In the up-and-coming trend of dystopian fiction, this can definitely hold its own. You can't help but love Surplus Anna and want to see her freed of her situation. I became so involved in the story, tears flowed at its end. Beautiful example of love. It's also a series (perhaps a triology?), and I'm glad I get more time with the characters.
The ending was beautiful. A perfect ending, tragic, but necessary.
Charlotte Parry did a great job reading the story. The only thing I didn't like was you could hear her swallowing as well as hearing her mouth move.
The end! Read it!
