I was very unimpressed with this book and many of the interactions of the characters. I was really surprised because this is the author of The Hunger Games books, and those books are fantastic. I decided this book must have been written with younger readers in mind. Still, that being said, its very loose with its details and has lots of loose ends. I did not enjoy listening to it, but I think kids 10 or younger might.
It's really funny when I listen to the characters talk to each other. The conversations rarely feel genuine unless its the sheriff. The sheriff talks like a sheriff. I had a hard time with the other characters, liking or disliking them... believing them at all. I am going to say it might be because this is abridged. Other than that.... I would be happy if most of the people in this book get eaten.
Still, its an average to below-average listen.
