I really like Betty White. Her honesty and integrity are refreshing in a world where those things can be hard to find. She and I are also kindred spirits where animals are concerned. Those stories were the best part of this book for me, as I could totally relate to them. But there weren't many of those, and I found the book to be overall lacking in depth. I enjoyed listening to Betty read it, but I was a little disappointed. Still like & admire the author, though!
I just don't see what all of the hype was about. It's a pretty twisted story - a group of teens is forced to compete with each other to the death for the amusement of spectators. But I didn't even find it very interesting or well written. Maybe teenagers would enjoy it, but I wouldn't recommend this book to other adults.
Entertaining, Endearing, & Relevant
They don't just read the book, they ARE the book. Very well acted.
I absolutely loved this audiobook. It was performed so well by the readers that I felt as though I were listening to a play. A funny, touching, important story that sucks you in from the first words. Very well done.
