Sadly not as good as the first book, the main character can be very grating which makes it difficult to get behind her. it was once again very well narrated.

The story itself was interesting, engaging and original. The characters were a little nauseating at times and occasionally seemed very unbelievable but the story itself made up for this. It was an gripping look at the future!

Vacuous nonsense

I was about to give a scathing review of a vacuous and unbelievable novel but despite toe curling narration and a nauseating performance, the story line is actually quite refreshing. It's ultimately a love story; the two main characters fall in love, are in love and remain in love - the rocky bits happen around them. This is the only realistic bit about it - a relatively normal relationship. This was the only unpredictable bit about the book. However this doesn't save it. The main character is self centred, spoilt and the other wet characters pander to her contInuously. Easy reading, chic-lit is a great genre but this adds nothing to the field - the sickly sweetness is far, far too much.

A thought provoking listen with an original take on the narrative voice. The acting from the readers was engaging and powerful.
