I suppose dystopia is a bit of a misnomer, no one in this world think's it's ideal, but they cope as they can and do their best to ignore the uncomfortable truths of their tragic society. Callie, the desperate protagonist, will do whatever it takes to provide for her young, sick brother, Tyler. And let me tell you, she does. Now, if you don't get chills at the end of the book, you need to go back and listen to it again (I plan to anyways, because what's revealed at the end makes you question everything!). Rebecca Lowman does a truly great performance, very well paced and I just love how she makes every character so distinct. I recommend it to any fan of Divergent or Uglies, this book is a start of a very good (two book) series.
The varied voice acting of Robert Glenister made this a real winner in my book! From the gruff protagonist to the chirpy secretary to the oh so evil... well, I won't spoil it, because it's a real kicker. Jo Rowling (under the pseudonym of Robert Galbraith) writes another great detective mystery, akin to the page-turning, take-your-breath-away, I-can't-believe-I-missed-that! mysteries oh her other famous series. The Cuckoo's Calling has a real pull, and if you aren't turned away by some of the rough language, I think you'll just love it.
