The story was well written for what it was. It did a nice job of capturing a slice of modern life. It is probably my fault for not reading the reviews closer, but I was expecting science fiction. This was a teen anxst story with a Hurricane background. Not terribly exciting really.
No real climax to the book. A little too pat in the story line. Was expecting something more along the lines of "Wool". My bad for expecting it to be science fiction.
Yes. Does a find job of reading.
I wouldn't read it. I barely finished this one.
If you are thinking about getting this because you liked "Wool", "Dust" or any of that series, don't bother. Not in the same ball park.
I am an Australian woman who enjoys reading many different styles of books, from history to sci fi and mystery to poetry. I also love to listen to the same whilst not paying attention to other things. I aim for my reviews to be short and succinct so that they are easy to read.
I bought this book because I enjoyed the Silo books. Am I sorry? No I'm not but nor am I particularly excited by it.
NARRATOR – The narrator does a good job with the material he had. I found him a tad stolid but that could have been the story. Sometimes it is very hard to tell. He did a good job with different voices and his accent wasn’t too annoying. In this book the narrator is average.
STORY – This is a story that lends itself well to airport listening or reading. Nothing exceptional or unpredictable happens and to be quite honest I found it a little boring. If you enjoyed Heller’s “Something Happened”, then this book may be for you but this book doesn’t have the same characterisation. In other words not a lot happens.
I would recommend this book as bit of a time filler for someone going on a journey where you did not have to think too much.
