Tim Curry is, as always, wonderful, but this was a disappointing end to the series. After all the mysterious buildup, you get almost no information about what has really been going on. While I understand leaving some questions unanswered, leaving them all unanswered was a weak ending to an enjoyable series.
Unfortunately, the story line begins to really deteriorate after Hunger Games. The conflicts are repetitive, and the main charcter goes from a resourceful and interesting person to just another stupid, emotional teenage girl. She's an idiot, and the male characters aren't, which I found extremely annoying. Read the first one, but skip numbers 2 and 3.
First, the narrator of this book was fabulous, just the right intonations and subtle humor. It was really well done. However, I liked this book the least of the series so far. The solution to the mystery and the resolution of one of the plot lines were implausible in a way that the other stories have not been. That said, this is always an enjoyable series, but I wouldn't start with this one.
This book was witty and a lot of fun. I enjoy the Jack Spratt series even more than the Thursday one. The narrator was engaging--an all-around great audiobook experience.
The audio presentation itself was excellent, but the book was not what I hoped. I thought it would have much more about current scientific discoveries. Instead it was more about the history of the conflict between religion and evolution. If you're interested in that topic, the reader is very engaging.
