time listening to any other fiction after being exposed to this great production!
Narrators were great, and it's a great story, but the oral history writing style gets irritating after a while, as each time someone speaks, they first introduce themselves, breaking the momentum of the story.
Otherwise, this is a great Dystopian Fiction piece. It is a departure from the style of Chuck Palahniuk's other, more well-known pieces such as Fight Club and Choke. The oral history format, while irritating to listen to after a while, is an interesting approach to creating a tale of fiction.
The repertory performance wildly enhances the intricate narrative. The lack of chronological coherence is a knife wielded perfectly to gauge your attention just when it might otherwise slip.
Our modern literary master does not disappoint with a fictional biography weaved by disparate tales of a wake left in the pool of humanity.
Palahniuk continues to impress with the leaps he achieves from story to story.
