It took me some time to get into the rythym of the storys, had to listen to each one more than once as I had trouble following the narrative but I have to say it was well worth it. I find I am still thinking about a whole range of ideas and concepts that came through the writing. Each narrator did a wonderful job and the writing was clever, engaging, unpredictable and very challenging. I for one am glad the writers did not compromise to the 'lowest common denominator' too much, and pull the punches on the storylines, which always leaves you open to 'preachy' and 'political' whining from the 'fraidy cats of course.
This is somewhat unrelenting in the horror it is portraying but I found that I could not turn away.
It seems each generation has an Apocalypse fear, it used to be an expected nuclear event in the simple recent past however it no longer needs to have the origin explained. Either way you are with the man and the boy all the way and 'worry' about them when you take a break from the reading.
This is not puppies and rainbows but I found it to be an excellent experience.
Totally loved this story and the reader did an excellent job!
The story was really difficult to follow due to the heavy editing or abridging, basically it has had the guts ripped out of it and is incomprehensible as a result. I have given up trying to get through it, the awful soundtrack did not help. Also there are some strange gaps with no sound at all, I checked my iphone the first few times thinking something was wrong before I got used to waiting a while for the story to continue.
Sorry to be so negative but for $30US I was not expecting this. Any chance of an unabridged version any time soon? Massive though it will be.
