This book is a futuristic novel, set in post-global warming North America. Getting over that, this is a gripping novel. I much prefer this narrator's interpretation of the different accents to those done by the author, Suzanne Collins, whose affected southern accents (see online videos) are painful and confusing. This is the only book yet during which I was in danger of driving off the road while listening. I think the audiobook is even better than the written book. It is young adult, and it is "light reading," but it is also creative and interesting--I highly recommend it. Not for young children--parents should preview it if they are considering it for their middle school or junior high-aged children.
