When I began listening to this book, it took me an hour to get into the rhythm and pacing, but when I became accustomed to it, it blew me away. Will Patton has perfectly captured the emotion of the characters and even though I knew how it would end, I wish the story had not. If you are looking for something different and unique, choose this one.
This is Margaret Atwood at her finest. I loved Oryx and Crake, but I think this book surpasses it. As I listen to more and more audiobooks, I find the narration is almost as important as the story and these readers prose and pace was excellent! I can't wait for the next Atwood creation.
If we had no electricity for a prolonged time, how would we get by. Whether it's EMP or natural disaster, this book makes you think about the our lives would change without computer chips or electricity.
This was one of my best reads this year. I loved the format and subject matter. The characters were rich and the narrator was outstanding. I will read his other 2 books as as soon as possible.
This a fantastic journey into the future from Margaret Atwood. The leap from present day into 20 or 30 years down the road is both logical and frightening. The 3 main characters are well developed throughout the book and when the get to the final chapters, you probably won't be able to stop listening. If you like science-fiction with a large dose of reality, you will like this book.
As I cross the Missouri river everyday on my way to work, I loved this storyline. Although there were many characters in the story, I didn't have any trouble figuring out who they were thanks to Alfred Molina's narration. The story covers alot of ground in 7+ hours, so at times I thought that I was listening to an abridged version, but overall I would highly recommend this book.
Grisham writes so well about lawyers and their cases, and this one is no different. A rich and accurate portrayal of life on the street, the main character actually tries to help. I would highly recommend this book.
