I still don't understand how all of the story fits together. But since this is book one of a series hopefully things will be a little clearer in the next book. I would recommend to friends because the characters are entertaining by themselves! You gotta love the randomness of Spoon and sharp wit of Eeema !
I did not think I was going to love Shelter when I first started it, but after about an hour of listening I couldn't stop. I finished all 3 in the span of a couple of days. The characters in the book are unique and relatable. Nice to have a slightly "sci-fi-esque" novel without vampires, witches, or warewolves. Definitely something fresh and new.
The narrator was one of the best parts of the book. The way he brought the characters to life was incredible.
Books 2 & 3 are just great. Praying for number a 4.
Ok, so its called "young adult fiction" and is told in the narrative of a 15/16 year old. I'm 58. Lol, I loved it! Idk if I could read the sequel just yet, but I will some day. (I wish I had been that savvy as a teen--definitely fiction :)). Good plot and story, but for me the magic was in the storytelling. I'm glad I purchased it on audible.
I don't understand how anyone over the age of 18 can consider this a great read. This is definitely a book for younger audiences. The voice of "Spoon," who was obviously inserted as comic relief, was so over the top and annoying. It really felt like I was reading a children's book.
Why can't these stories fulfill all audiences, without these simple-minded, pre-pubescent formulas?
I enjoyed it very much, the reading and performance was outstanding, however the ending was well not cool, like it just stops, everything stops. it leaves you hanging. ..
