Wonderful Story!

Justin M Woodward's writing reminds me of Joe Hill's attention to detail, suspense and character development with touches of humor. I hope he keeps writing and publishing! I also hope he keeps using Ryan Drean for his narrator. Drean's voice really brings the story to life and he is excellent at portraying the different characters.

This story kept me on the edge of my seat anxious for the next twist and nervous for Tyler and the predicaments he kept stumbling into. This was a fun, unexpected and nail biter of a book.

Great Book from a first time author

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I'd recommend this book to people who like fantasy novels with lots of twists and turns.

What other book might you compare The Variant to and why?

This novel reminds me of shows like Stranger Things and Coraline by Neil Gaiman.

Have you listened to any of Ryan Drean’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Ryan Drean knocks it out of the park and hits all the high notes, I loved his performance!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There was, but I can't say it without giving spoilers!
