masterful storyteller with cunning and crafty mind
- AudioBook Reviewer
This book is really scary.
I love the audio version more than the print version. It allows me to do other things while listening to the story.
I did enjoy the devourers internal politics, particularly the women and how they were treated.
Jen Thorpe, has a soothing voice. Overall I enjoyed her performance.
It scarred the devil out of me,
Someone said this book is scary as sh*t and I have to agree, it is. I put it down before bed and couldn’t sleep for at least an hour. I had to tell myself this kind of thing can’t happen. It can’t, it really can’t, although the author does a pretty good job making you believe it can. I had questions about what was left after “the devouring” took place, not in an apartment or a house but in the park or on a dark street. Do they have a clean-up crew? I did enjoy the devourers internal politics, particularly the women and how they were treated. There’s a revolution brewing, honey! Sleep tight tonight!
The narrator, Jen Thorpe, has a soothing voice. Overall I enjoyed her performance. Her weakness is portraying the male voice. She’s not convincing, or at least not as convincing as she needs to be. Still, it doesn’t get in the way of the story and after awhile you just accept her characterizations and continue to listen.
I found Freddi to be an unsympathetic character at first, but as things went on she learned her privilege was over, she was just there to serve the greater good. She became more sympathetic and I wanted her to win, to get away from them. She’s really out of her element, though, and when she finally stops depending on the kindness of strangers it’s almost too late.
I recommend this book. It’s fun to be scared. I’m going to suggest it to my husband because I want to mess with his head. Yes, it’s that kind of book.
