Exciting, refreshing, and entertaining.
I like that the author has taken the time worn concept from Sci Fi of telepathy, and given it a new more realistic twist. I also love that the reader gives us the story in an adult voice, with wonderful characters, even though this is a teen book.
I really liked the inspiration for the story and the plot. Perfect ending as well. That drug me through listening to the poorly done and far to repetitious dialog. The narration was good.
Just a great laugh at my most adored SciFi classic, and a cool twist to the way we look at things. My only criticism is please Mr. Scalzi, come up with some new "he said" "she said" descriptors. When we listen to the audible version, they become monotonous.
Yes, I could not stop listening.
Even though the topic was about death and illness, the story was about life and living.
Of course he did Ptolemy perfectly.
I could not stop thinking about it after I completed it. It made me happy.
The first couple of chapters are actually hard to listen to. The writer wants us to feel the frustration Ptolemy has with his confusion, and I did. But the action picks up soon, and never stops until the end.
