This is the story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge. The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. But there are always those who hope, who dream. These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple. They are given the very thing they profess to want: They are allowed outside.

I struggled with the beginning, but once it got going I couldn't stop listening.

The narrator was easy to listen to, I felt some of the voices were too exaggerated but overall okay.

I loved the story as dystopian post apocolyptic is my favorite genre.

From the Book of Revelation to The Road Warrior, from A Canticle for Leibowitz to The Road, storytellers have long imagined the end of the world, weaving eschatological tales of catastrophe, chaos, and calamity. In doing so, these visionary authors have addressed one of the most challenging and enduring themes of imaginative fiction: The nature of life in the aftermath of total societal collapse.

Some stories I just couldn't get into. I felt no empathy for the characters. Overall it was a good read, not great.
