I'm actually still listening to this, and it's a good novel. But what is it with American narrators? They perform like we're an audience of 6 year-olds, or like they're doing the voiceover for a detergent commercial. I usually avoid American narrators for that reason, but I really wanted to get this audiobook, so now I have to put up with this bright, bouncy, optimistic, sing-song delivery. This is a dystopian novel, for heaven's sake. It shouldn't be read like it's Winnie the Pooh. But some people won't mind this, I suppose.
Struggled to finish. Lacks detail in word building, with slow plot. Found characters frustrating in inability to achieve anything. Generally unsatisfied.
shocking, in tradition of handmaids tale but worse. Not for the faint hearted. An interesting read.
I have no idea who would enjoy this story of incest on an island with an unsatisfying ending. I kept listening hoping it would make sense in the end, but no such luck.
