This was really lame. Nothing happens except the kids meet some old people who tell them how great everthing used to be, and how kids today have pathetic lives. And this book was written in the 50's. The narrator gives a real overacted, emotional reading. NO plot, no interesting characters, just a lot of meandering.
This book was really great from the beginning to the end. It really holds your interest. It's definatly what I would call Literary Science Fiction. If your just into straight sci-fi, I think you might really like this. It's got great descriptive scenes and characters. And well read.
This was entertaining. Even though eventually not much happens, it's all put together pretty well. Rachel Leigh Cook does a great job narrating. She sounds just what I imagine the character to sound like. If you want some light popular fiction, try this.
I have to admit I didn't finish this. I gave up after about 4 hours, none of which I enjoyed. While Empire Falls was really great, this book just plodded along, I wasn't interested in any of the characters and not much was happening. I wouldn't recommend it. The narrator though was excellent
