After having read the hunger games I got pointed to this book by someone i know as being similar-ish.
The book is alright I guess. But I felt it was also very bland. The characters didn't really catch me, they felt like obvious arch-types. The progress and development of the protagonist felt cookie cutter to me. There were one or two interesting events but other then that it was rather bland story wise.
A mildly interesting setting, a archetypical protagonist, and a rather average story.
Don't get me wrong it's not bad. It's just easy no-thinking-required listening. Amusing but forgettable.
Perhaps the sequel will be more interesting.
I really liked this book, but then again I am an eve online player, so a lot of the locations where recognizable for me, as well as certain behavior from the factions in the book.
For a none eve online player it might be a bit overwhelming, while some back-story about the factions can be inferred the book might be a bit less digestible for those not already familiar with the setting.
I really liked the performance, the voices felt distinct and the pacing of the narration was good for my tastes.
