The story is funny, edgy, interesting, extremely well written, anxious, dangerous, exciting, adventurous... the reading is astonishing and so filled with personality it is ridiculously hard to turn off. The inner monologue is so well written and then acted spot on. I think every character is overflowing with life and so distinguishable from each other that it becomes an inevitability for the audience to grow attached to each one. I am endeared to Callie and crack up over her traits from “Guffawing” to flipping the bird. I can hear it. I can see it. I can imagine it and I am so looking forward to more exhilarating story telling. Laura, I am hooked on your writing and will treasure your talent. You are the type of writer, and provide the type of characterization, I crave. Every character is sculpted into living and breathing entities. Your sentences are composed of articulately chosen words that easily allow listeners to envision the world you’re sharing without ever stumbling. It is never clumsy. Only graceful and dirty, raunchy and sexy and hilarious and sincere all entangled together into an envelope of affection. Susannah, damn girl! You rocked it! You are exactly the type of actor that brings audiobooks to life with every colour of the spectrum! You lilt and emphasize and whisper and proclaim so well that you took an excellent story and made it even more vibrant. You two make an exceptional team. Thank you!

I mean, talk about laugh out loud. I had to back up the play every bit just to hear what followed my belt of laughter. The writing, the narrating, both are so complimentary to each other it is hard to imagine that any duo could be more perfectly paired. Bravo! So eager to hear where Willa’s clumsiness takes her and what it gets her into. It’s awesome! So much fun!

Once again I hold a treasure of a story by A. G. Riddle filled with a magnanimous blend of science and AI with adventure, motivation, and determination. Each character is filled with distinguishable personality made even more prominent by exceptional actors giving life through astounding and synchronous voices.
The story advances with an excellent pace that readers / listeners will have no complications with. The story is entertaining, interesting, adventurous, educational, and extremely well composed. The humour and sarcasm mix well to enliven each conversation and person and enhance the listening experience. The story details are pieces together and released at well thought out points during the story and confirm Riddle has exceptional story telling abilities whilst maintaining faith in the readers and the way minds work to gather information and draw conclusions just in time to arrive at more information and better conclusions. Henry’s movie quotables are absolutely hilarious followed with James’ sarcasm. Such an enjoyable listen! But I will not divulge what happens. You must read this story to find out. You won’t be disappointed.
I can’t hardly wait to read book two. :)

Michael Sullivan’s incredible story telling and Tim Gerard Reynolds ability to give life and voice to characters is amplified by my adoration of the works as a whole and my dedication to the individuals as an each. I feel humbled and empowered at the same time. These stories are filled with diverse and colourful characters that readers and listeners can champion or despise as fitting. It gives pause to the confident, adoration to the beauty of ugliness, faith to the disbelievers, resilience to the weak, substantiation to the selfless
in the face of disbelief. It gives purpose to the sacrifice of a single person who believes in the face of futility. These stories will be timelessly amazing, lend cause to hope, and prove that the tiniest and most simple of caterpillars can become the biggest and most beautiful of butterflies.
