Psychological thriller esque
This is one where the performances were great! Paced nicely and engaging tones.
The bad kid!
I am partial to psychological thrillers with twists, and add in evil children and I'm there! That being said, this had some cheesy turns of plot - but it was entertaining enough to get me through exercising!
I love a good end of civilization due to unintended consequences.
The way the consequences of humanities actions played out through the series.
Not really. I enjoyed it, but never found my self listening after I was done with my workout or drive. I love those books where you sit in the garage just listening to a little more rather than go inside. This was not one.
This is part of a series of 3. I really like when I find series that are tied together and give me many many hours of audio. It was engaging enough that I listened to all three back to back.
Most: Story premise
Least: Got very slow moving, it was hard to pay attention and keep up.
I thought the story and plot were great. I almost wish I would have read the book on this one. The performance was way too slow moving and interest waned. I did like it enough to listen to the end. I listened to the teaser for the next in series at the end, and I'll probably DL that because the story WAS a good story.
I've heard worse.

ZZZZZZZZZZZ. Not one to listen to if you are doing something that easily distracts you.
Sure! I keep getting audiobooks of real books that I adored in my youth. I need to stop doing that. So far it's been a dud. I thought this was the best book ever when I read it the first time 20 years ago. After this listen, not so much. I think the narration/audioness of it took it out of my imagined awesome voice and put the characters in something different so it was hard for me to really dig it. It was well done, but instead of being profound like the book it came off uncomfortable.
Leading lady of course!
FO SHIZZLE. I'll make sure to read it.
I'm a lame critic, I listen to audiobooks to exercise with and apparently my standards for being engaged and swept up in the story are high. I rarely love anything these days and I'm getting super frustrated! If you read this send me suggestions for fast paced and engaging things!
I enjoyed this quite a bit. Some of the anecdotal stories got a little long in the tooth. Introverts don't care for anecdotal stories! Doh! The science/history was quite fascinating and it left me with a sense o how to improve using my natural talents.
I found the accent/acting distracting. I found it hard to follow. I've not seen the movie and had no expectations. . just couldn't get into it. Not gripping for moi.
No, don't like to listen to things more than once!
Good southern accents
I suspect I liked this because it was set in the south and was a great depiction of the culture I grew up in, rather than because it was such an awesome gripping tale. It was good, and I enjoyed the whole thing - but it wasn't exceptional.
