It was the storyline. I didn't realise it was about teens only.
Depends whether it is a teen style book or not
It is the only book so far I have not persevered with.
I love books!
I haven't read the print version so i cant say which is better. But i favor audio over print unless the narration is bad.
Im not sure if i could compare it to anything out there today. maybe " lord of the flies" mixed with the Matrix.
this was my 1st Michael Goldstrom book.
Buy this while it's on sale

As someone who attended a boarding school I found this story even more creepy. There's some really great twists in this story that put it in the definite sci-fi category. The author came up with a great idea, made you care about at least some of the characters, and hunger, along with the main character, to find out what the heck is really going on. It's a very quick read but didn't feel really rushed. The style is clean and makes sense for the narrator's thought process.
Never trust anyone who doesn't enjoy reading.
Not in the top 10 yet it keeps you listening and I'm very curious to know what happens in the 2nd book.

Variant is a solid story with interesting characters. It's nothing exceedingly noteworthy, but a good way to pass a few hours. If you like teen-dystopic-fiction, this should be right up your alley.
I'm open to any book as long as it is true to itself.
This book was a teen novel with a new variation. The premise of the story was excellent and Wells explored the concepts very effectively, carrying the reader forward at a fast pace, eager to know how the plot would unfold. However, the ending was very unsatisfying. Yes, many books are part of a series (in this case a planned trilogy), but the author needs to give the reader some kind of satisfaction at the end. I felt that I had too many questions left hanging in the air.

Story begins straight away. Good pace. Wasn't wrapped in the ending, and the main character seems only motivated by self-preservation. Premise is good though.
I'd recommend it to reluctant readers, has a Percy Jackson feel to it (without the gods).
I enjoyed Benson and Becky.
It was a good story and held my interest. I also enjoyed the reader of the book. I hope there are more boos in this series as I felt the ending was a little up in the air.
More believable characters, among other things.
Narration was fine, narration was not the problem.
I think this was meant for a younger audience. I wish audible would find a way to let us know if a book is intended for young adults or children. This is not the first time I have had this problem.
