The heavy Christian messaging was really annoying and kind of made me want to stop listening. I probably won't buy the next book.

Remake starts off as a dystopian novel staged in a society where over population is said to be the cause of a killer virus leading to the demise of the human race.
Nine is part of a “batch” of young kids created as part of their no more free procreation plan in which “batches” of babies are made by the “makers” at a chosen pace, thus limiting population growth.
The children are held back from reaching puberty until their 17th birthday at which point they undergo a remake allowing them to alter any and all physical characteristic choose to become male or female as well as choose their future occupation.
However, soon after we are introduced to this world Nine is torn from it, and the book continues in what can only be described as a conservative puritan lecture of the importance of sexual purity, family values, and having lots and lots of kids, all masquerading as a poorly written love story.
All in all this is a bad story.
