Timely the way stories like 1984 are timely today. Sometimes the narrator would change voices for a character and then go back to her own voice in the middle of what the character was saying but otherwise excellent.
The author would spend a lot of time going into detail about things that did nothing to move the story along. Things such as trees and random inanimate objects. She would also move the story forward and back ward in time with no warning. Over all the book was horrible.
One good note was Clair Danes reading.
this character. the author paints a vivid picture of what life had become in this dystopian world.
I was so bored listening to this book I just could not listen anymore. Claire Danes voice emulates the monotonous drone of the story well that's the only reason why I gave the performance two stars. I regret using my credit to buy this book and would return this purchase if I could.
The best thing about this book is the narration by Claire Danes. I do not regret the purchase, just became a little boring and all over the place at times.
especially in today's society I can see how this book could easily become our reality. the author did an amazing job and this book is now one of my top 3 favorites! it opens your eyes to a whole new View of a nightmare that unnervingly can one day be our reality.
could not turn this one off. listened to it religiously (pun intended) and lived every minute. was CERTAIN this was written after 2010. frightened to discover it was written 30 years ago. are we all pre-Galidean? we'll have to see to find out!!
