This was a pretty good book! I really enjoyed the narrator (I listened to the audiobook). It was a male – of course – and he didn’t really try to change his voice for different characters. I appreciated that. Men just can’t pull off female voices, and women definitely can’t do male voices. And an adult doing a child’s voice will haunt you for all your days. Outside of the narration, though, the plot was pretty interesting. Nothing too dramatic happened, other than a huge chunk of the human population disappearing with no explanation. ;) It was just a simple fictional guess as to how humanity would react if such a thing happened. It was interesting to see how the family splintered apart…the ending was a bit vague, which always kind of bugs me, and I was disappointed in the choices most of the characters made, but what can you do? The book itself was written well, even if the characters made poor choices. lol!
