This started off badly. The audio narrator with a perfectly nice voice, gives the then 17-yr-old Carrie the voice of a 5-yr-old. Flash forward 5 years. Carrie sounds a little older now, but it doesn’t matter because she’s basically portrayed as a simpleton—super-duper naïve (the world is collapsing and she’s been living through it; even a kid would be less naïve.), totally idealistic, can’t say much of anything intelligent, passive, yet manages to take care of her younger brother and sister. She also blinks a lot.
Enter Greg, who inexplicable hates her on sight and is horrid to her. Absolutely awful, even though his grandmother and everyone in the community loves her. (I don’t know why except she’s a work horse.)
There’s also Carrie’s sister, who acts like everything is fine and dandy, shirks the chores necessary to survive, and almost gets everyone killed.
And that’s when I gave up—somewhere around hour 4.
I am more likely to believe in a zombie apocalypse than in who these characters are or even the set up of how they manage to survive their own stupidity.
It is a great story and the acting made the story come to life. I had already read the book and loved it so u wanted to listen to it. It was wonderful.
