    Would you try another book from Kimberla Lawson Roby and/or Micaila Millburn?

    Probably not. The storyline was pretty unbelievable from the beginning, so it was hard to really get into. I was really disappointed by the religious angle inserted at the end of the story. If this is the author's MO, I definitely won't listen to them again.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    After listening to the book, no.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Ice Limit to be better than the print version?

    Can't say; I've never seen the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Good exciting fiction


    Did Scott Brick do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    He was OK, but I didn't care for the image of the captain that he created for me. His voice for her made her come across like some sort of femme fatale at some points in the story.

    What if—whoosh, right now, with no explanation—a number of us simply vanished? Would some of us collapse? Would others of us go on, one foot in front of the other, as we did before the world turned upside down?That’s what the bewildered citizens of Mapleton, who lost many of their neighbors, friends and lovers in the event known as the Sudden Departure, have to figure out. Because nothing has been the same since it happened—not marriages, not friendships, not even the relationships between parents and children.
