From the book summary, the cover and the audio sample, I thought this book was about a social experiment gone horribly wrong and the impact it had on real people and families. Instead it is a story in the sci-fi/horror genre which is not a type of book I enjoy. As it got more and more
I can't tell if this was a good story or not. The narration drove me nuts. Scott Brick narrates with a sing song, overly dramatic style as though each sentence in the book is somehow deeply significant. There is no subtly, no shading of weight and meaning; nothing understated. Without these, there can be no building of suspense. It is like every sentence is underlined. Melodrama instead of drama. In my opinion, the great actors and narrators can convey so much more by doing so much less. I have heard one other book narrated by Scott Brick and I felt the same way. I will never buy another.
