Gave Up

Too much unnecessary description.
Unrealistic things happening.
readers voice highly irritating
Gave up as soon as Spark was introduced in the book.
apologies if this as actually meant for children . certainly not one for an older adult.

So so

What a shame. This book started out amazing and quickly fizzled into mediocrity and eye rolling at times as Cathy (an 18 year old genius who couldn’t remember names or how robots work) but she could work out how to save the world.

One thing I must say is I hope no one ever get the technology to manipulate people as they do in this book.

I am sad as this book could have been fabulous.

Science Fiction Adventure

This is a unique, interesting, imaginative science fiction story with plenty of suspense and occasional humorous moments. The characters are likable and relatable. The futuristic technologies are plausible. The plot moves along at a good pace in keeping with the suspense of the story. The narrator (Sarah Pavelec) has a pleasant voice which is easy to understand. I was given a free review copy of this audio book and am voluntarily leaving this review.
