I found the first book of this series to be engaging and original, a dystopia that stood above many other books of the same genre. I anticipated the sequel and now that I've listened to the whole book almost nonstop, it doesn't disappoint. There are many poignant moments, especially the ending. I found it to be both hopeful and devastating, which is a running trend throughout the book - you're happy the character has survived one more close call, but you just know that in the background the world is changing irreparably. By the way, if you haven't read the first book, I suggest you do before listening to the sequel, or otherwise some situations won't make as much sense. I can't see how there could be a third book in this series, though, the ending felt quite definite, which is kind of sad. The narrator does a great job!

What disappointed you about Exodus?
That the book version wasn't at my library. If I'd been reading, rather than listening, I would have been able to speed-read through all the dull bits.
Any additional comments?
Despite my misgivings, I wanted to find out what happened next, and I downloaded book two. I'm nearly done, but have lost all patience with the thing--so deliberately sought out spoilers just to find out how the story ends without having to listen to another damn minute. And now I'm REALLY glad I did because the ending is unforgivably trite.

I am loving this series of books and up until now thought the narration was wonderful. However the Scottish accent for one of the characters was so awful- a mixture of Indian/ Jamaican/ Irish, that I found it impossible to connect with the character. Such a shame because for the main character she was spot on! Will still listen to the next book though as the story is just magical
The picks up where book 1 finished and keeps flowing at a nice pace towards its conclusion. now for book 3
