Excellent story, plot development, & character development...very inadequate narration but still a very good listen in spite of performer.
I was enjoying the book till she hung two young girls from a tree and had the eaten alive. Just too gross. I stopped listening
No reason to put such violence anywhere!!
Interesting tale from an adolescent point of view of growing up with a robot as a companion. It could have been financed by the cigarette lobby with its silly adolescent preoccupation with cigarettes.
This may be the future with it's many legal complications. Interesting glimpse of the brave new world
Well written account of a lost boy's descent into drug addiction and bouncing from one savior to another with a valuable painting of a Goldfinch in his possession. A blur of alcohol and prescription drugs dazed characters. Interesting how easily the author deals with the drug addiction as a normal pattern of behavior.
Rather depressing but extremely well written account of adolescent stumbling through life.
Fun tale but why this performer? There are so many excellent performers out there, this is like nails across a blackboard!
The death by smell is very amusing.
Felt like having to take a very boring history class. Long drawn out absurd descriptions , inane conversation, and twisted rambling plot.
Burst usuall tells a very compelling interesting story. This is like a passive aggressive slap at his publishers and audience .
A modern 1984, well written and preformed. Really pulls you into the pros and cons of our information society.
By far his weakest effort. Can't believe it received a Nubela award. Don't waste your time or money
This is the weakestest story line of the first four novels I have read so far. While the first three were fast paced highly interesting. This fourth is far from a feast., instead it is a slow plodding and not very interesting but picks up a bit at the end. I hope the rest are more like the first three.
One of the most enjoyable books I have listened to this year. The character development and story line is flawless. Truly a wonderful new fantasy author. I look forward to more books from him.
I truly disagree with Random house decision to replace narrators, Becca Battoe's narration is very appropriate and believable with her young woman's voice.
