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. <br/><br/>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. <br/>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. <br/><br/>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. <br/><br/>All in all this is a bad story. <br/><br/><br/>
