First, let me say, I adored the Hunger Games. This book is not as thought provoking or as complex as that trilogy, but it is more addictive. I simply couldn't put it down. I loved the relationship between Beatrice and Four. In fact, I adore Four. It is gripping, exciting and sometimes even funny. Read it!!! The narrator is great too!
In my humble opinion, this is a true masterpiece. The imagery conjured up by the author in such an usual way is simply amazing. True, the content is uncomfortable at times, but the writing is so wonderful that you oftentimes forget the subject matter . The fact that this book is laugh out loud funny at times is astonishing for so many reasons. Lastly, I doubt that anyone could narrate this book better than Jeremy Irons.
The only reason that I stuck with this book despite the poor writing and whiny narrator was the fact that I was actually interested in learning about Job’s life and Apple. If you are similarly interested, I would recommend this book, but only because of the knowledge you will gain from reading it and not because it is an enjoyable read. I also highly disliked the narrator’s whiny voice. I suspect that this product would not be worthy of Job's praise.
This was a delightful book that I suspect is better to listen to than to actually read. I could not stop listening and finished the entire book in a few days. The story was compelling and contained lots of laughs, and, of course, tears. The narrators of Minnie and Abileen were absolutely wonderful. I didn't particularly care for the narrator of Ms. Skeeter as she sounded too young for the part and also her voice lacked emotion. However, despite this, I would highly recommend it.
