I suppose I am not a good source for a review. I wanted to read this book because the movie was coming out. But this was just to young for my taste even though I have read several YA books I didn't care for this one. Sorry no help here.

I'm a curious creature. Being curious I sometimes do things that everyone advise against, but I can't help it. Curiosity killed a perfectly healthy credit I could have used for something that deserved it. It's a lesson I won't forget. There are too many things wrong with this book. It would take me long time to write them all up. I already wasted too much time on this crap, I don't wish to continue. Sorry.

Amma's fried chicken and buttermilk pie, I could just taste her cooking
he does great voices, i felt like I was part of the story
I loved the audio recordings it adds so much more to the feeling of the tale. Their is music and sound effects at times that really make it feel 4 dimensional in your mind
I haven't listened to an audiobook in years, but the music and sound effects were amazing, and added depth to the story!
Lena. She is an outcast, but find friendship anyway. She is special, and different, and just so relatable, even though I don't have special powers.
Macon. He did an excellent job of helping me picture the character. I loved when he would come into the story.
The whole thing. I was drawn in the whole time. But when he realized his mom was helping him, that was awesome!
The story is fantastic, though it does seem to get a little rushed and confusing in the end.
I found it a bit annoying that three quarters or more of the story was from a single characters point of view and then suddenly the authors throw us into a different characters head. The transition definitely was a bit rough at that point. Then just as you start to acclimate to being in a different characters POV, they throw back into the original characters POV.
I loved the narrator, his pace and accent was definitely a ten. I only rated it so low in performance because I really didn't much care for all the sound effects and music. I found the added effects, as well as the switch in narrators there near the end quite jarring.
I had read the paper book first and then decided to listen to the book. This audible is my favorite to listen to by far! The voices are clearly distinct, and the addition of actual sound effects and music really makes it!
