⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

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.
