This book is the worst narrated audiobook I have ever listened to. The narrator used very bizarre voices for many of the characters , I almost could not listen to her.
The premise of the story is good and its nice that sixteen year olds are not the main characters in this dystopian story...for once. I am curious to see what happens next but I fear that the story is heading in a hopeless direction. I hope I am proven wrong in that assumption. I am very glad the next installment is read by someone else!

Story and premise is imaginative and definitely held my interest. Consider purchasing a paper or ebook. However, I found myself wincing at the over acted narration. The narrator feels the need to use a different voice for every character however the narrator can't do other voices, so they come off like bad impressions. A lone southern accent in an massive underground bunker hundreds of years in the future? A weasel like voice for the villain? It's too much. The pacing and enunciation are off. Bizarre giggles sporadically and then she breaks into baby talk into Part 4. It's not just distracting, it’s awful. I will be avoiding Minnie Goode in the future.

I didn't enjoy this book. There were too many holes in it. It was not believable. I think it is better suited to a teenage audience.
Fast-paced & interesting with lots of human-interest stories. The protagonist is not a teenager, which makes a nice change. If there were more in the series I'd be eagerly awaiting them.
It's not very often that I pick up a Sci Fi book, but this story has me hooked. The characters are all very interesting, the story line is unique and had me constantly trying to work out what was going to happen - and getting it wrong which is great. Unpredictable, I like it.
The narrator I found nice to listen to, she acted the story out well, and was very expressive and easy to follow. Every character had a distinctive voice, yes some where annoying, but it really was only the unlikable characters that had annoying voices which didn't bother me at all.
I highly recommend this series, I hope Mr Howey continues on with a new series in this world after Dust...

Some good ideas throughout this one. Really needed an editor. Part one painfully sexist
