This book was really bad! The childish meandering dialog and performance combine to make this one of the most painful listens in recent memory. Both my kids (8, and 12) begged me to turn it off on a recent 2 hour road trip. I suffered through the entire listen expecting it to get better - it does not. Avoid!
The first book in this series was ok and I hesitated buying the second. I guess I blame my poor review on the excellent book by Peter Hamilton that I listened too prior to this this adolescent garbage. Adolescent is a perfect description of the character development and story. I had to stop a couple of hours into the book because it was so annoyingly awful. My largest complaint is the pointless completely unrealistic dialog between the teenagers. It was NEVER ending with 30 minutes of moronic back and forth between characters that had absolutely no point in the story. I want the 2 hours of my life back that I wasted on this book. AVOID!
WARNING! If you have testosterone in your blood this book will make you vomit… repeatedly. Any female that rated this book above a 1 should be ashamed of themselves. The author’s depiction of its female characters was an insult to every woman on the planet. The story (and that’s an over statement) ends abruptly without any closure on key plot elements. The “story” is just an excuse for an over the top romance that I pray is not a representation of the genre.
I read the reviews about the narrator and I was hesitant to purchase this book. However I’m glad I did because we all thought he was good, in fact very good. This is the first book from this author I’ve listened too and I found the story and the narration very enjoyable. Highly recommended Sunday drive listen.
