Definatly worth a listen!
I enjoyed the story alot had a few things that bothered me like the year this all takes place and some of the techonology in the book, but dont let that detur you from listening to this audio book!
Excellent story that I originally listened to years ago. I’m listening to it again and totally floored by the fact that Tracy based his dystopia in 2020. How prophetic!
I personal Really enjoyed this one
I listen to this book just after the Author First Wrote it many years ago. It is every bit as good as I remember it this time around.
