There is nothing more annoying than a protagonist who is whiny, weak and indecisive. This book is none of that. The way a young girl is shoved into an adult world can be unsettling if you are a sensitive person, but this is life on the streets in all its brutal reality.
As for "god possession" and "no such thing as sin", this is Sci-Fi not bible literature, what did you expect?
Its actually a fairly short book, I was hoping for more, but that's how it is with all great stories. The author did a great job of wrapping things up. If you want a long book read Robert Jordan, that will put things in perspective.
This book reminded me of Enders Game with some new twists. It has a plenty of intensity in one form or another, kept me interested enough to finish it in one sitting, although I was left wanting to know what happens next. One thing I really liked was the Protagonists ability to withstand and overcome, it really drives me nuts when an otherwise strong character acts like an idiot and repeatedly makes self destructive mistakes. The narrator did an awesome job, all the voices were distinct and consistent.
The warbled effects in the beginning were kind of annoying, but they don't last long and the rest of the book more than made of for that with me.
I really hope they release the next 3 books on audio soon.
