I didn't realize when I got this that it was aimed at young adults (aka early teens). There's really nothing in the description to tip you off, so it's an easy mistake to make. YA books aren't really my thing, but if they are yours there's enough here to satisfy and you'll find it better than my two star review. I was looking for something with a bit more sophistication, but for a post-apocalypse novel this is far, far more Hunger Games as opposed to, say, Lucifer's Hammer. I'd give it a recommendation for teenagers looking for a light listen on the light fright side, and a pass for a more mature audience.
The narrator, Julia Whelan, is very good, so if you are looking for something geared for a younger audience, it has that to recommend it as well.
They have some inconsistencies in the story but overall it is very good. One moment they called something a camel and the other it's a donkey then back to a camel stuff like that.
I absolutely loved this book! I enjoy action, adventure and romance and this was everything and more! The narration was beautiful and easy to listen to. Loved the story! Will definitely read the next two!
This is the first book I have listened too in a long time that I just couldn't walk away until it was finished. Great story, relatable characters, plenty of twists to keep you guessing, and an amazing reader make this book an A+ in my opinion. I can't wait for more!
