The idea and plot is a good one - the idea that the world is overpopulated, and a plot to release a deadly strain of influenza will help "bring it back into balance," so to speak. But the author isn't the best writer. First of all, I find it hard to believe young 20 something's who smoke pot are the brains behind the top level research at the CDC. Secondly, other than the fact that Stewart is in a wheelchair and is Asian, and that Jenna is African American, we have no idea what these people look like. Third, some of the story lines are just too implausible. Add in the word "quipped" about 8 million times and some rabbit trails where the author diatribes about his evolution vs. creationism beliefs (yes, we get it... you're anti-God) and the whole thing loses steam about 1/3 of the way through. I moved onto another book, but may pick it up to listen again and finish it if I get bored.

the story was predictable
Did Charles Carroll do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
not great but ok
Was The Culling worth the listening time?
Any additional comments?
I might have not minded the poor story, or narration, but when every other word is the F word or similar, The author is a word smith can't he think of anything better to say, even if the character would swear he could think of a more creative way to say the same thing
Some of the best authors think of better ways to say things with out swear especial use of the F word. In my opinion it is just being lazy.
