I really loved this book in the beginning, but soon realized the material the author had to work with was pretty thin and the book soon got very boring. It was a major disappointment when it got to the trial which was wrapped up in what seemed like minutes -- a real anticlimax. The narration was entertaining in the beginning, but the "goodfella" accents got really wearing after a while. Would not recommend to anyone.
This was the most ridiculous, childish book I've ever read -- or should I say listened to. The story was dumb, the characters vapid clichés, and the narration pathetic. Nate sounded like some Hardy Boys show character, Veek's accent was some mishmash of Chinese and Indian, nowhere near what it should have been. I sometimes had trouble telling Roger's voice from Tim's, etc. When it got to the crazy end section with the overseers and the slaves and the monsters, I had to force myself to listen just to see what kind of stupid ending Clines would come up with. Yikes.
