Great new sci-fi series

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I really enjoyed this book. The author does a great job world building and developing the characters in the book. The narrator was VERY good. She really has an interesting accent and brought the characters to live. Definitely worth a credit.

Amazing!!

Don't start this one unless you have an entire afternoon for it! If not, you'll be late for every appointment because it's impossible to put down.

The opposite of nothing

Any additional comments?

Format : Audiobook )<br/>"The opposite of nothing."<br/>A great disappointment since the initial premise seems to hold out good possibilities, which blur into an apparent overreaction and slightly hysterical silliness towards the ending.<br/>Told in two timelines (1987 and a futuristic 2021), from three individual perspectives, and set in South Africa, the writing is simplistic and easy to read. An attempt to add veracity to the story is made by the earlier time line being presented in the form of a young woman's journal which not only notes her personal experiences but also lists the books she is reading and films, TV programmes and music which are playing at that moment in her life. Interspersed with these chapters are the events occuring seperately in the 'present' year of 2021 to a young man and woman. These latter lives finally draw together as the story gains momentum.<br/><br/>The narrator, Roshina Ratnam, has a pleasant if somewhat little girlie voice which fits well with the writing. Her reading is clear and well modulated with a reasonable vocal patterning for the main protagonists. But it is not enough to make this story anything more than a lightweight mystery thriller<br/><br/>I was fortunate in being gifted a complementary copy of Why You Were Taken by the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom, at my request. My thanks for that. Although quite enjoyable, and with the potential to be a very exciting and original story, for this reader it failed by trying too hard. Such a pity.
