This was not what I expected though I really wasn't sure what it was about to begin with. Written as if it were a made for television reality series, it takes a bit to realize the evil taking place against the unwilling captives has been created by beyond-rich men with a hunger for something unique to satisfy the neverending lust in their hearts and minds.
The story is very short but seems to cover a lot of ground without bogging down in detail. I'm not really sure how to rate it as I've nothing to compare its style with other than TV or a movie. The narrator was excellent and I would enjoy hearing more of her work.
I must admit that while I might not normally read something with this kind of plot, I'm hooked so I must wait for the next book in the series. There is graphic adult language but so far very little adult content.
I received this book as a free gift from the narrator and Audible. Thank you.

A Hunger Games genre novel

What did you love best about The Preserve: Season 1.0, Volume 1?

Interesting characters. It has me wanting more. I like this type of novel with some the characters having to meet challenges, with unforeseen twists along the way.

What other book might you compare The Preserve: Season 1.0, Volume 1 to and why?

The Hunger Games. In The Preserve, you have characters put in a situation where it is be smart, adapt, and fight to survive. The ultimate game.

What about Karen Krause’s performance did you like?

Karen Krause's performance is what I would call "chipper" and "engaged". Each voice artist is unique in their own ways. The main question, was the voice artist able to "put me in the moment"? Absolutely! I am wanting to hear more of the story. Karen was able to let me see the characters through her eyes. I felt I was there.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely. I want more!!!!

Any additional comments?

Nice range of characters. Compelling read.
