Barrett was amazing, really made every character sound unique and like I was part of the story.
Kill The Boy Band has some good things going for it: it's a great depiction of teenage girls and their friendships. The performance is deadpan and entertaining. The slang is understandable without taking away from the story.
It starts off funny. But the second half of the book is just disturbing and sickening. Weirdly psychotic in its treatment of the boy band at the center of the story. It also contained some harsh ableism (putting down of the mentally ill), sexism, and homophobia. By the end, I just wanted it to be over so I could move on to a different book.
The voice work on this makes it ten times better than it should be. Barrett brings these characters to life and I could NOT stop listening! If you want a crazy and progressively dark insight on the life on some crazy fangirls this is your book. Filled to the brim with pop culture and revelations to keep your head spinning and invested for hours on end. I believe this is a book that works better in audio form. But it's obviously not for everyone...
