What a waste of time! Xenophobic, fearful, and a general horror. The plot is a twist on the old X-Men "fear of mutants" conceit, from the POV of an unbelievable mutant hunter. Mutants have been banished to Europe and anywhere else "not USA" because of an 'uprising' which makes them sound like an unruly underclass, not supermen. Those mutatns who remain are hunted and killed. This premise is simply given without any effort to make it plausible. There is little character building. The plot is carried almost exclusively by action, or by the voice of a narrator. Dialogue is faux 'street tough' and laughable in it's efforts to be current, as if it it was lifted from MTV interviews with Snoop Doggy Dog. An additional treat is that the narration of this audiobook is atrocious. The reader has one 'voice' and that one is not conducive to reading dialogue, which this book relies on heavily. The publisher calls this dialogue 'gritty' but I would call it 'illiterate' or 'dim' or just bad. I did not like the three hours I endured.
