I was very underwhelmed by this book. The story and the characters seemed hollow. It's obviously targeted towards teenagers, but apparently is intended for teenagers that know very little about how anything works. The portrayals of the adults seem very unrealistic, except maybe from the view of a teenager that thinks adults are emotionally frail and can't do anything right. Many of the premises in the story are eye-rollingly implausible. The story seems to touch on issues without ever truly scoping them out. I'm afraid that I can't recommend it as anything but a low-grade sci-fi fluff piece that tries to give a few chills.
The narrator did a decent job. Not great, but decent. The only serious complaint I have about the narration is that the voice used for the Norwegian girl sounded very much like the voice used for the Japanese girl, including the accent. That was a significant enough issue to be distracting and confusing at times.
