I have enjoyed Dan Wells before, but he never hooked me really deeply, it felt the same here. the book had a decent premise and a fine plot, but it never really launched in my mind. this might still have been a great listen if the narrator had been good, but her depiction and voice really turned into a barrier. Roxanne Hernandez voiced several characters in a patronizing, falsely jovial tone. I thought it might be situational at first, but she carried that tone through every peril and victory. it probably wouldn't have kicked me out of the experience if the story had grabbed me, but with both feeling mediocre, I had to force myself to finish the book.

A good book with a talented narrator. Believeable and exciting plot ready for the next
Story is fun but could do with a bit more flesh. Performance off-putting, really bad.
To me Dan Well's Partials trilogy was the best post apocalyptic series I have ever read. This is not Partials. I found that the vision of the LA Getto was rather depressing, and I lacked empathy with any of the characters. Basically it brought out all the negative aspects of Mexican culture and left all the good elements aside.
The performance was also a bit hit and miss... sometimes great, but then just tonally completely off (especially in the first 10 minutes).
If you haven't read partials, go read it... if you have... save your time.
