Yes, because the story is interesting, entertaining and the narrator was good.
I like the ending! It was a superise and not what I expected!
He made each character voice believable.
to be continued....and, of course, the 2nd or end isn't available yet. I dislike books like this just as I do movie series that need you to 'tune in two weeks from Tuesday at 9:00 pm'. I will forget what it was all about by that time. To me, it is the same as having your mp3 battery just go dead or the whole thing breaks. Irritating. If this was mentioned in the book preview, then it is my fault for missing it.
The story was interesting and the ending, as far as it got, not what I expected. I will not rush out to get the 2nd until I am fairly certain it will be the end of that story.
edge of your seat!
He is an extremely good narrator and I found myself "in" the story.
I listen to audible books on my way to and from work (45min ea way) and couldn't wait until I was in the car again for the next part of this book. The ending left me wanting more and a little angry that it stopped so abruptly. Should really be at least one more chapter.
Great story that kept me guessing and on the edge.
Can't wait to listen to the second book in the series when it comes out in October 2012.
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 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
Smoke me a kipper; I'll be back for breakfast.
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.
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).
