I saw this was in a YA book box and the description sounded awesome, so I went for it. I was disappointed and finally got into this book (a tiny bit) about 2/3 of the way in. It took me ten times as long to get through than an audiobook normally would. It's hard to listen to while multitasking since so much keeps happening, but it also feels like fluff. I couldn't imagine what the writer was telling, not for lack of imagination, but maybe for a slight boredom, or feeling no relation to the main character. I am not the best person to judge this genre since I prefer fantasy over sci-fi. Also, this book made me realize that I rarely read or listen to books from a male's perspective. The narrator reads the book and doesn't do other voices for characters so it's easy to get confused for who is saying what. I liked it okay, it has good character development and lots of action, but I I had a hard time getting into it and didn't love it. I more heard the words than had it play out in my mind, like I normally would. But again, I am not the target audience. I would have no desire to do the challenges, and with all the desire the characters have to go to Eden, besides money, Eden sounds like a horrible place. Did I miss something? I normally wouldn't finish a book I have a hard time getting through but I felt like something more had to happen... then it did in the last hour and ended with a huge cliff hanger.

I can't wait to read the next one. I am sure it will be better than the first one.
