I used immersion on the Kindle fire hd (which syncronizes the audio and print). So I can't say which is better. However, if I had to choose, I think I liked the audio version so much I would have to choose the audio over the print version. MacLeod Andrews did such a great job of pacing the entire book. There was nothing lost in the narration.
I loved Maggie. From the first chapter when we are introduced to the connection between Pete and Maggie to the very last page, I was pulling for Maggie.
In addition, I liked the interaction between Scott James and Leland.
I did listen/read to this audiobook in one sitting. It was raining here today and it was such a great read on such a gloomy day.
I would probably listen to Relic again because I was turning the pages so fast that I am sure I missed some of the details. I didn't see the movie and from what I have read in the reviews, it probably is a good thing I missed it.
I liked the strong characters within the story. However, it was the epilogue that did it for me because it answered every question I had during the story. I can't think of a question that wasn't answered. I have read books where the story ended and I'm asking, "yeah, but what about....?" That isn't the case in this book.
Another thing I liked about the story was that this book could have really been a gory piece of literature. Certainly people died in a very unpleasant way but the details of the gore were left to the imagination of the reader. I have really grown tired of authors who think that they must explain every detail of a story.
I would love to listen to more books read by David Colacci. He kept the suspense and tension of the story balanced. He didn't over dramatize the scary moments which added to the story. He enhanced the story by allowing the words of the author to carry the tension. I thought he didn't a fine job.
I liked the first couple of chapters, the young boys, Margo trying to escape certain death and the book making her desperation so clear. There were many moments which moved me.
