I really liked this book, a believable world (if you don't think about it too hard), and lots of deep character development. Jones take on a Jurassic Park style tourism-trip-where-everything-goes-wrong felt fresh and futuristic. The ending I think, was, not my favorite... but it seemed like a good wrap-up on a wild adventure across the Salt Line.
Voice actor was pretty good, my one complaint is that all the men sounded very raspy and similar, or sort-of gave off an evil-villain vibe, and even some of the women I had a hard time distinguishing. These were sort of minor annoyances though and I didn't really notice it anymore about quarter of the way through the book.

Thank goodness I didn’t see the comparison to Station Eleven (which I hated) or I wouldn’t have read the book. Literary writers tackling genre (sci-fi, cli-fi, dystopia, etc.) seem to do it really well or really badly. This was quite good.
World building was good, charter development was excellent, perfect rise and fall (so many books are just one action scene after another, which gets boring).
The only caveat: you can’t be too squeamish about ticks. I had a little difficulty listening to the more graphic parts. If I had been reading, I would have skipped those descriptive parts.
