Bought this because we were reading it in school, and it's nice to hear it as well as read it. Let me just say, this book takes messed up and brings it to its own whole new level. That is coming from someone who really enjoyed The Hunger Games. I'm appalled that our school would have us read it. If you want to know why it's so messed up you can keep reading for spoilers.
SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT.
The dad is holding the family captive and he's making the mother have kids for the family to get to know but then force them to eat. It is sick.
END OF SPOILERS.
All in all it is well written if you can get passed the grotesque parts of the plot. I did enjoy how relatable Eli is, and how it all ends. I do not fail to see the brilliance embedded in the work. I just found it particularly messed up and hard to get past.

I rarely find myself rushing back to a book, but this one was short enough that I could get through it in two days commuting to work. I found myself getting out the door just a little bit faster this morning so I could finish it, but had to sneak in the ending at work!
I enjoyed this as an adult, but it would be good for teens as well. The main character is intriguing and leads the listener through a well told story.
5 stars for the story, 4 stars for the narration as it was a bit dead-pan.
