The story is so well written, the world building so interesting. I read all three books in the series and Kay Kenyon is an amazing writer. The stories had me sitting in my car after work, unable to shut off my ipod. Sci-fi at it's best.
The ending was abrupt and not explained. What happens to the dome people at the end? To the Mothers, the wretches? Does Weed use the cure? Do the beasts & Dusts just kill everyone off? What about Pressia's father? Seems like the author got lazy and rushed through the ending.
I like the story but the whining, totally unlikeable main character makes it hard going. She's sickening to say the least.
No, but I'm "Reluctant" to read another book by this author.
The scenes with the dog. lol!
A well developed fleshed out plot would have helped a lot.
It had no depth. The story was rushed and implausible. This is the second book I've read by this author and both were good but poorly executed plots.
Yes he was okay.
They were all shallow.
I won't waste any more of my time commenting about such poor writing.
No more sugar!
The realization that diet is the crucial role in staying healthy hit me for the first time like a ton of bricks.
No, first time.
I loved this book and was sorry when it ended. See immerses you in a beautiful story of love and friendship that lasts a lifetime.
Story was okay and that's being generous. I was upset that audible let this author get away with charging 2 credits for this book when I've read much better and longer audio books for the normal 1 credit. Let me assure you this book is not worth 2 credits. It just goes on and on. Again, it's just okay.
I wanted to like this audiobook, but it was boring with one dimensional, unlikable characters. Ten hours into the book the plot was still murky. The minutiae was excruciatingly boring. Stephenson rambled on and on like chalk screeching on a blackboard. I stuck it out to the end, but please, don't waste a credit on this audiobook. It's not worth the listen.
It was a mind numbing listen with the most uninteresting, extraneous minutiae. The characters were boring and unlikable. As hard as I tried, I could not drum up any feeling but faint distaste for the main character. This writer throws any and everything into the story. Never mind that most of the details add nothing to the storyline. It was a waste of a credit and believe me I am not an overly picky reader - I like lots of different genres. Although it felt like torture, I listened to the entire book. I'm like that - I can't waste money. But please skip over this book and go for something like "Redeeming Love "by Francine Rivers. That's a story with depth, emotion and spirituality.
The story is great but the narrator is beyond horrible. Where do they get these people? I cringe at his one note whiny female characterizations and even when he reads background he overdoes it. I have to turn off my ipod a times because I just can't stand his juvenile reading style. I'm tempted to get the book and finish the story. Great audiobook, lousy narrator.
