Nothing could have made this a better listening experience. The overall topic and story of the book is appalling and disappointing.
Next, I will be listening to Lost in Time by Melissa De La Cruz.
I rarely choose a book based on it's narrator.
There are no redeeming qualities for an author, or a story, that pits innocent children against each other to the death for entertainment.
The entire concept of this book is contradictory. The author creates characters who hate the fact that, as children, they are forced to ruthlessly, shamelessly, murder each other for the entertainment of the masses. The people of the story despise the practice and yet there is underlying revelry for it. The general public encourage the appalling and disgusting tradition by watching it, gambling on it, even sponsoring it. It makes me ill that in our real world, people spend their hard earned money doing exactly the same thing by purchasing this book, or watching it's namesake film. I regret the money I spent on this book, and wish I could go back in time to undo that decision. I do not, can not, and will not ever condone any person financially benefitting from child murder. Anyone who purchases this book should be ashamed of themselves for encouraging this sick minded author to write such atrocities.
