The narration was, in my opinion, spot on! a wonderful performance! Very clever use of science fiction to explore sophsticated philosophical concepts. Had me smiling as every new twist was cleverly revealed. Really enjoyable.
I loved this as much as Brave New World and the philosophical themes, in a way, hark back to Huxley or Orwell (although I hesitate to put many Authors in that league).
Although, it could just as similarly be likeded to Planet of the Apes!
In any case Beckett has really intruiged me with his notion of what life really is, or isn't.
The Narration was brilliant!! Kate Rudd - you are a star!!I also found the literary and philosophical themes really stimulating and refreshing for a YA novel. John Green is something else!
The night of the broken trophies!
Kate Rudd brings Hazel Grace to the story! She brings all her feelings and all her pain, her heartache, her love, her fear, her courage, her sense of humour and her quirkiness.
Kate Rudd you rock!
"You will laugh, you will cry, you will be changed forever" Cheesy but true!
Really Really Goooood Book!!
The concept of the vase of stars - beautiful! The portrayal of the true love between Will and Layken is spot on. Kirsten is a great addition to the 'family' and "Suck and Sweet time" is a sweet idea too!However, in 'Point of Retreat', as in 'Slammed' the constant references to the Avett Brothers made the story feel very un-original like the author was borrowing themes all the time. I myself am an Avett Brothers fan, but surely there are other influences on this author.I also felt the "butterflying" thing was wayyyyy overdone! You can go too far with a joke.
Possibly. Only to resolve the continuing story of Will and Layken. And if Colleen Hoover stopped referencing other artists all the time.
NO!! NEVER!! This was the worst narration I have ever heard. I found it very difficult to listen and at several points, considered giving up. He mumbles, has no change in pitch at all, he mispronounces words (including the names of characters!) and the performance is totally devoid of emotion.
