This book felt like it was just a re-hashing of the forgetting. Sure, it's hundreds of years in the future and the main conflict is somewhat different. But it's the same basic premise - some people hold all the knowledge, and one person trying to change things wants to know more. It just wasn't as interesting as The Forgetting, and didn't feel original.
Also, I get why Emily Woo Zeller did the accent she did (as they remark in the book that Sam speaks haltingly/strangely a few times). However, listening to it for hours on end really grated on my nerves. She did this over-enunciated, whispery voice that was hard to listen to (and hear while driving at times). It certainly did not help my enjoyment of the book. The male narrator was perfect - no complaints there.

The only disappointment was the female narration. The voice was hard to understand at times and too soft. I would have to turn up my volume all the way to hear the female narrator and then turn it down when the male narrator began. Too often I had to replay the audio to understand what Samara had said. Made for a less enjoyable experience.
