Unparalleled in its brilliance

I've read the ebook of Why You Were Taken and loved it. Now I've listened to the audio book and fallen in love all over again. Roshina Ratnam does a top notch job as the narrator and totally nailed every character. The imagination that drives this story is wild. Ms Lawrence takes you on the ride of your life with this book. It's fast, furious and scary all at the same time. But driving the whole package is the unparalleled genius of the writing. The story is this side of believable, and that's what makes it all the more frightening. I've read the book, I've listened to the book and now I want to see this made into a movie. A first class story, which you simply have to read AND listen to. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT

Very original

Any additional comments?

It took a little while to get into this book and at first it was a bit confusing with the different view points from different people, but then I got used to it and I got completely immersed in this parallel Johannesburg where this story takes place. I cannot say that I particularly liked Kirsten or Seth, the 2 main characters, but the story is good enough to make that ok. I love JT's originality and cannot wait to read the second book in this series.
