"Eve", the main character, bumbles her way through a post-apocalyptic America and makes selfish choices. So unrealistic and the story simply does not get stronger. I usually enjoy Young Adult books because of the underlying message for growing adolescents; but I cringe at the life lessons taught by this character.
Ellen Hopkins gives realistic narrative from the perspective of a 17-year old girl spiraling quickly out of control. Excellent narrator.
Most of Jodi Piccoult's books have deep, often troubling moral issues as the base of her story. "Leaving Time was no exception. I found the twist at the end a bit confusing; although it was well foreshadowed. More development would have helped. The end should not have attempted to be neatly wrapped in a bow, which is not this author's typical style. If this is your first Jodi Piccoult novel, don't judge the rest by this one.
The beginning was really slow. A nice "punch" to get it going would have better held my interest.
It really didn't make a lot sense from the get go. I read a lot of Sci-fi, which is why I reached for a new author. This story never hooked me.
The narrator could have used more emotion; but I doubt it would've made a difference for me.
This book was not for me. I took a chance and came back with nothing. However, I will continue to look for new & different authors to try. That's why books are so great. Everyone has story.
The story was really hard to follow. I purchased this because I was given book 2 in the series. I wanted to listen to book 1 first. Not my kind of book.
The narrator was not very interactive with the voices. I found myself re-listening to parts in order to understand the plot line.
Fantasy genre lovers may like the story.
