Reading progress update: I've listened 524 out of 524 minutes.
Team Human - Sarah Rees Brennan,Justine Larbalestier

I don't know how I feel about this. My annoyance with Mel in the first part of the book made me think it would be a solid 2-star read (listen), but my love of Kit (who thankfully was around a lot) and Camille (who didn't get nearly enough on-page time) raised it up enough for me to think it'd be a 3-star read. Most of the ending was predictable, but the stuff between Mel and Cathy was really well done, and the last hour and a half or so made me cry multiple times. So now I'm not sure how I feel overall.

๏ ๏ ๏  My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 
Loved it on Audio, and I knew I would...With Full-Cast narration, it totally rocks.  If you've ever thought about trying out an Audiobook, this is good series to start with, the only issue may be that it could you spoil you for most books which only have one, maybe two, narrators.  I read an ARC of this earlier in 2018 and my review can be seen here.

I think Cathy is an idiot. However, Mel needs to realize that, ultimately, Cathy is the one who gets to decide what to do with her own life. Even if her decision is really, really stupid.

"There are books about it. There are stories in the paper all the time. Did you see that one about the vampire guy who kept dating all the girl descendants in this one family? Can you imagine being, like, 'Granny's ex sure is hot!'"

 

That would be so awkward.

 

And we still haven't addressed the issue of Francis being much, much older than Cathy. It's been mentioned, yes, but that's pretty much it. Are there laws about this sort of thing? Does Francis's physical age make the fact that he's dating a teen okay? And what happens if he and Cathy are still together once Cathy's legally an adult? Will he suddenly count as an adult then? Or does he count as both a teen and an adult right now?

"That's why it's best that I go with you, Uncle Francis. You could have one of your senile fits and end up forgetting your way home. Think how we'd miss you. Think how we'd miss the lute playing."

 

It has taken almost 3 hours, but I have finally found a character in this book that I enjoy. Actually, I think I like Camille too. More Kit and Camille, please.
