I don't believe I would read another book by either. The narrator was terrible and annoying to say the least with a whiny tone and repeated the same up and down pitch of every single line she spoke through the entire book. The author had a great concept, great imagery and compelling story. The problem was the execution. I actually found it difficult to finish the book. The repetition of key points (no spoiler examples) made it not only annoying to hear them for the 10th to 15th time they were mentioned but also made it painfully obvious as to where the book was going as contrast to the points stressed throughout the entire book. Such as that she was new with no friends at the Academy. She must have said this 10 times per chapter. I will not be finishing the series. I also feel as if there was a contradiction between making Gwendolyn smart yet stupid at the same time. Things that were plainly obvious she repeatedly skipped over that should have been even her general knowledge not just the reader.
I enjoyed the concept and lore of the story. Although the love story was a bit dry and boring the mystery was enough to keep the focus no matter how predictable.
The narrator was just terrible in every way. I apologize I can't say it better but she was just not suited to narrate this peticular title.
Yes I have already recommended it to everyone I know. There are a few stretches in the association of the facts to the theory but overall it makes so much more sense then other theories about Obama and why he is such a failure. I only wish that more of America listened and understood before they had re-elected him. Impeachment?
Has really given me the ability to look in the right place for information now.
Very objective and attempts to refute his own claims in order to prove them.
Not at all.
I actually liked just about everything about this. It had its slow moments but the narration, story, characters were all great. It was a bit predictable but I really would like to see a second book continue the story.
The modern setting and twist they put on zombies was quite good. It wasn't what you traditionally know about zombies which was nice.
I feel the association with Alice in Wonderland is a bit of a stretch. While I am aware that the idea of "Underland" is open to be interpreted and told many ways and does not have to follow an AiW theme it still just in no way resembled a trip to an alternate universe through a rabbit hole. I see where the attempt to make the connection was but I just feel that the title is a bit misleading as a fan of Underland stories. But as a stand alone book was well worth the listen and I strongly recommend.
