I lovvvvvved this book so much! I couldn't help but listen to it over and over again! It was so exiting. So much adventure!
I listened to Girl with All the Gifts and liked Flinty Williams' narration. This time, she's screechy, highlighting the overall whingey tone of the series. We've gone through two and I'm avoiding any more. The characters are as you'd expect: girl after girl is full of jealousy and self-doubt. It would have been refreshing if Liz Kessler gave Emily an adventure that periodically dealt with friend issues vs friend issues that obliterate a so-so adventure. I would like these girl-centered books to break from tradition and make girl protagonists who aren't absorbed by petty conflicts. And such whiners. Ugh.
