I have been an Audible listener for over 4 years, and this book ranks at the bottom of my selections from Audibile. I have read and listened to all of the "Jake" books and have pretty much liked them. This one, however, has a plot so far away from plausible that it is bordering on foolish. The Maine accents are horrendous (take that from a native Mainer who has lived Downeast for 20 ears), and anyone who lives near the Atlantic Ocean, especially in the cold waters off Eastport, will recognize that spending any amount of time in the frigid ocean waters is deadly. The 3 year old in this book must be bionic to survive her spill in the water and getting thrown against a wooden structure after she had been kidnapped and drugged with opium for a day. I only finished listening to the book because I didn't want to "waste" my Audible credit.
Fuzzy Nation was like a science fiction fairy tale with the requisite happy ending. It will go on my list of 2nd listens.Great story, great narration, great fun!
Kudos to the author and narrators! I loved the book and think the narration was perfect. This was well worth a July credit.
I am a long-term Audible listener and have listened to hundreds of audiobooks. The narration of J. Courtney Sullivan's novel is one of the most inconsistent readings. I was amazed to hear at least three errors where characters are incorrectly identified (not Kathleen) and timeline is inaccurate (If Kathleen and Maggie leave after the July 4th fireworks, then they are leaving on July 5 - not August 5). Someone needs to do some serious editing with this audiobook.
