From start to finish I loved this book ! Don't remember where I got the suggestion, but it was a good one. I was worried that it might be violent and vulgar but it is not. Not even cussin'. It's a murder / mystery done a little different. Looking forward to book 2.

Always bring lots of guns to the Apocalypse

I have to agree with other reviewers here, that there is way too much story on guns here. That being said though even a not-gun nut like me listened to this story with interest. I liked that people and I could relate to Amanda. R.C. Bray did a great job even with the lady voices and paced the story well. great listen

Wish there had been more

I was so relieved when I got to the end. There was so nothing here. World development was good, but oh I never really knew any of the people. The narrator even seemed bored with it. Glad it was short.

Looking forward to next one!

I really enjoyed Sukie Stakehouse. She's serious and human, with all our human foibles. The story moves along . The characters are nicely developed and we like them. We don't find out , why our hero vamp was buddies with the other 3 miserable vamps that jarred, but hey we"re talking vamps and supernaturals. Loved the romp

Got through it !

Maybe it is because I only listened to this book 3 in the series, but I missed the whole point of it. Different people with a variety of experiences . Kate Reading held the whole thing together. Can't say I got anything out of it.

The world building in this story is really the best part. Mr. Bacigalupi took me there. What a world. Felt somewhat like the apocalypse and the dinosaurs . What with the heat and the mastodons. The people , however , not so well developed. Emico, sure after being a slave , she would want to find freedom . The rest of the cast are just fall prey to the usual motive of greed, and ambition, the captain of the white shirts is such a shining star. It moves alongs so it kept my interest, wondering really where is he going with this. The narration was very good. A lot of american accents for Thai people though, but it set in the future.

I like long books. They hold the promise of many hours spent in someone else's skin. However, when the long descriptions and many characters don"t advance the story or really contribute to the plot in a meaningful way it is just extra fluff. I lose interest. So it is with this story. I am ready to suspend my belief in reality to some extent for the purpose of entertainment, but there is a limit. A.G. Riddle exceeded that limit. Edouardo Bellerini did a good job reading it. That is what got me through.

narration is pitiful

i love dogs. i train and live with them. Lt. Cobb is a gutsy cop .Nancy Wu took that away from this story.She barely made it out of bed for Lt Cobb. Dina Perlman did a great job for Sam Moon. I would like to see the same for this.

What a great story. This is the second of Kristin Hannah's book my husband and I listened to. I found it was frustrating to watch the mom stay in her situation...it is what happens, so we hear. This book is all about desperation in a desperate place. But the author left room for hope and spring. Julia Whelan did an amazing job bringing this story to life. Yes !
