if you're a fan of the lead character being a young ignorant hick that also embraces his ignorance and is also a coward, this book is for you. extrmely shallow storyline, mind numbing story progression and characters that are simple and forgettable. I'll just wiki the ending of the second book for sh*ts and gigs.
I've read a couple of Patrick Ness's books (A Monster Calls and More Than This) and as with those two books this one surprised me and kept me going wanting to know what was going on. I definitely enjoyed the characters and the world created, but the story wasn't my favorite and I don't think I was as caught up in it as I have been with the previous books by Ness.
I'll still give the next book a shot, these books came highly recommended and the narration is top notch given the way the book is written.
The story itself engaged me such that I couldn't stop listening. The narration brought the story even more to life.
Although there were some interesting elements to the story, I had great difficulty convincing myself that the main character was 14 years old. I think my favorite part of the story was the relationship between Todd and his dog.
I love Sci-if in general. This book is so interesting and really keeps the listener/reader engaged. The only part that annoyed me was the "Things noise" it was so high pitched and annoying but it was a very small part of the book. I look forward to the next one.
