The boy is taken one day and, after some time, Jack decides to go and try to find him. The premises of this story were so good, a post-apocalptic world with so many clues to find out, but the story and characters were as lifeless as an empty shell. It is very slowly paced because the main story is very often interrupted by flashbacks. In most occasions these flashback parts are longer than the main story ones, which gives a boring rhythm to the book.
These flashbacks should have helped to give some depth to the characters and show how important Jack and Ryan's relationship was, but it failed at it, keeping the characters flat and their relationship as something almost casual. With what we got it is difficult to understand Jack's motivations. The end is quite predictable and you see it coming from far, which feels quite anticlimactic.
Josiah John Bildner just used two voices, a neutral one, used for the narration and most of the characters including women , and a rougher one, for some of the male characters. Sound effects were used when voices came out of loudspeakers, but even like that, they all sounded the same. There were important changes of volume when a sound effect or a different voice was used, and I also observed long silences between the end of a chapter and the beginning of the next. The concept of this book was very good and succeeds at awakening the curiosity in the reader, but it fails to deliver what we need to know and recreates in meaningless details from the past.
I would have appreciated a deeper exploration of the characters but done in a subtler way with shorter flashes from the past. There are still many unanswered questions that would make for another good volume, but the things exposed in this story, along with the characters, feel somehow incomplete. This post apocalyptic world was a very good conception but it sadly failed at the execution.
Jul 21, Keith rated it liked it Shelves: audio. I read part one, and found it mostly flat. Neither the story not the characters were particularly intriguing.
There was just enough of a teaser at the conclusion of part one to spur me on to the rest of the story. I picked up the audiobook version of the omnibus parts , and was left with the exact same experience This isn't meant to be an action packed dystopian, post apocalyptic story. That much is clear. But then, I expect to be given more about the characters' thoughts and feeli I read part one, and found it mostly flat.
But then, I expect to be given more about the characters' thoughts and feelings and this story didn't do that, either. The main character is uninteresting. He's in a bad situation, but that isn't really conveyed with enough emphasis to generate any empathy within the reader. The story presents far too little about the dystopian society that has shut out the main character, and many others like him.
This is not a true omnibus because there is actually a part five and, consistent with my experience at the end of part one, there's just enough here to get me to finish off the story. So onward I go Feb 17, Bernie Morris rated it it was amazing. Loved it, and immediately bought next in series.
