Where does Parasite rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It was a compelling listen. I would hold off ranking it until I've completed the series.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I did even thought the writing seemed to get boggy in the middle part of the story and seemed repetitive. Overall it held my attention from start to finish. The premise is interesting, if extremely creepy. A genetically modified parasite becomes a wildly sought after medical device. It does everything from dispensing vitamins to managing diabetes to curing cancer. All from inside the human body once implanted. But then this microscopic miracle "rebels" and people start to "sleep walk". And worse.
Any additional comments?
A word of caution: this is apparently the first in a series. The story by no means ends here.

I've been stuck in a book rut for a while now. I was hesitant when I read the reviews on this book, and series. It's been in my wish list for a while, but it's a female narrator (I prefer male) and a questionable story line.
I'm glad I took the leap. Just a few short chapters in, I was full of joy I've found a (new to me) author to follow! The story line is very well done and 'Mira Grant' does a fantastic job of giving enough detail, while at the same time not drolling on. You can't help but become caught up in this book.
Other positive notes:
*It's a good long book. I like long books when they're done right. This one is done right.
*Christine Lakin does a great job with the narration!
*The book leaves you wanting more
Only Negative: I've finished book 2 and was not as impressed with it. However, book one could stand on it's own fairly well. Book 1 does not tie up all the lose ends, or bring you to a great conclusion, but I could have walked away after book 1 and been okay with it.
Book two does leave you hanging. I haven't decided yet if I'll be in for book 3 when it comes out, or not.
