Having listened to several of Mr. Robinson's offerings, this one looked interesting. Upon conclusion and review, it is not nearly as good as some of these others IMHO.
Conceptually it works, but the devil is always in the details, and there is the challenge. Gratuitous references, random violence that does not move the story forward, and at times overly dramatic reading all combine to make this a difficult listen. The story does pose some interesting concepts, to be fair, but they are not clearly made and take far too long to reveal.
Can't recommend this one, unfortunately. I wanted to.

This book was great. The characters were all fleshed out well and though the reasons for them being together were kind of basic, the elementary quality of the plot stopped there. The island and its inhabitants were quality and they were terrifying. The twists and attempts at explanation, the preview of the end, the end, and the idea that there could be more intrigue outside of the boundaries of the book made me want more. The idea that there could be an island or a tribe of people like this is the stuff of nightmares. I can not remember reading or listening to a book quite like this before. And the writing and narration were top notch. Great job guys.
Dolphin calls drizzled in terror fuel indeed!

A whirlwind of a book with intense descriptions and exciting encounters - i took one star off as i found it a little repetitive in parts but make no mistake this is a great read!
The narrator was great and i'm familiar with his work on the Jon Reznick series - Kafer has the ability to bring characters to life.
