Ugh, what is this post apocolytical trendiness. Quasi Biblical themes. The narrator was very good, which is why I trudged through this. I suppose the market for this story is Hunger Game fans. I prefer more originality.
So many hours, so little happens. If you are waiting for the birth, hoped for by the end of book 2, you have to listen to 17 hours and 22 minutes of this book. She also had a problem ending it. It seemed like it came to a natural end, but then it kept going.
The 37 year old main character looses her job and has no direction or plans for the future. It reads like sex in the city, except you just don't like the character. I was waiting for resolution, and didn't get it.
I don't really get the hype for this book. I felt like I had skipped something. The narrator was okay, but occasionally his voice got annoying, shrill when he was trying to show excitement. Maybe teenagers would like the book and it is just not one that can bridge it's genre gap.
None of the characters are likeable, I suppose this is OK once in a while, but I prefer stories where I root for someone, and enjoy the characters.
She is the best reader I have ever heard in my many years of Audible membership. I really hope she reads other books for us.
The reader doesn't skip ALL of the four letter words, but some, and I appreciate it, King doesn't need that to write an amazing story.
I found the story a little preachy and predictable. If you like stories about the rich who have fallen on hard times and middle age people still love-shy this book is for you.
I was disappointed. I thought it would have some humor but it was very pessimistic.
I would probably given up reading this book, but the reader was excellent. I am reaching saturation on the ware vampire genre.
