What would have made The Fever better?
Subjective narrator following each possible cause for the outbreak taking you inside the minds of the girls. Needed more connection and details as opposed to repetition.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
Fascinating idea, loosely based on actual events, girls become sick from unknown ailment. Author minimally explored possible causes: was it teenage hysteria, waterborne virus, STD? Repetition runs rampant and frustration increases knowing this book could be much better. The narrator is detached, floating above storylines, causing a feeling of disconnection to characters motives and emotions. Near the end when we're allowed into more interactions and explanations, it's too late.
How could the performance have been better?
The female narrator was pleasant, while Kirby Heyborne was an awful choice and Joe Barratt's fatherly voice was unbearable. With the semi-erotic undertones of the girls, the dad's voice seemed perverse and gave me the heebie jeebies.
Audible...why is it so difficult to find and or cast appropriately sounding young male narrators? Is the pool that shallow or is a new casting director needed? May I submit my application?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointment at potential unmet.

I expected this to be better. I love to read and I read a LOT. This had too little substance and focused too much on teenage sex. I'm glad it wasn't any longer. The narration was good.
