I liked the story, pretty cool concept. I liked that the creatures were up for interpretation. I was totally drawn in to the story, and was never bored. I like the narrator too, I've listened to her before and she does a great job.
I have read many, many books and can honestly say I have never read one that was as intense as this one. There was never a moment that wasn't filled with suspense and worry. I hated it to end but since it had to I am going right away to find another book by this author. The narrator did an excellent job. I could always tell which time period The main character was in by the slight change in her voice. Excellent!
The idea is sort of original - a variation on the zombie apocalypse theme. Lots of scary parts. Overlong, I think.
The writer must have been killed by the creatures before she could explain what they were. That\'s the o ly possible explanation for this poor ending.
Excellent book. I loved the audio version. It kept me on the edge of my seat!! Well done!!
Creepy and compelling. I could feel my own world closing in as the story drew me in deeper.
Narrator was good in my opinion, but the highs and lows left me listening at top volume. This story is all about the journey and personal growth of the main character and not so much a destination. Also a lot of he said ... she said ... said the boy.
The narrator was flat and dull and the story was so slow moving. I struggled to get to the end. Skip it!!!
Very good- It was very suspenseful! Even though the narrator for every voice- you could easily distinguish who she was talking for.
In contrast to other listeners I enjoyed the readers voice, some of the characters kinda sounded like Ellen DeGeneres, however some characters had a lot of sass that wasn't captured very well. The book was really interesting and talking about the book with friends is really fun.
