I hate how much I enjoyed this book. This was definitely a guilty pleasure. It's a young adult novel. It's childish. It's often silly. It's extremely clichéd. It has huge gaping holes in its plot, and it made me role my eyes a lot. However, I kept listening because despite all of that it was entertaining and kept me engaged.
Another surreal aspect of this book came about halfway through when I googled the author and found out he is the 'Million Little Pieces' guy. I never read that book, but I distinctly remember Oprah Winfrey tearing him a new one on national TV for being a liar back in the early 2000's. That has no bearing on the quality of this book... It's just weird.
Neil Kaplan does a good job narrating this book, but at times he gets a little goofy (for lack of a better description). I'm not sure if this was his fault or the writing, but its of little consequence. He's a better than average narrator.
Bottom line; I'm not going to jump through any hoops to continue this series, but I'm not opposed to the idea. I'll probably get around to it eventually.

I felt like I was taking a chance when I downloaded this one. Now that I finished it in record time ( because I could not put it down ) I am sad it is finished. I read somewhere that this is a TEENS story wrapped around SI-FY. Okay that is true but to miss this one is to really miss something. I am 59 and simply glad I took a chance. I hope there are a bunch more of them coming out as a series.
