I least like the random music scores. I find them very unnecessary, loud, and just plain awful. They also detract from the reader and when the music scores do play, they almost drown out the reader.
In general I liked the book in it's entirety.
I would say you get a sense of how the story is from an elderly person's point of view, which is how the story was meant to be percieved.
As always with any audio book, the narrator can make or break the story for me. If a narrator simply drones on and on I lose interest very quickly. The production can also make or break the book as well. In some cases I have listened to audio books that had a musical score that was quite annoying and loud, to the point of drowning out the narrator. In this instance the production was excellent, as was the narrator Stephen Lang. Stephen did a great job bringing the story out as well as the characters and I was fully engrossed in the book with my imagination. As for the story line, it really captured my imagination about the possibilities of quantum physics and mechanics. And the possibility of human thought being able to do the unimaginable and bend space, time, and reality by simple will.
I would have to say Dean's other series Fear Nothing and Seize the Night, also By The LIght of The Moon. Both relate to this book because it talks about things that are beyond our 5 senses, quantum physics, and people who gain extraordinary abilities.
I enjoyed all of the characters but if I had to pick a favorite, it would have to be Barty (Bartholomew). He had an uncanny wisdom for someone so young, and despite the hardships he endured, he always came out for the better.
There were many times I both laughed and cried. I was saddened when Barty lost his mom to cancer near the end of the book.
Very good story line. Very captivating and captures my mind as the story unfolds.
All of them really.
I love Luke Daniels as a reader. He does excellent voice inflections and brings out the emotions of the characters. I found at times there were tears in my eyes when there was sorrow and joy in my heart where times were good in the story
