If you have extra credits, it is worth the listen. The technology (which is the centerpiece of the story) is on such weak foundations that to me much of the story lacked credibility and kept me from engaging. The characters were well written and the overall premise interesting, but there are so many GREAT books out there leave this one for a long summer vacation when you leave your critical thinking hat at home.
I am embarrassed to say I put off reading this book for way too long. Primarily because I had already seen the movie, and in general knew the plot of the book. However the narrator does such a fantastic job especially in communicating the urgency and confusion of the title character the book really comes through. This book is much much better than the movie.
My favorite quote. When we have "the talk" with our daughter we are going to tell her that sex is between one a man and an woman in love unless one of those is a rich twist then I will tell her to remember best effort... (I garbled the quote but I laughted out loud)
It was like X-Men. A few exceptional people begin to arise. Us VS Them always stands out....
This story still holds up very well. Very interesting to think about what you would trade for happiness and stability.
