MY RATING⇢ 4.8 STARS | GRADE A



MY THOUGHTS


Blake Crouch has a way of taking you for a ride...one wild and crazy ride with thought-provoking situations and dilemma's that leave you contemplating the meaning of life and love and the pursuit of happiness and such.  He also does science fiction in a way that is easily digestible.

For the sake of a Reading Challenge (Halloween Bingo), I went into this knowing certain aspects of it, and I don't believe knowing that ruined the story...because ultimately I didn't really know where this was going to end up.   I just kind of let it take me where it would...and wow the taking was intense, especially that ending.  I would have really loved to know what happened to Amanda, though.

The Audio was excellently executed by Jon Lindstrom, who is also an actor, and it shows...he was amazing, really brought the story to life.  FYI, this would be amazing as a TV Show, or a Movie, but I don't think a movie could really get the scope of it.
