Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
His style of fast reading with hardly any pauses really took away from the book. No performance what's so ever.
Any additional comments?
I love post apocalyptic books and have listened to a bunch. I don't know what it was exactly but it just didn't seem very good. Maybe it was the fact that this guy risked his life for a small dog or that this old man hooks up with this twenty something year old women. I also didn't care for how they kept saying the machine. Also the narrator made this very hard to listen to. All to often the story hinges on the reading style of the narrator. If you can't get into it and the reading style bugs you, really enjoying the story is basically impossible in my opinion.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
The narrator! No distinguishing between voices, even between sexes. Not quite monotone, but close enough. The most disturbing thing that makes me want to stick an ice pick in my ear is the lack of audio editing!!! Did anyone even listen to this think before it was put out. This is the digital age. When the narrator misses something, you should at least go back and re-record it. I'm sure I would have enjoyed the story more and perhaps given it higher ratings if it just wasn't so mind numbing to listen to the narrator.
How could the performance have been better?
