There are two parts to this audio book. The first got my attention and held it - which takes Green up to age 12 - and goes along with the description of the book. When I started listening to part two, the book goes down hill due to repeated lesbian acts, molesting minors, people being possessed of gods, and stating "there is no such thing as sin". I wish the description of the book would have included this information (especially since it is a dominant theme in part two) - I wouldn't have wasted my time with it.
The book was not very original in my opinion. I felt that there were too many similarities between the Harris' characters and those of Stephenie Meyer (I could list them, but I don't want to give away any spoilers). Also there too many sex scenes... I almost didn't bother to finish the book because it was getting to a point that it was just overdone. Luckily, it stopped and the story got back on track, just to come to an abrupt, anticlimactic end. Another thing, I dislike the way the narrator makes every male in the story sound like a caveman - and Bill the boyfriend sounds especially dim-witted.
Overall, a disappointment.
