first time listener!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Park Service to be better than the print version?

Not better, but gives it a new dimension. I think I enjoyed listening so much because I read It first. But I absolutely love reading!!! I actually read along with it at first because I was not sure about it. I have never been interested in listening to books. Now I am a believer and can't wait to listen to all my favorite books.

What did you like best about this story?

It has a good solid story line with strong character's that you find yourself caring about. There is plenty of background given so that you get to know them.

What does Michael Braun bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He did a wonderful job reading the book and getting into each character. He brought them to life!!!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were a few such moments such as when Aubrey was in the elevator, the doors closing and his dad told him that he loved him. And actually there were a lot of moments that brought up different emotions, a sign of excellent writing!!

Any additional comments?

The only issue I had was that the screen on my kindle would say I was on say chapter 10, when it was actually on chapter 8. It was that way throughout the book. It did not take away from the experience of listening, just thought you might want to know....

Captivating story, interesting premise

What did you love best about The Park Service?

This is a book with a premise worth thinking about, discussing, even arguing about. What if the only way to save the world was to wipe out the human race? I really love a story that leaves me something to think about.

What other book might you compare The Park Service to and why?

The underground colony makes me think of The City of Ember. It's a different future, but the life in a limited world, then escape into the larger world is reminiscent.

Which scene was your favorite?

I suppose the scene when Aubrey learns to clean fish got to me in particular. The older man had seemed like he would never accept Aubrey, and then he gave him an important lesson and gifted him with his knife.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me angry when I thought of how much cruelty most people endured because of a few scientists who couldn't find a better way to deal with the dilemma of humans versus nature.

Any additional comments?

You really need to read all three books. This one just hints at what's coming next, and you won't expect most of the turns the plot ends up taking.
