Until I read Ender's Game, I never read science fiction. But lately I've been trying different authors and this one is pretty good. I wish somebody had indicated how bad the foul language was, though. I read other people's reviews before I choose and that is something that some of us want to know.
I think the narrator does a really good job of distinguishing the characters of different gender and age.
For me, the foul language really ruined it. The character Roger doesn't seem to know any words other than f***. Now I can't lend this to my teen sons, which is half of why we sprung for an audible membership.
One of my favorites, because I love post-apocalyptic stories and this one tells it without the grim depressed feeling so many others have.
The characters in the story are courageous, real and flawed. Not predictable.
No. Not that intense that you couldn't stop for the night. But I never lacked interest in what would happen next.
Yes, I'd recommend this audiobook. We were awaiting the release of this book. Get the others in the series if you haven't already.
My son loves number 9. My favorite is 6. Probably the gender thing. We both like to see bravery but also some uniqueness in a hero.
There were actually 3 narrators. My husband and son and I thought 2 were good but that the other sounded odd in some characters.
The movie was pretty good, near to the book.
