Will I continue this series? A resounding yes…
This was phenomenal, I just couldn't stop listening to it. I listened to most of it in one day. It has a full cast of narrators and I have to say…wow! Every person has their own voice…awesome-sauce!!!
This is written in an interesting way, sort of similar to The Illuminae Files format, but not as crazy. It's all done in a series of interviews given by a man who remains nameless throughout the entire book. He is…ugh…annoying, but essential to the story.
This book is not without it's flaws, but honestly I loved it anyway. Character development suffers with it's unique format but it doesn't lack in sarcasm or intensity. I was also lost as to what might be going on towards the end, or what they were alluding to. There is a guy (who I pictured to look like George Carlin, because he sounded like him) who tells weird-ass stories, try to listen to them, because…I think…they have more meaning then they appear to.
⇝Sex Factor⇜ Yes, but not explicit.
