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.

Would you try another book from Hugh Howey and/or Minnie Goode?

Never, ever, EVER from Minnie Goodie. I've listened to hundreds of books and never written a review- but I had to about this narrator in hopes that she doesn't read another book out loud. She was so distracting when she talked in her "voices" that is was hard to focus on the very good story. Did no one listen to her before or after she narrated this book? She sounds like someone trying to read a book to a 5yr old-and failing at that. I really enjoyed the story.. and would defiantly listen to another book from Hugh Howey as long as Minnie is not involved.

Would you be willing to try another one of Minnie Goode’s performances?

Never
