This is a great book about going to extremes on many different levels. Like Ender's game and Snow Crash, the youth of today have much to teach us about how to live. This book is simply written with observations about society and the implications of our choices and desires for a perfection. Any age will love this book. My 5th grade little sister recommeded this to me, and I have completed graduate school. I have recommeded this book to my friends of all ages.
Yes!. I was surprised by all the negative reviews of the performance. The child narrator was appropriate given the book. I thought he did a very good job. I could not imagine having to listen to an adult try to mimic a child's voice through the whole story. if you don't like kid voices you won't like the ki-narrared story.
The story was really intriguing. The details of the experience where quite haunting -- the eye adjustments, the tooth, the obsessive counting. I like how the author explained certain things.
I would definitely recommend this story.
