Horrific Science Fiction

I don’t think this book would normally be my type of book. It is a horror of sorts but it’s the Sci Fi aspect that really threw me off. It was hard to get into and since I was listening I noticed that if I missed ANY thing I would have to go backwards to figure out what was going on with the story.

Needless to say, this slowed me down quite a bit.

But it was Paul Licameli’s performance that kept me hanging in there. At times he sounded a bit like Mr. Smith from The Matrix. The ebb and flow of his voice was mesmerizing and quite interesting. What I absolutely loved was when something dire was happening and Paul Licameli’s voice would get all riled up as if he were in that situation. I loved it. Even the female roles were perfect. The entire audio feel of it was great. I loved the production and all of the extra sounds that were added in.

Going back to the story there are some parts that I did think were horrific (which I love!!). The whole going into the haystack thing was incredibly horrific. Like I said above though, there was a lot and a lot of people so keeping up with what was going on was lost on me. It was hard to decipher which character was who, although, they do talk to Danny Boy quite a lot so I was able to understand his character easily. The rest though? They swooshed through my brain.

There was also a whole lot at the end all smooshed into a small bit. It was a lot! Again, if you miss any of this while listening you will get lost. So many times I had to rewind!

Honestly, it was an interesting story but with all the Sci Fi I just couldn’t adjust my thinking nor my appreciation of Sci Fi. Not my favorite read but I bet the Sci Fi lovers will die over this one.

Good YA story, narrator too dramatic.

This is a very good story for young teens. I recommend the written version.
