Each section had a defined purpose. I like the way the author draws the scene enough to carry a mental picture while I'm listening without delving into excruciating detail for its own sake.
Didn't laugh or cry, but there were sections I enjoyed enough to listen to again when the story finished.
I'm going against the prevailing opinion. I enjoyed Alice Eve's performance more in the audio book than the movie. She did a fun accent for 'Scotty' and varied her cadence to define the rest of the characters. I never felt that she was doing 'funny voices.'
My only criticism (spoiler) she didn't do that awesome scream that she did in the movie.
BTW, Eve did a better job portraying male characters in this story than most male voice actors do portraying female characters. I’m looking at you Michael York in Brave New World!
I am clearly in the minority. If in doubt, I think the sample provided is a good representative for the rest of the story.
