Great story, but narration is a little bland

I really liked this book. This is a futuristic sci-fi dystopian novel divided into related stories told from the different characters' point of view. What is scary about this book is how plausible everything seems. It is a future with food shortages and lots of regulations on everything. I listened to the Audible audio version of this book, and as much as I liked this story, I found the narration only mediocre. It wasn't bad, but the tone of voice was pretty flat - I feel like a more exciting and varied voice can add even more excitement to the story. But overall, if you like dystopian sci-fi, I suggest giving this book a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Awesome read!!!

Wow!! What a brilliant idea for a book. I love the short stories interconnect to weave the bigger picture. The way the whole book flows is wonderfully engaging. I never wanted it to end.

I do not wish to give away too many details, because you really have to experience this book. It is a well crafted Dystopian society that is brilliant and terrifying at the same time. I was hooked on the first story and then blow away by one line at the end of the second. It just gets better from there.

It is much scarier than I expected. There are some seriously horrific topics covered. It was scary in a very real way. Each new story adds another level to the dark read. You would think through such short stories that a world could not be created with detail. Amazingly, that is not how it goes down. There is such a wealth of detail created through the connections.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Dave Thompson, who is terrific. He had quite a job of voicing all these stories. He keeps things distinct and brings fresh life to each new story. His energy and pace enhance the read. I really enjoyed his tone and would love to hear more of his work.

I noticed there is more to this book, perhaps even a series. I really hope it all comes out in audio. And i hope it has the same narrator and feel!

Disclosure - I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, opinions and ratings are my own.
